Google's video game controller has (potentially) been revealed early in patent filings

This is based on a new patent that revolves around a controller. Given how mmost game controllers lean towards black colors, this Google controller will easily stand out. The company's since run a trial of what it's calling Project Stream, and Yanko Design has discovered a patent published a little over a month ago detailing a controller that Google designed; it could give us some clues about what it has in store for gamers.

The company could release a low-priced set-top box similar to an Ouya that plugs into TVs and plays mobile games, select AA titles, and acts as a main conduit for the Project Stream cloud streaming subscription. It's also got a central Google button (maybe that brings you to some kind of Chrome game menu, akin to Steam's Big Picture Mode?), a microphone button ideal for Google Assistant, and two basic menu buttons that can't even be called Start and Select anymore, because the industry has seemingly done away with such classic conventions forever.

The patent itself refers to a notification system working between a gaming controller and a gaming system, but it comes with some interesting images attached.

The Reps Twitter account posted a tweet showing off renders of the controller. The game may be launched on the host device in response to an activation signal that is dispatched from the game controller. It mostly talks about notifications being received on the controller, possibly conveyed via haptic feedback.

Right up front the online gamer community has embraced the new controller with all of the sensitivity and tact of a frat BBQ, with many a criticism of it's comfort, design and the quality of the gaming service been called into question.

This year's GDC kicks off March 19th in San Fransisco, CA.

"We haven't heard many specifics about Google's video game plans, but what we have heard is that it's a three-pronged approach: 1) Some sort of streaming platform, 2) some sort of hardware, and 3) an attempt to bring game developers under the Google umbrella, whether through aggressive recruiting or even major acquisitions".
