I told it long ago, Google will buy exclusives left and right, games, ip and industry talent.
Console fanboys must be prepared for what will come.

If they scoop up Amy, then that’s a good get.

Honestly, Google should be funding known names in the industry and go wild with projects to turn heads.

You mean they will probably moneyhat 3rd party games and that will hurt the whole industry not one platform?
Not to mention their supreme lack of ethics and complete ineptitude at dealing with real issues actually damaging the industry as a whole before they just give up and flee.

If it’s a cheap streaming console, fine by me. If this thing is a full blown retail competitor that takes exclusives, I’m not gonna enjoy that.

I'm surprised that people aren't against Google as much as they are against the Epic Store, when they could be several times worse

What lack of ethics? You talking about them spying on users and selling data?

We can hope they will fund new games and dont just go full EGS on us.

The best case for the industry is that Google fails at home gaming and fails fast before they can do a lot of collateral damage.

I'm still holding onto my prediction this is just a streaming service + some little local device. But they are definitely going harder on this than I anticipated.

They must really think they've got the Netflix of Video Games and can win mainstream adoption of it here and now. Which would be exciting if true.

Data brokering, unwillingness to clamp down on extremism preemptively or effectively, unfair competiton and business practices, treatment of "contractor" employees, literally removing their "don't be evil slogan", cooperation with despotic, murderous, oppressive, etc regimes on censorship and shit like wife tracking apps.


Etc etc etc.


So yeah, Google can get fucked and no one should really be rooting for a gigantic tech corporation to brute force their way into the industry.

I don't want to buy a Google console, but if it gets a new Legacy of Kain, then I have no choice.

I still say they are just going to announce some Developer partnerships to use Google Software for development, and maybe a chrome based streaming service.

No Console, No First Party Game Studios.

Lets see if I have egg on my face.

WELL I'd assume this is just a casual panel, but if there was some kind of Legacy of Kain remaster (or better yet, remake) in the works, I would scream, "FINALLY!" lol, whatever Google has to do with it. Who even owns the IP again??

Everyone should definitely get their hopes way up for the announcement of new AAA games, even though GDC has never really been the place for such reveals.
