Here's Google's Gaming Stream Console Controller For Expected Reveal At GDC

Google's video game controller has (potentially) been revealed early in patent filings Patent Reveals Google's Upcoming Gaming Controller

Highly anticipated: Google is expected to announce its gaming console at the Game Developers Conference on March 19th. A patent filing for "Notifications on game controller" by Google was published by the USPTO at the end of January, and it included technical drawings of a potential controller. This is based on a new patent that revolves around a controller. The only Google-specific detail in the diagrams is the inclusion of a Google Assistant icon on the lower edge of the controller's face, which could be a button or light-up indicator.

It features a rudimentary design of the controller in the patent, which lead to an unofficial mock-up concept that appeared online over the weekend. Little else is known about hardware specifications, but the console has been likened to a "Netflix of games" powered by Chromecast and Project Stream technology. We've got two joysticks, a D-pad, four buttons and buttons on the shoulder of the controller as well.

The Reps Twitter account posted a tweet showing off renders of the controller.

You can play it with either a keyboard and a mouse, or an attached controller, but this patent is the first look we've been given at some potentially Google-branded devices that might accompany the cloud gaming service. The game controller itself has a built-in notification system that can notify a player of various game-related responses (i.e. chat notification, leaderboard changes, etc.). 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. While these renders are not genuine with GDC just a few weeks away we may not have long to wait to find out if it's really coming in this form or another.
