Details are scarce with Google’s invite having a lineup Gather Around and what seems like a dark corridor leading to the exit. The keynote might be the first official the oft-rumored streaming service from Google that can ship with a console and a controller. Or it might just point to the expansion of the declared and beta tested Project Stream service.
Nevertheless, thanks to some now tweet out of industry insider Liam Robertson, it is quite probable which Google’s keynote could see a console launch with a slew of games. Sitting here, looking at screenshots of unannounced Google console games and debating whether to release them, read the tweet that has been archived on the popular gaming forum ResetEra. Do not need to get copyright promised to hell.

It’ll be intriguing to see how Google plans to monetize such a service. Considering how a bulk of earnings generated on Google Play is through advertising, the chance of Yeti being a superior service is fascinating when moderation of content and curation has not been his greatest strengths in previous endeavors. Nevertheless, this movement can give the video game streaming the shot in the arm that it requires. Provided of course, the business has discovered a way to take care of bandwidth hassles that eventually crop up with each business model for streaming games, including its project flow.
