We now have more details about Google’s rumored gaming venture.
Kotaku published a report Thursday in which five sources confirmed that the tech company was developing a video game streaming service similar to GeForce Now. Though there are still a lot of unanswered questions about the undertaking, insiders told the publication that the platform would include some type of hardware that could rival PlayStation and Xbox. Sources also claim Google will attempt to join forces with game developers either “through aggressive recruiting or even major acquisitions.” The web giant is said to have met with a number of big-time gaming companies in recent months; however, Google has not made an official announcement about the platform codenamed Yeti.

alien ware alpha is king
LUL just get a pc
Google are huge this is going to be groundbreaking
I have to see it to believe it 😑
2020 Rumor wave that amazon is also making its own console while wishing to compete against Google, Playstation, Xbox, and Nintendo
Lol Google no one wants to stream games. Not till you get google fiber out everywhere and start offering cheaper plans instead of just 1gb or 5mbs. Work on finishing that then start talking about streaming games. If the console cant run games via blu ray or downloaded then itll flop for sure no question. Theyd have to burst into the e3 scene and all that to build hype around it too. But like I said before unless you have a stable fast internet connection thatll never make the games lag itll flop. Most Americans dont have good internet as is. And most don't want to stream their games. So itll be a niche market.
whats GeoForce Now?
Doesn't matter for me, dont trust America, I'm either buying Nintendo or playstation
remember that episode of black mirror about gaming? stay woke
Dont get mad isnt "Geoforce" is Geforce Now
Google should team up with sega
As long as it aint no damn Ouya clone
Time to buy more shares
Interesting. If they make all games downloadable, all you'll need is additional hard drives as attachments instead of buying the physical games. Probably have all your games backed up on the cloud.
Unless they get some crazy exclusives, they ain't gonna pull it off.
Ps and Xbox needs competition
It'll probably have better exclusive than Xbox… FUCKSAKE!
Lemme get that 2k20 on a GooBox.
wow that told me literally nothing i didn't already know
It's all about exclusive titles, a few big titles and they have a legit selling point.
Geoforce now lmao
This might be a great idea but cmon XBOX & Playstation???? 😁 😁 😁 😁
Bro if u get to stream games that would be so cool
Still not gonna be better than pc
Nvidia Shield TV
Hopefully they obtain the rights to the NFL and make a Football game.
This would be dope.
G station 1
Human Data collection is about go up a notch
Amazon wya make your alexa console
Hopefully this is fake, I feel like with 4 consoles to choose from it would kill Nintendo
This could be gaming history in the making…
A new contender emerges to the console war
I knew this was coming ivsaid 2 years ago wouldnt it bd crazy ig google entered the gaming scene
Lol that shit gonna FLOP
The big 3(Microsoft,Sony and Nintendo) have made it virtually impossible for a new console to exist now. Google would need to do something truly innovative and have full support from the top devs/publishers. Remember the Sega dreamcast
Damn Google trying to take over another industry. But I can dig it. Get that money 💰
Google is Skynet.
