Tim Sweeney, the CEO ofEpic Games, tells Business Insider that the success of "Fortnite" shows that there's no such thing as a "mobile gamer" or a "console gamer" anymore — there's just gamers.  That's a big part of why the company this week launched Epic Online Services, which will let video game developers easily create games that include cross-play across PCs, consoles, and smartphones.  Sweeney says that it's all based on tech that Epic came up with itself for "Fortnite," and indeed, the s...

What latency feels like on Google’s Stadia cloud gaming platform

After peppering Google employees with questions regarding Stadia’s latency, pricing and supported devices to mostly no avail, I got my hands on one of their new controllers and pressed play on the Doom Eternal gameplay they were showing off on a big-screen TV. Things started off pretty ugly. The frame rate dropped to a fast-paced PowerPoint presentation, the resolution dipped between 4K crispness and indecipherable blurriness and latency seemed to be as much as a half-second. As the Google em...

The Three Things Google Stadia Needs to Conquer the Gaming Industry

One of the upsides of opting for a robot dog over the real thing is the ability to buck the whole “old dog, new tricks” adage by way of software updates. As long as the company continues to support such things, that is. Announced earlier this year, Aibo’s first major software update just dropped, bringing with it the ability to double as a (albeit nonthreatening) security dog. T...

Court Tosses Antitrust Claims That Internet Giants Are Biased Against Conservatives–Freedom Watch v. Google

Apologies if I’m not being appropriately empathetic, but I think lawsuits alleging that Internet giants are biased against conservatives are stupid and counterproductive. They are premised on factually unsupportable assertions of bias, and most of these plaintiffs would enthusiastically cheer such bias so long as it worked against minorities or the libs. Further, there is no viable solution to “fix” bias. “Bias” is intrinsic in every media ecology, so it’s impossible to eradicate. The closest “s...
