The Verge: "At its Build developers conference in San Francisco this week, Microsoft is demonstrating Xbox One game streaming to Windows 10 PCs to the public for the first time. I got a chance to try it, and it's as awesome as I had hoped."
Very impressive, there is almost no lag.
Other than being very excited about this, I have no clue what else to say...
I can see people using this like those who have a wii-u do off tv play. I find myself using the gamepad to play mario kart while watching tv downstairs as the kids are racing against me upstairs.
Almost no lag, sure. But are many people really going to use this? I know I never will, I would rather just use my TV.
@thunderburd86 Yea, I know the situation, but I have a PS TV and I stream on the TV from my bedroom. It would be nice if MS implements the streaming the other way around, from the PC to X1. This will be a cool feature.
@gfk now that I would use.
That almost exists, You can stream your phone to your XB1 as shown by Mr Abraiel of Dualshockers. https://www.youtube.com/wat...
@mike I was talking more as this is. The entire interface transfers and allows you to use the XB1 controller, friend's list, etc. If you could stream your PC to your xbox one and interface the controller and friends list, etc that would be awesome. Would really expand the game library for PC and xb1, pretty much any game can be played on the other. As is you CAN stream the video content from your PC to your xbox, it is not really synchronized too well and does not access any type of input method. You could use a controller to the PC, but with the video delay (minimal for videos and mirroring) the input delay is too much For games.
@Nick They're working on that as well so you'll get your wish it's just not a priority
I don't like moving my xbox from room to room when I want to play in the bed room. Soon I will be able to just hook my laptop up to my bedroom tv. GREAT!
@darth, actually, that is pretty awesome, never thought about that.
why would there be any lag when the devices are right next to each other?
Your tech knowledge comes off as a little naive.
no, not at all. You shove a router and the two devices right next to each other, of course it will work well. Nvidia and valve already have similar solutions that work quite well as long as the network connection is strong on both the devices.
Agree, if Valve can do 4k in home streaming without perceivable latency then it's pretty safe to say Microsoft should be able to deliver a good experience as well. Steam streaming's biggest shortcoming at the moment is that you can only stream stereo sound. When they fix that (and they will) you could almost get the top of the line experience on the satellite PC. I hope Microsoft take a good look at getting games streaming independently of applications. It would be great to be able to stream Xbox games to another room while the family can use Amazon Prime or Netflix or whatever.
It has to be coming out soon. My internet is crappy 6 down 312kb upload i will try test this out when it releases i have the most recent up to date win10 dashboard installed. 1080p 60hertz be cool it goes that high? [email protected] I struggle to run Youtube videos at 720p 60 frames why would be different when i am streaming games to another device? Surely streaming will be depend on bandwidth. I be more then happy to me wrong i will find out when i test it.
Your external internet speed provided by your ISP should have no bearing on your internal device-to-device wifi speed. Unless you're using an old router.
i don't think this has anything to do with you broadband speed, but with your lan speed, you have to be connect to your Router, so i'm guessing if you are closer to it, will present less lag than if it's far, and you'll have less lag if you connect via ethernet. is this feature will be available via Internet?
I'm sure that someone will get some tunneling software working you could probably get it to work with a VPN
time for a new router , no ?
It is streaming through your local network and unless you are attempting to do it from your neighbor's house, there shouldn't be any issue as long as your router is fast enough. This is not the same as a service like PS NOW in which you have to connect to a remote server somewhere.
my internet is 3.3 down 150 kb upload....wannna fight?
Mine is rated for 0.5-1.5 down. People still discard buckets of poo into the streets round these parts.
Windows 10 will be a great OS, especially for gamers.
I have been using the Windows 10 developer preview on an old laptop since it released and it's far better than Windows 8.1. The day I can upgrade my main laptop to Windows 10 just can't come soon enough. The ability to stream my Xbox One is just one of many reasons why Windows 10 will be amazing. The best part, it's free for anyone with Windows 7 and above.
I kind of don't see the point as it renders the x1 useless as it streams.
The point of this is to allow you to play your xbox one games on the go by using a laptop.
"allow you to play your xbox one games on the go" Actually, the video at 1:20 mentions that for now it is only possible to play on the local network. He says that you can't stream games for when you go on vacation (which people have videos of them playing half way across the world using the remote play with PS4).
I live with my girlfriend, the amount of times I've been kicked off because she wants to watch TV.. This would solve it!
My wife and kids can watch their daily prime time TV shows in the living room while I get to play Halo 5 in the comfort of my work PC monitor without having to buy a second XB1 or moving it. That my friend is what is great about it.
Anyone know about mouse and keyboard? Would i be able to play bf4 streamed to my pc with m&k? Wishful thinking probably
I noticed the latest Xbox One preview shows up as a Wifi connection now, getting so close!
@immorals Dude that's what I'm saying. If you read the article is States the Xbox can not be used during this time. We'll I guess if you switch to another input it will allow her to watch a cable box or something. I'm looking at this from my little bubble. I only use my x1. I have no cable box or anything. Strictly Xbox.
If it was freesat TV, I'd throw my tablet at her and that'd be solved, and I don't need the Xbox for my virgin box!
I wonder if you can do this from anywhere in the world? If my XBox One is on in California and I'm in Texas with my laptop, can I still stream my XB1 games using the XB1 App on my laptop? Will it still be smooth or will it depend on who's broadband I'm connected to? It's a great idea if you can play those games on the go anywhere.
As stated in the video, you can't do this yet
I'm sure you can get around this... though VPN
It will be later
Currently it's using local network only so no you won't use when traveling. .
Pointless if someone can't use the TV while your streaming to Windows 10. Needs more work.
You can use the TV... Just change the input.
That does somewhat go against the intention of the "input one" xbox Microsoft were trying to sell us. My wife was never going to buy into turning on the XBox to watch TV anyway so it is of little consequence to me, but I can see how it matters for people that bought-in on that. They will probably enable games streaming separately at some point though. Games do apparently have that dedicated OS and dedicated resource, so hopefully it is feasible.
You stupid or what?
This cool can use my Lenovo 2 and 1 and watch tv like ehen the wiiu was in my bedroom. Second screen is a cool feature and Sony,Nintendo and MS got it right.
It's really cool. Personally I need it the other way around. Being able to stream from my Win10 PC to my XBO. There are allot of games I would just relax in the sofa and play with a controller.
Just get a wireless controller (I suggest PS4 controller because of the touchpad) and connect your PC to your TV via HDMI... I game like that since 3 years. Also get one of those wireless keyboards with integrated touchpad. It's a whole new experience :)
Yeah I've been doing that for some period of time. But I need my PC to be in my PC area. And it's to far away from my living room. But I am thinking about routing some ethernet cables in the building. So I can do streaming from Steam to the TV with Steam Link that is coming in August.
Local Network atm, but MS does plan to expand on that. http://www.vg247.com/2015/0...
Sony needs to release remote play on all android devices to compete with this.
SWEET, give me
"Local network only" So pointless unless you setup your own server and then trick it into thinking it's a local network.
With 95% of the Xbox One library already on PC, I'm not real sure what the point of this is. What they need is an app that lets you stream your PC games to the Xbox, that would be far more interesting.
"With 95% of the Xbox One library already on PC" ???? Huh Talking out your a** or just trolling?
Obvious troll is obvious. I Remember you from Neogaf and they banned you because of troll comments like this. Lucky you, you still get one bubble here and troll as much as you like without consequences. Good job mate.
