Here's Google's Gaming Stream Console Controller For Expected Reveal At GDC

Here's Google's Gaming Stream Console Controller For Expected Reveal At GDC”

The patent also details a notification system built into the controller, that could permit a "seamless activation of a game or other application on a host device from a game controller". Given how mmost game controllers lean towards black colors, this Google controller will easily stand out.

Google is set to reveal its new gaming platform at GDC 2019, which may include a games console to compliment its Project Stream game streaming service. You have two analog sticks, four action buttons, a D-pad (or four buttons for each direction), as well as shoulder and trigger buttons.

The company could release a low-priced set-top box similar to an Ouya that plugs into TVs and plays mobile games, select AA titles, and acts as a main conduit for the Project Stream cloud streaming subscription.

Is this our first look at Google's new video game console?

Google's video game controller has (potentially) been revealed early in patent filings

That said, the color scheme modeled after Google's logo (which just so happens to have the same colored button layout as classic Super Famicom controllers) is aesthetically appealing.

Google's controller will feature a dedicated microphone button in addition to a Google home button, indicating potential interaction with the company's voice assistant.

The Reps Twitter account posted a tweet showing off renders of the controller. The notification system could also alert users to changes in player scores, a chat message, or an invitation. Instead of being used with a specific device, the Google controller would be used with several devices and device types - so you could have one controller that worked across a television screen, a PC, a tablet, and a mobile phone.

Google is hosting an event during the Games Developers Conference in San Francisco next week, where it is heavily tipped to unveil its much-rumoured Project Yeti games platform. It won't be long until we learn all there needs to know about Google's entry into the gaming industry.
