Google's leaked gaming controller looks super uncomfortable

The controller has been brought to life through renders by Sarang Sheth at Yanko Design (via techradar), and you can check out the conceptualisation in the gallery below. Specifically, the wings of the controller look too wide compared to the drawings but this is the best look we have at the new hardware. A new patent filed by the company shows off what is expected to be the controller for the company's upcoming gaming service.

First outlined in 2014, the gamepad mostly resembles others on the market, with analog sticks, a D-pad, and the usual outlay of buttons on the front and shoulders.

However, thanks to a now deleted tweet from industry insider Liam Robertson, it's quite likely that Google's keynote could see a console launch with a slew of games. In addition to those functions, there is a Home button, a menu button, a Google button and a microphone button on the controller.

Over the weekend we got a look at a set of Fan made renders of a Google branded gaming controller. The notification may be provided by an audio and/or visual cue on the game controller.

That said, the color scheme modeled after Google's logo (which just so happens to have the same colored button layout as classic Super Famicom controllers) is aesthetically appealing. The game controller, in an implementation, may be utilized to activate one or more host devices (e.g., a television monitor, a tablet, a smartphone, etc.) if the user presses an action button on the controller or accepts the notification.

Well, according to a recent report from The Information, Google has recently stepped up its work on "a subscription-based game streaming service that could work either on Google's Chromecast or possibly a Google-made console".

This year's GDC kicks off March 19th in San Fransisco, CA.

We know it's coming and now we have a little bit more insight into how Google plans to move into the gaming space.
