Google unveiled its new video game platform, Stadia that is developed to deliver an instant access to favorite games on any type of screen, whether TV, laptop, desktop, tablet or mobile phone. According to Phil Harrison, Vice President and GM at Google Stadia said, “Our goal is to make those games available in resolutions up to 4K and 60 frames per second with HDR and surround sound. We’ll be launching later this year in select countries including the U.S., Canada, U.K. and much of Europe.”
Harrison added, “To build Stadia, we’ve thought deeply about what it means to be a gamer and worked to converge two distinct worlds: people who play video games and people who love watching them. Stadia will lift restrictions on the games we create and play—and the communities who enjoy them.”
The company claims that using its globally connected network of Google data centers, Stadia will free players from the limitations of traditional consoles and PCs as well as they’ll be able to access their games at all times, and on virtually any screen.
It will also provide developers an access to nearly unlimited resources to create the games. The company believes that it’s powerful hardware stack combining server class GPU, CPU, memory and storage, and with the power of Google’s data center infrastructure, Stadia can evolve as quickly as the imagination of game creators.
