GOOGLE GAMES CONSOLE – WHAT CAN WE EXPECT FROM THE GOOGLE GAMES REVEAL? PREDICTIONS?
It’s rumoured that Google will be lifting the lid on a games streaming service and a fully fledged console at GDC 2019.
In terms of the streaming service, a test Google carried out last year may give fans an indication of what’s in store.
We know Google have been working on their Project Stream tech, which lets gamers stream titles via an internet browser.
And in 2018 Google ran a test which had current-gen title Assassin’s Creed Odyssey streamed via Chrome.
The ability to stream games that run on the PS4 and Xbox One simply over an internet browser opens up huge possibilities.
Having that tech in place could do away with the need to own a console entirely and would severely reduce the cost of entry for gaming.
Rumours are also swirling that Google could be working with a major player in the games industry on their new console.
It’s rumoured that Sega could be working in partnership with Google to produce games for the streaming service and the console.
The prospect of Sega returning to play a pivotal role in the console wars will undoubtedly get plenty of gamers excited.
But as always with rumours it’s best to take them with a big dollop of salt until official confirmation.
