Google shaking up video game world with Stadia

Techstination feature for Friday, March 29, 2019

Techstination, your destination for gadgets and gear.   I’m Fred Fishkin.        Google is shaking up the world of video games….unveiling Stadia…a cloud gaming platform that will turn just about any device running the Chrome browser…into a game machine.   At this month’s Game Developer Conference, Google CEO Sundar Pichai said…

“If you think about games, there are a lot of barriers for users to play high end games.  Beautiful graphics really need high end consoles or PCs.  And games don’t have instant access.  Think about the way the Web works, you can easily share a link and it works seamlessly.    We want games to feel that way too.  Instantly enjoyable with access for everyone.

Google’s tag line for Stadia is No Boxes, No Downloads, No Limits.    It is due to arrive this year..pricing hasn’t been announced.
