from The information, “An early iteration of Yeti was designed to work with the Chromecast TV streaming stick, according to a person familiar with the project and another person who was briefed about it. More recently, Google has been testing a hardware gaming console for running the Yeti service, one of the people said. Yeti also includes a hardware controller that’s used to play the games, developed by Google’s hardware team“.


Google’s hiring of Phil Harrison, who held key positions at Sony and Microsoft before joining Google is a longtime video game industry veteran. The major game developers or publishers will support Yeti and to what capacity is unknown at the moment. It is unclear if they would simply port their existing games over to Yeti or make games exclusively for it if they plan to support it. The company has found a way to deal with bandwidth hassles that eventually crop up with every game streaming business model. Google plans to monetize such a service that will be really interesting to see it.
