Microsoft officially unveiled xCloud: a game streaming service that lets you stream Xbox games to game consoles, PCs and mobile devices. Starting next year, ordinary gamers can also take part in testing this new service.
This is xCloud from Microsoft
Microsoft has officially unveiled its game streaming service called xCloud. This service should soon work on game consoles, PCs and mobile devices. In a blog post, Kareem Choudry writes that the development of the service requires a multi-year plan and that in 2019 it will be tested with ordinary gamers, to see what the system exactly needs to be able to function on all kinds of different devices. Microsoft has created special hardware for its data centers so that the system can work properly.
That means that the current and future Xbox games will all work with xCloud. The games are streamed to the devices and can be played with wireless Xbox One controllers. There is a creative way to deal with the delay en route, based on advanced network techniques, so that even on a 4g network should be able to be played. The game streaming service from Nvidia shows that it is possible, although not every game can be played as you wish.
