Stadia: a new way to play

🔒 www.blog.google

I fully expect cloud-based multiplayer gaming is going to be a huge deal. 🎮

When we designed the Stadia controller, we listened to gamers about what they wanted in a controller. First, we made sure to develop a direct connection from Stadia controller to our data center through Wi-Fi for the best possible gaming performance. The controller also includes a button for instant capture, saving and sharing gameplay in up to 4k of stunning resolution. And it comes equipped with a Google Assistant button and built-in microphone.

The whole thing is the controller. I don’t get how they are dealing with latency though. Milliseconds matter in games, and WiFi is full of it. Not to mention speed-of-light limitations in moving packets from data centers. 🤔
