You can stream games to your console with an Xbox Game Pass Ultimate subscription
Many of us are still unsure at best when it comes to cloud-based streaming, but with the right price and the right circumstances, the convenience factor can lend itself to some potentially great experiences. Xbox Cloud Gaming is already here for me simply because of its ease of use and inclusion in Xbox Game Pass Ultimate. After letting gamers stream hundreds of Xbox games to a PC or phone, Microsoft opened up the feature on Xbox One and Xbox Series X / S. If you are already a paid subscriber, cloud streaming comes at no additional cost.
Xbox Cloud Gaming (Beta) service launches in 25 regions, with Brazil to follow.
“This capability will initially be rolled out with our November release to a subset of Xbox players and will expand to all players in supported markets over the next few weeks,” according to Catherine Gluckstein, vice president and chief product officer of Xbox Cloud Gaming.
Besides the added benefit of saving time jumping into a game you’re unsure of without needing to download and fully install it, cloud-based games will be a chance for Xbox One owners to play. to an otherwise inaccessible Xbox Series X. / S exclusive on their aging console. At present, The way, Recompile, and The fault breaker fall into this category, and the team says that Microsoft Flight Simulator will allow this “next generation on last generation” cloud streaming at the beginning of 2022. Other titles of the X / S series only will also join the cloud library.
Seeing is believing with this stuff, so what’s actually streamable? You can browse the list of cloud games this way (and this is also the link to play games directly in your browser).
Even though you had bad experiences with games streaming before, I still think Xbox Cloud Gaming, in particular, is worth a visit these days. It would be nice if people could briefly test it out in their specific tech setup before committing to a Game Pass Ultimate membership. That said, this is still a beta and there is a lot of room for improvement.
Xbox Cloud Gaming won’t be my primary way to play games anytime soon, but I can’t underestimate how useful it can be – with a good connection – for checking out games or titles that are hogging storage. about to play. It pairs so well with Game Pass.
Just look for the little cloud icon on the game cover.
