What Google’s Stadia Could Mean For Domain Names


As many of you have learnt that Google is rolling out a new game platform called Stadia (greek term for stadium), and it has acquired the domain name Stadia.com to go along with it and the domain name is redirected to google, and according to google, Stadia is :

a new video game platform, delivering instant access to your favorite games on any type of screen—whether it’s  a TV, laptop, desktop, tablet or mobile phone. Our goal is to make those games available in resolutions up to 4K and 60 frames per second with HDR and surround sound. We’ll be launching later this year in select countries including the U.S., Canada, U.K. and much of Europe.

and it also says that:

 If you watch one of your favorite creators playing Assassin’s Creed Odyssey, simply click the “play now” button.Seconds later, you’ll be running around ancient Greece in your own game/on your own adventure—no downloads, no updates, no patches and no installs.

and since there would be no downloads, no updates, no patches and no intalls, then It will be accessible through web browser, which would be in need of website addresses or domains to achieve that.

I think Google is right on the money here, because 5G is coming and the speed we will enjoy online will be unparalleled to what we have right now, and downloading apps and softwares would no longer make so much sense any more.

well, that’s just my 2 cents, what do you think?
