On March 19th, Google announced there plans for there own gaming console. Google has said that it will be a streaming like service where you will have to pay a monthly fee to play a library full of Triple A games. There won’t be an actual console itself so you can play any game anywhere.

Users can also use it on any device such as a phone, computer, TV, etc. At launch, only the United States and Canada is where the service will be available to. With one simple click on any game you can start playing, you don’t need to download anything at all. When Google does this, they will be joining the gaming industry.

Supposedly, you can play on the best graphics even if your computer or TV is not that good. Google is still trying to find ways to do this but right now it’s still not clear. You can play on any device that is connected to the internet, you can also buy a controller made from google that will work on any of your devices to run any game you would like. The controller is a nice addon if you want to play on mobile or a computer because its almost like playing on a real console.

The CEO of google has said this “With stadia, the datacenter is your platform. A gamer can start on one platform and then pick up where they left off on another device, which means you might game on your computer and then continue on your phone when you leave the house.”

7th Grader Matthew Ocegueda says this, “I think that people won’t like it that much based on its popularity. It will most likely be relevant for a year or so and then people will forget about it.”

The first game that ran on Google Stadia was Assassin’s Creed and from the live show of the game being played it looked pretty smooth and good. A lot of fans liked the look of everything as well. Assassin’s Creed on PC or any other console requires good hardware, so the progress they have made on the look of games is pretty good so far. Maybe in the future we will be able to see more games and tests on different games.

In summary, the Google Stadia will be a Netflix-like streaming device for gaming. It will have many features and will be very portable since you can use it anywhere without a base console. This system is the next generation of console and will possibly inspire other companies to create something even better than the Google Stadia.
