Google's video game controller has (potentially) been revealed early in patent filings

Google's video game controller has (potentially) been revealed early in patent filings

The patent seems to indicate that the controller may even have a speaker or even a small display, providing "audio and visual cues" for notifications such as chat alerts, and so on. That said, there are two interesting buttons in the middle.

While there isn't anything remarkable with the design, it does show that Google Assistant, or at least voice communication, is built into the controller and it also features your standard two-thumb sticks, four buttons for the right thumb and a D-pad on the left side.

Industry insiders are at fever pitch as the company throws hundreds of millions at a potential new gaming arm that will aim to break up the status quo in console gaming.

This suggests that the controller itself might be the only hardware released by Google and that the Yeti cloud gaming platform would work with other, existing devices - such as Chromecast, Android TV boxes or released as TV apps themselve.

The Reps Twitter account posted a tweet showing off renders of the controller. The controller portion of this platform has apparently leaked, following a recently published patent, revealing what looks to be a gamepad that'll work across multiple devices and platforms. It mostly talks about notifications being received on the controller, possibly conveyed via haptic feedback. Instead of being used with a specific device, the Google controller would be used with several devices and device types - so you could have one controller that worked across a television screen, a PC, a tablet, and a mobile phone. We may soon find out.

Although the controller alone doesn't reveal much about the console, it might act as one of the most important accessories that could act as a catalyst for Google's Project Stream.

"We haven't heard many specifics about Google's video game plans, but what we have heard is that it's a three-pronged approach: 1) Some sort of streaming platform, 2) some sort of hardware, and 3) an attempt to bring game developers under the Google umbrella, whether through aggressive recruiting or even major acquisitions".
