“This opens the possibility of Cloud-based gaming, which technically “streams” the game to a controller and display,” the GSMArena reported .

The platform is essentially a Cloud-based infrastructure where game developers would be able to design and write games to run directly on the Internet giant’s hardware at data centres.
