Report: Google Working on Streaming Platform To Rival PlayStation and Xbox

Published

Google

A new report has emerged, suggesting that Google is working on a game console that could “rival PlayStation and Xbox.”

According to sources close to Kotaku, the rumored console will aim to present itself as a streaming platform alongside a new piece of hardware. Additionally, Google is reportedly planning to bring in developers under the Google name by purchasing development studios, thus officially making the technology giant a contender in the ever-evolving video game industry.

As reported earlier this year by The Information, the new platform has been given the codename “Yeti.”

Google has been subject to a litany of video game-related rumors over recent years, but nothing has yet come to fruition. That said, Kotaku’s Jason Schreier writes that his information has been corroborated by five separate sources, so something may indeed be in the air.

In terms of the potential of the platform, one of Schreier’s sources said “Imagine playing The Witcher 3 within a tab on Google Chrome.” This statement is bold, suggesting that the platform would make quite the impact on the industry if true. The Yeti platform is distinct from, yet related to, the company’s hardware, but no real details of the latter have yet been unearthed.

Telltale Games Catalog to be Removed From GOG Next Week

Telltale

Fans of the late developer Telltale Games should hurry to pick up its games quick, as PC players may not be able to buy the titles for much longer.

Digital retailer GOG has announced that Telltale’s game will be listed from the store’s website come May 27.

The Wolf Among Us, Tales from the Borderlands, and Batman: The Enemy Within are just a few of the titles that will fall victim to the delisting. Tales from the Borderlands specifically was already removed from Steam sometime this week.

Fans of Telltale’s Borderlands spin-off have a sliver of hope however, as 2K says that it is working to bring the title back to digital platforms as soon as it can. A 2K spokesperson confirmed the news to Eurogamer.

“We are working to get Tales from the Borderlands back up on digital storefronts as soon as possible. All prior digital purchases of the game will of course still be honoured and supported.”

There is no word on if the same will happen over at Steam or other digital retailers, but fans should assume the worst. The internet-wide delisting is a result of Telltale’s demise late last year.

Though much of the Telltale catalog will be affected, its most influential title, The Walking Dead, will still be made available through the Epic Games Store.

Those who already own any of the games delisting next week should note that they will still be able to play the games as they please.
