Summary
  • Google confirmed that its cloud game-streaming service Stadia – one of the many contenders to be the so-called “Netflix for games” – will launch on Nov 19 2019.
  • Stadia does not require a console or its video games to be downloaded to specific hardware; instead, it can run high-end games on cloud servers that can be played directly by streaming over the internet to low-end hardware.
  • Google is just one of many entities across big tech, gaming, and telecom vying for position in the cloud-gaming market.
  • It may take a few years but the reasons why so many players are gearing up for cloud gaming are that it will likely be lucrative and, at this point, it appears inevitable.
