Who needs a console anymore? Gaming is evolving at Google I/O 2012

Who needs a console anymore? Gaming is evolving at Google I/O 2012


If you follow my posts on here or on Twitter, you know that I’m extremely passionate about the evolution of gaming. Since I work as a web developer, I get to check out both sides of gaming. I get to ask questions about how things came to be or what limitations are impeding progress. Additionally, you might know that I have been geeking out on the juicy Google I/O coverage this week. In case you may not know, Google I/O is a big developer conference where Google employees and guest speakers show off the latest and greatest in development. This year, their sandbox hosts a slew of gaming names we all know and love. I was pleasantly surprised to see that something that I have been obsessed with was actually used as a demo piece.

In case you aren’t aware of Gaikai and the effect that they may have on consoles, please check out their official site and my past coverage of when I fell in love with them at CES 2012. Or even this article where Gaikai announced that their games would be available via Facebook.
