Google has acquired the dilapidated startup Green Throttle Games. The purpose behind the acquisition is to provide inspiration for its TV set top box.
It’s been a couple of months since Green Throttle Games gave up this earthly existence. But now the for-all-purposes defunct startup has been bought up by Google. Google plans on fighting the TV wars and it wants to use the resources inherent in Green Throttle Games to build its TV set top box.
Green Throttle Games was begun two years ago. The funds collected for its sake amounted to $6 million. In the beginning, it released an Atlas controller. When Google was contacted concerning the merger it refused to divulge any details.
Green Throttle Games had natural rivals like OUYA and PowerA. The game’s console is officially a piece of junk from now on. Also the founders of the game have removed its application from the Android store. The game’s Facebook home page featured complaints from users who were left high and dry.
Google needs all the help it can get. It is such a vast sprawling network and the big bertha of search engines. So the merger with Green Throttle Games will prove auspicious and serendipitous.
Apple is already coming out with its Apple TV set top box. And Google doesn’t want to be left behind. It is a world leader in the Netscape Arts on the same level as Apple and Microsoft. And with its moon-shot philosophy it is clear that Google not only thinks big but aims high.
All is grist for the mill in case of Google. From its balloons which provide Internet facilities in backward areas to the driverless car, Google makes the unachievable arrive and sit on your shoulder. And now it has moved into the TV race that has Apple, Roku and Amazon at loggerheads with other to attract a consumer base.
Google will deconstruct Green Throttle Games and put the technical and practical information to good use. We wish it all the best in its pursuits of technological singularity.
