Google recently announced that they plan on releasing their own gaming platform called “Stadia”. It is a game streaming service that allows users to play games without having to invest a lot of money towards a gaming console or computer. Rather than having a system that runs the game using hardware built into the system, it would stream the game, like the way Netflix streams movies and TV shows. This will cut the overall price of gaming down significantly. Another one of Stadia’s main selling points is accessibility. All that is necessary to play games via Stadia. is a tablet, PC, TV or even a phone. When announced, Stadia left gamers with a lot of concerns. Many popular multiplayer games depend on the reaction of the gamer and with all of the processing being done through the cloud, there is no doubt that latency and performance will become an issue while playing. Also being that the games are streamed to users and not purchased by them, the game does not belong to them, and they give up the freedom of giving it away or selling the game. While these arising concerns may pose a threat to the success of this service, if executed correctly, Stadia could shift the future of gaming.
