Nintendo And Sony Shares Drop Following Google's Stadia Reveal

Google unveils its new cloud-powered game streaming platform Stadia

Google Chrome To Add Support For Nintendo Switch Controller

The service is expected to launch in late 2019 in the U.S., Canada, the United Kingdom and most of Europe.

Walmart is reportedly the latest company to get involved in the trend of video game streaming services, just days after Google unveiled its Stadia service.

Earlier this week, Google revealed Stadia, a platform which aims to allow game streaming on any device with a Chrome browser. Stadia is a streaming service which will run on Google's current servers, which promises to bring no loading and instant gameplay, exclusively using your wi-fi.

At any rate, I'm excited to see major firms competing to build the ultimate game streaming service. It's unclear if Sony will expand the scope of PlayStation Now to include brand new releases, but at the very least, exclusives should be added to the service at some point after launch. While no well known game titles were announced with Stadia's introduction, Google is hoping to remedy that with its own game design studio in the future. According to the report, Stadia will be a gaming platform for everyone. Moreover, the company is expected to launch the service later in 2019 in the U.S., Canada, the United Kingdom and most of Europe. When launched, games can be streamed across laptops, desktops, tablets, phones, and TVs.

The controller also includes a button for Google Assistant, so players can look up walkthroughs or hints without disturbing their gameplay.

Marcus Rashford ruled out of qualifiers
Speaking at the time, he said: "Like so many people around the world, I consider myself to be of mixed nationality. Marcus Rashford is the sixth player to have withdrawn from Gareth Southgate's England squad this week.

Cloud gaming services are one of the biggest topics in tech this week, and yet, you wouldn't necessarily expect that Walmart would enter the fray.

Lucas Matney of TechCrunch initially had issues with their Google Stadia demo of Doom, as the game's resolution reduced and the frame rate turned into a "fast-paced PowerPoint presentation". It's not just that there are multiple companies working on this, they're also trying different approaches.

Cuthbert discussed some of the examples possible with State Share. A feature in Stadia called Crowd Play is responsible for that.

Stadia is set to release this year, but that's all that's known.
