Now, many gamers discuss the news about the next generation of gaming consoles from Sony and Microsoft. It is clear that while there is no specific information on this subject, but the rumors still circulate. But an interesting nuance in all this may be news from Google. The company plans to turn the browser into a gaming platform, where the game does not need anything, except, indeed, a laptop or PC, plus a web browser, plus the controller.
Already, you can play games like Angry Birds and Plants vs. Zombies in your browser, but all this – as usual, using the keyboard and mouse. And now Google is offering to play games in your browser to use the game controller. All this is planned to be in the new year, in the first quarter. Chrome will support game controllers, plus you can use a camera and microphone. The camera will need to play the game according to the type of those that are available for the Xbox 360 for Kinect. According to Google, the browser is good enough for the game, and not only, in fact, teen, or the same “evil birds”. The developers intend to provide support for normal gaming consoles games. Only the very game console for the game is not necessary, it will replace the browser. Plus, the developers will provide support for the protocol WebRTC, allowing start a video chat in a browser without plug-ins. This same technology can support the gaming services like OnLive. True, Google, as far as we know, on the creation of such services are not working. However, once there is such a possibility, or rather, it appears in the first quarter of next year, possibly for several months and browser-based game service also will appear. All things are possible.
