Google startet neue Spiele- plattform

Graphic News

March 20, 2019 -- Google stellt eine neue bahnbrechende Spieleplattform vor, "Stadia",
die Spiele in Konsolenqualität auf mehrere Geräte wie TV, PC, Tablets und Smartphones überträgt. Diese Art von Spielen war bisher nur auf eigener Hardware verfügbar, wie z.B. Playstation 4 oder X-Box X. Die dafür benötigte Software wurde aus dem Internet oder von gekauften Disketten heruntergeladen.

Google may be about to steal a march on the video game business, and change its future, by allowing viewers of YouTube gaming videos to simply click a button and actually enter that game and begin playing it themselves.

Introduced at the Game Developers Conference in San Francisco by Google CEO Sundar Pichai, “Stadia” will be a cloud-based system where games run elsewhere, on Google's own high-end hardware, but users connect to the game with their device via the web.

The technology will operate best when used with Stadia’s dedicated controller which links directly to Google’s servers to interact with the game, rather than via the device being used to view it on. This will reduce latency or lag (the delay between a player performing an action, and the game reacting to that move) and improve the quality of play.

No pricing has yet been revealed but Google says Stadia will launch in 2019 in the US, Canada, UK and Europe.

NEW GRAPHIC NEWS - a new website for a new era.

28 years ago — April 2, 1991 — the original Graphic News launched using a precursor to today’s websites that used email technology. These enabled infographics to be delivered electronically around the world over telephone lines. What was possible was very limited - It took 10 minutes for a 100K file to download.

Since then delivery speeds and website technology have moved on. The new website will offer the best online experience possible now, adding many new features (and offering new opportunities for the future), but still enabling existing users to select and download infographics and enjoy the distinct brand of visual journalism that is Graphic News.

Over the coming weeks I will give further information. Please contact me if you have any questions. Fiona Roberts, froberts @
