Google introduced its streaming gaming platform at the 2019 Game Developers Conference on Tuesday

Google launched a new gaming platform at the Game Developers Conference (GDC) in San Francisco earlier today. The company has moved into the gaming industry with its new gaming platform called Stadia.

That platform allows everybody who are online to play the game without any gaming controller. There are more than 200 million people watching game-related content on YouTube and Stadia makes many of those games playable with just a press of a button.

It is Google`s global network of data centres and the combination with YouTube that makes this cloud gaming possible. Their goal is to make games available at high-resolution and 60 frames per second with surround sound.

Google CEO Sundar Pichai said in a speech earlier today that Stadia is a platform for everyone. He said Googles ambitions is to stream games to all types of devices which means all the games will be streamable across laptops, TVs, desktops, phones and tablets.

Its all in the cloud so you dont have to download or install any of the games. Stadia is launched alongside a new controller called Stadia Controller that will power the game streaming service. The only thing you have to do is to connect it directly through Wi-Fi to link it to a game session in the cloud.

Google will build a custom GPU for its data centers with help from its partner AMD. That chip will deliver 10,7 teraflops of power and that is more than the 4,2 teraflops of the PS4 Pro and the 6 teraflops of power on the Xbox One X.

The first game to be launched by Google`s Stadia will be Doom Eternal. The date is not clear yet, but it will be available on PC, Switch, Xbox One, PS4 and Nintendo. Stadia will also embrace full cross-platform play, so developers can enable cross-platform multiplayer and game saves and progression.

More than 50 billion hours of gaming content was watched on YouTube during 2018. Maybe that number will increase in 2019?

Google will earn billions on Pokèmon`s success

Google is expected to report earnings on Thursday 28, 2016, after market close. The report will be for the fiscal Quarter ending Jun 2016. The Google stock has skyrocketed since June this year, and this company never stop to impress.

A couple of days ago we saw Apple go straight up after their earnings report. It is forecasted that Apple could see $3 billion in revenue over the next one to two years generated exclusively by Pokèmon Go.

So is it for Google.

The success of Pokèmon seems to give a huge bonus for both Apple and Google. Google Play are the base for any successful games running on Google`s platform, and so is it for the App Store at Apple.

The huge difference between Apple and Google are their system like iPhone and Android, but the amount of money consumers are spending on both platforms will benefit them both.

Nintendo jumped from 15,000 (TYO: 7974) in June to 32,000 on 19 July this year on their success Pokèmon Go. But it peaked at about 32,000. It plunged 14% yesterday on bad results. Earnings of $0,65 per share from a year ago plunge to a net loss of $1,93 per share.

Nintendo`s Wii U system also fell over 50% YoY. This is why Nintendo is going down and Google up.

Keep in mind that Nintendo is not the producer of the Pokèmon go app. Nor do they sell it.

The Pokèmon Company is a joint venture between Nintendo and two other Japanese companies, and they receives license fees from Pokèmon Go`s in-game purchases. Most of all these fees goes to former Google subsidiary Niantic Labs.

It`s funny when games like this has huge success. They will all profit from it, but for how long will the trend continue? Once it is over, it will drop like a stone.

We all know the story of fresh games like Mario, Zelda and Donkey Kong, and we also know that this is not the end of the gaming era. Nintendo are about to finish its next-generation video games console, code-named Nintendo NX.

Maybe Google will profit from that to.

EPS forecast for the quarter is 6,47 compared to $4,93 at the same time last year.
