Google is undoubtedly one of the greatest giants in the tech industry, and it looks like it’s now got its sights set on the gaming market.
Rumblings of a Google games console have been circulating for a while now, and it looks like the official first peek is right around the corner.
Video you'll love from around the web
Google shared the news via Twitter, where it wrote: “Gather around as we unveil Google’s vision for the future of gaming at #GDC19. Join us live 3/19 at 10 a.m. PT.”
The tweet was accompanied with a short video, showing off what appears to be some in-game environments, assumedly from the Google console.

The console is expected to be a streaming-only box, and it’ll be interesting to see how well it’ll perform compared to the likes of the Xbox One and PlayStation 4.

Right now, opinions on the console seem to be divided, with lots of people praising the move while others think it’s an unsustainable product.
I personally don’t think the industry can sustain 4 major consoles. A 3 console ecosystem works well, and I don’t think there’s room for a 4th.
I don’t expect the Google console to move the needle.

How do you feel about the Google console? I guess we’ll have to wait until next week to find out more about Google’s plans.
