I never thought it would work so well.
I have played in 3G for hours and I did not have any major issues apart from a little frame rate drop from time to time.
The biggest issue is how heavy it is on your mobile Data plan. Almost 1gb every half hour of play.
Great service but better played at home or where a strong free signal is available.

It works surprisingly well over free wifi like at starbucks and mc donalds. But I generally use it at my home where it is even better.

After watching a bunch of videos, this seems like the best in cloud gaming. MS might just have a winner here.

I must try this out.

I'm very surprised at the low latency and high speed while playing on 5G. Quite impressive.

I think it works pretty good. I was playing Halo 5 MP and Soul Calibur 6 and was surprised how clean and fast it was. Very impressive.

I haven't used my switch for weeks now.
I'm still not sold on series x but definitely am on gamepass ultimate.
Anyone who calls himself a gamer and thinks gamepass ultimate is not a great deal is lying to himself.

Yeah Halo 5 on xCloud looks better than the new Halo at the moment. I was really surprise by that but I'm sure that will change. But you have to be a Game Pass Ultimate subscriber though on Xbox or Windows

It plays great on my work wifi

Tried it on my Chromebook this morning, not perfect, but definitely playable.

It will be interesting to see if all the game pass games come to it. I'm playing FF15 ATM, but don't get as much as I would like as my kids take over the TV with the PS4.

So it would be nice to be able to keep on gaming on my Chromebook whilst they play on the PS4.

I didnt even have gamepass at the time I joined the beta and was able to play many games that were on GP at the time. Its as if the beta was geared towards those games that were available to GP members. I played gears 5 and sea of thieves first on my phone and then I joined GP and continued playing from my X. It was rather neat.

Tried multiple cloud gaming services and xCloud is for me the best experience (even if OnLive was performing very well). Works fine on my old nokia 6.1 (unexpected but pleasant result)
