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. But as our sister site TechRadar reports, Google is planning a big reveal event for the 2019 Game Developers Conference next week, so we could be hearing more about Project Stream - and maybe even get a glimpse of this patented controller design - sometime in the very near future.
Those rumours have gone into a bit of a frenzy this week, as a patent revealing a controller was leaked.
These renders were made to match a US Patent and Trademark office submission by Google for a "Game Controller".
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 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.
Tweeters have pointed out the relative size of the small analog sticks to the rest of the game controller and the chunky-looking handles have also been criticized.
It can let you know if a game becomes available, if you have received a notification, leaderboard changes, and if you have a chat request. 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.
Google's Project Yeti will be able stream high-end triple-A games over your internet connection and will apparently be cheaper than a PS4 and Xbox One.
Whatever it is, we'll find out for sure March 19.
