Google gets into gaming with streaming service launch

Google Stadia PS4 Play Station 4 3

We know now that cloud gaming is the future of gaming, period.

According to the report, Walmart has been talking with publishers and game developers since the beginning of the year, but that it has been "secretive" about its discussions.

It's unknown how far along the development of the service has gone, if at all, but, if we really think about it, it's not that much of a surprise that the retail giant has chose to take this step. Google's gaming platform can support 4K resolutions and smooth 60 frames-per-second frame rates. The Labs have around 6000 employees who dedicate their working hours exclusively to improving Walmart's digital branch. Exploring the possibilities, Walmart also has a data center in Caverna, Missouri, and the company possesses more than 460 trillion bytes of data.

Huddersfield relegated to Championship after Crystal Palace defeat
Huddersfield have now joined Derby County as the quickest team to confirm their fate sealing the drop just after 32 games. Unsurprisingly they are also widely considered the very worst team to ever play in the Premier League .

Moreover, Google's gaming platform will be heavily reliant on similar data centers, the same kind that other tech companies like Apple, Google, and Microsoft manage and use for their own platforms. The service is bolstered by Google's own first-party game studio and is expected to launch later this year.

We do not have any concrete details about Walmart's plans, but even if the company has such a plan on the cards, it will take a while.

Microsoft previously revealed that it is working on its own game streaming service currently called Project xCloud, and Sony already offers its own alternative in the form of PlayStation Now.
