Having a high-end computer or any one of the boxes (Xbox, PlayStation) is not necessary to play high end games in the near future. Recently Google announced a new product from its armory related to gaming at GDC2019, called Stadia.
Stadia offers to stream the game in the web browser itself. The game will be loaded and run on the server side, only the video will be played on your computer/mobile. This can be called as Cloud Gaming or Game as a Service (GaaS). All we need is a decent internet connection and probably a subscription for Stadia. No need for any boxes.
The traditional premium boxes will be second thought. Since they are expensive for a casual gamer, Stadia will be the best option to experience big games. High tech spec GPUs, high speed processors and all the expensive hardware part will be saved.
Hmm, it sounds awesome!!
This is another master plan by Google to rule the digital world. Already Google and it's echo system is way more penetrated in the digital world. This might be another ace in the hole. It has been an old idea. but not worked well due to the network capabilities.
In the upcoming 5G and low latency network era, Google's Stadia can be a GAME changer.
