Forget buying a new gaming console every few years. With Google's Stadia platform, the data center is your console. It provides near-instant streaming of games at 60 frames-per-second in up to 4K HDR quality across laptops, desktops, phones, tablets, and TVs. While it works with existing controllers, a special Stadia controller will offer a direct Wifi connection to the cloud for easier screen-to-screen transitions, a dedicated streaming button — one of the many ways the service ties into YouTube — and a dedicated Google Assistant button with special help options specifically for Stadia games. Arriving later this year, with further details, including pricing, expected this summer.
