    Some people think this could be a cheap device and a controller that plays games by streaming-only.
    Others think it be a real, physical console hardware. Or both.

    Thoughts? I'd be interested for any exclusive Sega games, whatever Google's effort turns out to be.

    The console will be super cheap and stream free games. but they'll be created in such a way that google discovers what kinda person you are to make organized advertising better.

    Microsoft had a strong presence in PC gaming in the 90s from games to joysticks. Sony published games on consoles & made the SNES sound chip plus learned from the CD add on with Nintendo. MS tried to Buy SEGA & Nintendo. They at least had a segway into the consoles. What does Google have? Sorry Android store doesn't cut it. MS came in just as SEGA was leaving the hardware business, many SEGA fans migrated over to Xbox since it had DC ports and sequels. I remember hearing about MS entering console gaming and thought, yeah it makes sense esp after Windows CE was on Dreamcast. Sony entered as Nintendo & SEGA fucked up their systems. The market can barely contain 3 systems. MS, Sony & Nintendo are not leaving the console space anytime soon. So Google doesn't really have a spot to fill. What can they really offer? Sony & MS still made sense back then.


    Also, Google has a bad habit of abandoning things after a year or 2.



    Life!? ... What console is that on?

    "Rumored" meaning some guy on Youtube said something without a shred of evidence.

    The links posted suggest that this will be a streaming device - streaming game play that is running on Google's servers.

    Google doesn't have a good track record when it comes to hardware. They seem quick to abandon things. At least, that's my impression.

    Kotaku article from June 2018 - Sources: Google Is Planning A Game Platform That Could Take On Xbox And PlayStation

    Over the past few months, the wildest rumors in video game industry circles haven’t involved the PlayStation 5 or Xbox Two. The most interesting chatter has centered on a tech company that’s been quietly making moves to tackle video games in a big way: Google, the conglomerate that operates our email, our internet browsers, and much more.

    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. That’s the word from five people who have either been briefed on Google’s plans or heard about them secondhand.

    A Black Falcon: no, computer games and video games are NOT the same thing. Video games are on consoles, computer games are on PC. The two kinds of games are different, and have significantly different design styles, distribution methods, and game genre selections. Computer gaming and console (video) gaming are NOT the same thing."

    And it integrates with Google Home, so when you make off-handed mention of an upcoming game, it pre-orders it for you.

    Aw, and I was hoping to integrate it with my Google+ account. /s
    Managed memory, in my VDP? It's more likely than you think.
    Expand your ROM size with this one weird pointer dereference (Fonzie hates them).

    Keeping the list of new physically released homebrew games up to date! ...And looking to buy a few I've missed.

    Google/Sega Chromecast 2: 09/09/19.
    Believe!

    All joking aside I expect other big tech companies to jump into console gaming in some ways (like Apple and Amazon) because they are all eyeing the rising opportunity of a paradigm shift in the console industry based on streaming/internet services.

    Oh shit, now I can see all the clickbait youtubers rushing to jump on this…

    Also not going to lie, I could see Sega joining as a publisher. It's not uncommon for big publishers to jump into new platforms just in case they happen to be the next big thing. I mean, game.com is a turd yet its games are big licenses… Also everybody who jumped on Zeebo.

    I'm kind of on a fuck Google kick, so... yeah. Way more monopolistic and invasive than any one company ever needs to be.

    I'm surprised there are no leaks about it.
