Walmart Planning To Launch Its Own Cloud Gaming Service

Google has launched a streaming service that allows people to play games over the internet without the need for a console.

Google Stadia is the search giant's latest venture, which lets users play high-end AAA games on a smartphone, tablet, notebook, Chromebook, and an entry-level laptop.

Walmart might be next to jump on the game streaming bandwagon.

Game streaming is a new race to see which company offers the first hit product that catches on with the masses.

It's unknown how far along the development of the service has gone, if at all, but, if we really think about it, it's not that much of a surprise that the retail giant has made a decision to take this step.

Doom Eternal will be among the first games to be launched on Google's Stadia service.

Speaking to us at GDC, Harrison confirmed there will be, "graphical features, scene complexity, polygonal density, shaders, lighting... a lot of visual effects that will make Stadia games look even better". The platform is cloud-based and will run exclusively on streaming, saving users from purchasing consoles or computers. Moreover, the company is expected to launch the service later in 2019 in the U.S., Canada, the United Kingdom and most of Europe.

Keen-eyed gamers who watched Google's announcement of its new Stadia game streaming service on Tuesday will surely have noticed a tribute to historic video game lore. Google has meant to provide 4k and 8k gaming resolution in the near future. It's not just that there are multiple companies working on this, they're also trying different approaches. Dylan Cuthbert, founder Q-Games is also reportedly developing an entire game that will use this new State Share feature.

The only requirement for the Stadia is a high-speed internet connection with low latency.

Stadia is set to release this year, but that's all that's known. When Stadia was announced, I immediately regretted spending almost £900 on a gaming PC when I could potentially play Assassin's Creed: Odyssey on my laptop, which crashes when I try to load anything released after 2010.
