This is what Google’s video game controller could look like

There are some expectations in regard to Google's upcoming appearance at the Game Developers Conference in San Francisco later this month.

Google has a mysterious announcement to make at GDC 2019, and we're speculating that announcement will regard their rumored Project Yeti console, the hardware that is expected to accompany Google's "Netflix of games" streaming service powered by Chromecast and Project Stream technology. We've got two joysticks, a D-pad, four buttons and buttons on the shoulder of the controller as well.

The controller portion of this platform has apparently leaked, following a recently published patent, revealing what looks to be a gamepad that'll work across multiple devices and platforms.

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. This is based on a new patent that revolves around a controller.

More interesting are the features proposed by Google.

It also remains to be seen if this will at all fit into the company's Project Stream plans.

Thurrott reported on the discovery of the patent application which is for a notification system between the contoller and its console counterpart. There wasn't any need for a custom controller at the time, as mouse-and-keyboard combos, as well as controllers from Microsoft and Sony were supported. It's now in beta testing with just one game available: Assassin's Creed Odyssey.

The company could release a low-priced set-top box similar to an Ouya that plugs into TVs and plays mobile games, select AA titles, and acts as a main conduit for the Project Stream cloud streaming subscription.

It could also nicely round out the company's range of connected gadgets for the home.

OK Google, let's play.
