Google is releasing at an unspecified time in 2019 is a new service.
It must be called Stadia, and is a service of the type of 'cloud-gaming', which is the name for a type of streaming services to the computer games.
The type of services will there will be many more of in the future, believes the Danish spilekspert and founder of Pixel.tv Thomas Bense.
Cloud-gaming is in itself not a new concept. Others have tried, but no one has yet had great success in the field.
- It is a thing which I myself and others working within the game world, have kept an eye on for a long time, because through the some time have been talking about, to many different works to make gamingens answer to Netflix. It is, as Google will also now, says Thomas Bense.

According to the spileksperten working for several large manufacturers such as Microsoft and the Playstation also to make a solution for streaming of video games. They are looking all in high degree on what happens in the tv and film world, particularly where Netflix has had great success.
- Google's biggest challenge in relation to it here, it becomes, that it comes to act very much on who has the best offer of the game. And right now, Google has not the rights to any particularly big game, he says.
Microsoft and Playstation have both been a part of the gaming business for a long time, and therefore they have the rights to more big game. Google therefore needs to make itself attractive for game providers, where the Stadia must be a success.
- When we come to a place where this is up and running, and people know it, so it's all about who has the best games. Exactly as we see with the tv and filmstreamingsplatforme right now.
- Therefore, make Google their own spilstudie, and they need, to they make any good games, which guarantees them something exclusive content", says Thomas Bense.
What is the new?
Google's new venture to revolutionize the game world.
But how it differs really from all the consoles and computers, as already exists?
in Order to play a computer game today requires that you either have a physical disk, or to download the game down, for example, on his computer or playstation.
It will Google now off by making a streaming service exactly like Netflix, where for a monthly amount to get access to a selection of games. These games can then open directly, without having to install or download anything.
the Service will function on all the devices, as most of us already have in the home. It will say that you can play his game through his smartphone, laptop or tablet.
and Then switches to just a controller by means of bluetooth, and you're otherwise ready to play.
Some of the most important thing when playing a computer game online, it's that it runs smoothly without any problems with the connection.
- When playing Counter-Strike or Call of Duty, where it is about to come soon of the place and shoot the other, then it should just work.
- There is something else you need to take into account than if you were just watching a movie. When the just stand and loader, two seconds in a movie, then it does nothing, but it will be a disaster, while playing an online game, says spileksperten.
Thomas Bense think, however, that all major manufacturers are already well placed at this point, because they are used to dealing with large amounts of data and have serverkapacitet to drive it.

Thomas Bense is excited at the development of cloud-gaming, because he believes that it may be the future of the game world.
- There are so many big companies such as Google, Microsoft and all sorts of others as well can see that if they get a monthly subscription from users, so it has a big value.
- I think it is super exciting, because it's going to be a serious gamechanger. All of a sudden it is here with the to have physical games or to download the game secondary, says Thomas Bense.
Google has not yet disclosed the price for a subscription to their new service. Thomas Bense expect, however, that the price will be similar as you know from the tv and filmstreaming.
- The important thing is that those who have the coolest library of games, they win the fight in the end, he says.
Google expects to launch Stadia later in the year.
