You’d never guess it from the complete lack of hype but a brand new video game format is due to launch in exactly one month’s time. It’s not a console but it is a platform that plays its own games, that you have to buy separately just like a console or a PC. That format is Stadia and it was meant to be the future of gaming. But it’s pretty obvious that it’s going to be a footnote at best. Google has finally entered the video games business and they’ve half-assed it in spectacular fashion.
