Part of the company’s Project Stream initiative.
You may have heard about Google’s Project Stream, where it’s currently working with Microsoft to bring games through a streaming service. After completing a trial a couple of months ago where lucky users got to play Assassin’s Cred Odyssey for free on Chrome browser, it looks like the company is moving forward by patenting a controller design that will be used for the game streaming service.
This supposed render of the Google’s game controller pretty much resembles a standard console controller which include dual analog sticks with the Google logo in the middle along with a D-pad on the left and action buttons on the right. There’s a dedicated button below the Google logo that is likely to bring up Google Assistant, and the trigger sticks are located on top.
The renders are based on a patent that was seen from a filing by Google and while this doesn’t represent the final form, it does give you an idea as to how Google will design its own controller.
There’s no word yet as to when we can expect Project Stream to become mainstream and seeing as that it’s still on the testing phase it may be a while before we see on our Chrome browsers.
