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 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.

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.

But Stadia will have a specialized controller that connects to Wi-Fi and directly links up to servers for improved compatibility and integration.
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.
