Valve might be working on a cloud gaming competitor to Google Stadia

  • Written by Destructoid

An emergent trend in gaming is the rise of cloud-powered game streaming. PlayStation Now has tackled this concept for half a decade, allowing players to stream games to their PS4 and PC. Xbox upped the ante recently with Project xCloud which enables Xbox One games to stream to mobile devices. Google Stadia, which launches in two weeks, hinges its entire ecosystem on leveraging Google's servers to stream video games.

There might be a new competitor. Steam Database, a group that tracks changes to Steam, has found a code update that includes something called Steam Cloud Gaming. Here's the GitHub document that details the new source code. This discovery comes from an upcoming "Steam Cloud Gaming Addendum," which seems to be an updated distribution agreement that Valve will ask partners to sign.
