Let the cloud games begin: Amazon plans to roll out its own game service by next year to match Google & # 39; s Stages, reports said
- Amazon is said to unveil its new game service next year
- The service competes with Google & # 39; s Stages that was rolled out this month
- Microsoft and Sony also have plans to participate in the race
Amazon is reportedly throwing its hat into the cloud gaming ring by 2020 in an effort to challenge competitors such as Google.
In a report from CNET, the outlet confirmed rumors of The Information published in January and provided evidence of the initiative through vacancies for a & # 39; new initiative & # 39; within the cloud computing branch of Amazon.
CNET reports that Amazon also plans to integrate its new service with Twitch, the Amazon platform that allows gamers to stream themselves while playing their respective games.

In a separate vacancy looking for a & # 39; Lead Product Leader & # 39 ;, The Verge also reports that the position will be for a & # 39; New AWS Gaming Initiative & # 39 ;.
& # 39; We believe that the evolution that started with arcade communities a quarter to one, which grew into today's live streams and e-sports, will continue into a future where everyone is a gamer and every gamer can create, compete, collaborate and connect with others on a large scale & # 39 ;, the company writes in the description.
The recently launched Stadia service from Google is not the only competition for Amazon at the launch.
Both Microsoft and Sony, two of the biggest names in more traditional platform games, are also preparing to release their own cloud gaming services. XCloud from Microsoft is currently in the beta phase, where early users can play a total of 50 games.
Google recently rolled out Stadia, the first ever cloud gaming service to receive mixed reviews
Microsoft and Sony also worked together in a surprising turn to help develop cloud gaming technology and compete with Google and Amazon.
Although Stadia from Google is already experiencing problems with the rollout this week, with some customers not receiving their hardware in time for the launch of Stadia, Amazon can do better.
Amazon already has a powerful cloud server company and, as noted by The Verge, owner of Twitch, which would give the company valuable insight into which games customers like to play.
WHAT IS AMAZON WEBSERVICE?
AWS is a cloud computing service that gives customers access to databases, storage and servers.
AWS owns and manages the hardware needed to deliver these services.
Customers have access to what they need through a web application via AWS.
Amazon's cloud computing option allows users to pay for the resources they need on the road – meaning they don't have to buy servers that may not even be used securely.
Moreover, the service offers developers access to exactly the infrastructure capacity they need, so that they have not bought too much or too little.
The & # 39; AWS Secret Region & # 39; is a subset with the ability to allow the 17 intelligence services to host, analyze and execute applications on government data classified at the secret level.
The service has an air gap – or is closed – from the rest of the internet.
