Google Stadia chief claims you'll need a 30Mbps connection to play

The Google Stadia controller

If the report is accurate, we may just have another major player in the game streaming space.

The news follows in the footsteps of Google's game streaming platform, Stadia, unveiled at the company's GDC 2019 keynote.

The news was from broken by 9to5Google last month, who in turn made found a report about the planned update on a Chromium Gerrit page. The service is bolstered by Google's own first-party game studio and is expected to launch later this year.

Such an approach could limit the revenue that Google could get from Stadia. While Stadia platforms that support the Adaptive Controller have not been confirmed, it is highly likely that the controller will only work with Stavia on a PC, Mac, laptop, or tablet that supports USB inputs.

According to the folks over at US Gamer, American retailer Walmart is also interested in setting up a game streaming platform of its very own.

The game would operate on Google's servers, receiving commands from a user's controller and sending video streams to their screen.

It was also curious that Google said nothing on stage about what kind of Internet connection speed is necessary to enjoy games at the resolutions Google expects to offer. Most games on consoles today only allow people to play against others using the same console as they are, but cross-platform between devices opens up a whole new world for players. It gives players "instant access" to a game by clicking a link. The controller will look like a blend between an Xbox and PS4 controller and will be connected directly through Wi-Fi to link the Stadia service to a game session in the cloud. Further, Google has partnered with popular video game development software like Unreal Engine, Unity, and Havok. Share your views in the comments and keep reading Fossbytes.

With that said, Harrison was quick to point out that there will "obviously" be a title that will release "only" on Stadia.
