Google lança plataforma de jogos
March 20, 2019 -- A Google revelou uma nova plataforma de jogos em nuvem chamada Stadia, capaz de correr jogos de vídeo com qualidade de consola em vários dispositivos, como televisores, computadores, tablets e smartphones. Este tipo de jogos só estava tradicionalmente disponível para jogar em consolas como a PlayStation 4 ou a XBox One, usando software descarregado da internet ou adquirido em disco.
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.
