Earlier this week, Apple announced a new game subscription service just a week after Google’s big Stadia cloud gaming announcement. While both services might feature a similar subscription model – that’s about all they have in common. In terms of ‘what they offer’ and ‘how they offer it’, they couldn’t be further apart. Google’s Stadia is openly available to users, allowing anyone with a Chrome browser to play the game. Google is also offering a gamepad that controls directly to Wi-Fi. On the other hand, Apple Arcade can only be played on iPhones, iPads, Macs and Apple TV devices. Apple Arcade will run games leveraging traditional hardware, allowing you to download a game and play it online or offline depending on your preference.
Two new gaming services have been launched by the Internet behemoths, Apple and Google and both are set to take the users gaming experience to a new high. Read about the difference between Apple Arcade and Google Stadia on Moneycontrol.
