Microsoft Showed Off Project xCloud Recently and I Want In
The latest episode of Inside Xbox had some cool tidbits. One was the announcement of Halo: The Master Chief Collection coming to PC. Another was a brief demo of Microsoft’s Project xCloud. If you don’t know what xCloud is, but have heard of Google’s Project Stream, you know the basics. xCloud is Microsoft’s idea for game streaming that will let you play your Xbox games wherever you are even if all you have is an Xbox controller and your phone. Kareem Choudhry from Microsoft had this to say:
That’s right, xCloud is not going to replace your consoles. Also, they’re trying to get testing to begin later this year! That sounds incredible and I would be more than happy to give it a test. There are games I really want to play on Xbox, but I haven’t been able to spend the $250 for a new console. You can read more in the official release. Are you excited for Project xCloud?
