Microsoft Announces Xbox Game Streaming Service

Microsoft's Project xCloud Will Let You Play All Your Games on All Your Platforms

You know of it as "Scarlet".

Now You: Is game streaming the next big thing after console gaming? This is also likely why Microsoft acquired PlayFab, a company that specialized Gaming as a service or GaaS, earlier in the year. There's also support for 4G and 5G networks-when the latter rolls out.

I'm glad to see that it looks like a physical controller is required.

Nintendo uses streaming as well to stream games to the Nintendo Switch.

The leak seems true enough but techies will hope that they aren't, especially the ones with respect to the design of the device. The tech giant has confirmed to the worldwide media that we wouldn't be seeing any new smartphone watch on the sets tomorrow.


The service will compete with Google's "Project Stream", a game streaming service that is being tested by the Alphabet Inc unit in partnership with game publisher Ubisoft. That time has now come and Project xCloud is official.

'Currently, the test experience is running at 10 megabits per second. But the company started testing the cloud gaming service today across mobile, console and PC in conjunction with a Bluetooth Xbox controller. You can be sure that Microsoft isn't far behind - if they're behind at all.

Microsoft says they are working on new tech to help combat issues of high latency and quality drops. The service is powered by specially developed blade servers that the company is now testing in its Azure data center in Quincy, Washington. These can, in turn, be deployed into a data center, and power Project xCloud. The press release definitely makes it seem like the service will scale up and down depending on the device being used.

You can check a new video below introducing the service. Our vision for the evolution of gaming is similar to music and movies.

"The way they really tortured him and his family, I thought it was a disgrace", Trump said. Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg, who joined the court in 1993, is 85, and Stephen G.


According to Microsoft, internal testing of Project xCloud is happening now, with public trials coming in 2019.

You can find out more about the work being done on Project xCloud by checking out the full write-up on the Microsoft blog. It is created to allow users to stream Xbox games on consoles, PCs, and mobile devices.

Microsoft has announced its new game-streaming service "Project xCloud" which will let Xbox players stream straight to other devices including phones and tablets.

Scaling and building out Project xCloud is a multi-year journey for us.

Latency is obviously a big deal too, and while Microsoft didn't really delve into the specifics of how it will solve that problem, it did say that its tests are now running at 10 Mbps, with the possibility of far greater speeds and lower latency once 5G begins rolling out on a large scale.
