Google is launching a game-streaming service, Stadia

Google's cloud gaming service, Stadia, will launch later this year and support 4K game streams. It means that players won't have to purchase a box that sits under the TV in order to play, theoretically liberating video games from hardware altogether.

If, for instance, you're watching a trailer for a game, you can click "play now" and start playing within a matter of seconds. No download, no patch, no update, no install.

If you're concerned that multi-stream games might not be playing on their highest setting on Stadia, you'd be incorrect.

At launch, Stadia will provide gaming experiences on desktop, laptop, TV, tablets, and phones.

Existing accessories - USB controllers or mouse and keyboard - will work with Stadia, but the Stadia controller is also being rolled out.

The Queen and Prince Charles release statements following New Zealand mosque attacks
Anwar Gargash, the United Arab Emirates' minister of state for foreign affairs, tweeted , "heartfelt condolences" to New Zealand. Last year, the prime minister announced the country would boost its annual refugee quota from 1,000 to 1,500 starting in 2020.

DF tested out Assassin's Creed Odyssey running at 1080p and 30fps using WiFi and an Internet connection of about 200mbps, and found there was around 166ms, or 10 frames/a third of a second, of lag on their button presses. There is expected to be both a software and hardware component to Google's announcement. Google's next big effort is to build a game platform for everyone.

Custom tools: A suite of debugging and tuning tools help you get the most out of our platform, from fine-tuning streaming performance to diagnosing GPU crashes. - Google's preshow let our imaginations run wild with what Stadia might ultimately support.

Along with these two, Google will focus on securing your apps with Google Cloud, how to focus AI products to "human-centred", and also show off what's new with Chrome and the Web.

We expect some more details to surface at Game Developer's Conference starting from tomorrow.

So, no, Stadia is not as responsive as native hardware, but it's not a huge difference. Dylan Cuthbert of Q-Games was on stage to announce that he was developing a game specifically around this concept. But Stadia will have a specialized controller that connects to Wi-Fi and directly links up to servers for improved compatibility and integration.

Lady Gaga has responded to pregnancy rumours in the best possible way
She earned an Oscar nomination for Best Actress for " A Star Is Born " and won for Best Original Song for " Shallow ". Today, she took to Twitter to announce that she's pregnant with her next studio album, which she's calling LG6.

But Apple Inc's App Store sold about $33 billion worth of games a year ago, and the games industry views Amazon.com Inc's Twitch, rather than YouTube, as the most popular video streaming service for content related to video games. Other Google acquisitions, such as their 2014 purchase of Green Throttle Games-a video game and video game peripheral developer founded by Charles Huang, who previously co-founded Guitar Hero developer ReddOctane-could give some idea of Google's ambitions.

The fourth video shows "State Share", which records the world state, the player's position, and their inventory in a simple URL that can be shared with everyone.

Not much is known about Stadia Games and Entertainment, aside from what Jade Raymond touched on during today's reveal.

If Google Stadia really wants to be gaming's great equalizer, one of its most forward-thinking moves would be to make AAA gaming available to everyone, not just a handful of wealthy regions.
