Stadia, a gaming platform from Google

Do you also play with non-PlayStation devices? Do you enjoy playing as a plumber saving a princess? Or some bald marines? Or maybe you want to play using the touchscreen?

streaming 4K, 60fps, HDR

So it's obvious why Assassin's Creed co-creator, Jade Raymond, was hired by Google. It's because of Google's venture into gaming.

Announced from GDC.

As expected of the very first version of a new system, like the first iPhone, many great features are not yet ready on Day 1.
Just days away from Stadia’s Founder Edition launch, Google has confirmed during a Reddit AMA session that the streaming service will be missing a number of key features; most notably, the ability to run Stadia via existing Chrome Cast Ultra devices, family sharing, and Crowd Play game-sharing.
You can’t even play with a friend, either, because Buddy Play is also disabled at launch. That, if you remember, was the free Stadia pass you were supposed to be able to send a friend so that you could multiplayer together. It was one of the Founder’s Editions big sell points, but they aren’t coming for several weeks after launch now.
Of course, we’ve known for a while that Stadia’s achievement system won’t be available at launch, either.
