Android Gaming Service Could Have the Following Problems: Hacking, Bad Gamers, Too Much Device Variety
This week we got an interesting leak that talked about a possible gaming service coming from Google. It was spotted in the source code of a companion app for Google Glass and it may mean that Google is preparing a rival for Xbox Live and PSN. But what will be the hurdles to overcome?
Those problems include the behaviour of some gamers (not all), swearing, doing rage quits or harassing people. Then comes the hacking and cheating and maybe entire takedowns of the network, as it happened to PSN years ago. Another problem would be connecting so many varied devices with varied specifications to the same system and offering a similar experience.
PSN works on the PS3, PS Vita and only a few devices of the Sony family, while Google would have to cover the entire array of tablets and smartphones out there. The good thing here would be that Google may tie your Google+ account to the gaming service, so it’s less likely you’ll swear when your close friends in the circles are watching. Overall, this sounds like a good idea, but only if done right.
