    Default Google Stadia

    I guessed this would be the future of gaming about 5 years ago. I don't know if this is the system that will ultimately last, but I can definitely see games as a service becoming more dominant, and available on non hardware specific platforms.

    In the future I'll bet you can buy Game Pass, Stadia, and Playsation Network for a monthly fee and just stream to your appletv, androidtv, Roku, whatever.

    Microsoft’s Xbox boss responds to Google Stadia, promises ‘we will go big’ for E3

There were no big surprises in their announcement although I was impressed by their leveraging of YouTube, the use of Google Assistant and the new WiFi controller.
    But I want get back to us, there has been really good work to get us to the position where we are poised to compete for 2 billion gamers across the planet. Google went big today and we have a couple of months until E3 when we will go big.
    We have to stay agile and continue to build with our customer at the center. We have the content, community, cloud team and strategy, and as I’ve been saying for a while, it’s all about execution. This is even more true today.
    Energizing times.

    This is the important thing to note, coupled with the pending "streaming" edition of X-Box. This isn't going to be a fad, and I don't think Sony will be able to compete in the next iteration of "console" wars without some major investments into data warehousing. Stadia (Google Cloud), Xbox "Next" (Microsoft Azure), and "Fire" (Amazon AWS) will likely be the three major steaming "platforms".

    The "state" play is one of the most interesting ideas Google presented, especially since its provided via weblink and can just be passed around. This will make things like Twitch and YouTube gaming MUCH, MUCH more immersive.
