How to Play Xbox Cloud Games in VR (Oculus Go/Quest)

CG writes: Microsoft released their Xbox Game Pass cloud gaming for anyone with an Xbox Game Pass ultimate subscription which currently has an introductory offer of around £5 per month. You can then stream games from the cloud to your android devices. However, with some tinkering you can also play the games streamed to your VR Headset such as Oculus GO or Oculus Quest.

There's really no point of this. No games will be in VR.

Might as well mention every other headset and how you could play these games in big screen or cinema mode. But still pointless without VR support.

I think you're missing the point. I tried this on the Quest and basically compared to my tiny mobile screen, I can play games on a big screen as you mentioned. Not sure why that's pointless. Maybe it will be when cloud gaming works on laptop or PC so you have a bigger screen.

So, why not mention ALL the headsets that you can do big screen in? And not just the headset made by Facebook that's invested by Microsoft.

Comes across as a puff piece.

I didn't write the article. You're failing to understand that the idea it is with wireless VR devices. Go, Quest and Quest 2 are wireless. Not sure how I would play this on my Index if you care to enlighten me? I can play PC games on my index in big screen in applications like Virtual Desktop, but not Xbox Cloud gaming. I think they are experimenting with it for Windows 10 internally right now.

The idea really is to play Xbox games on a virtual big screen. That means pretty much any VR headset can do it. Wireless or not. Xcloud or not.

When Microsoft announced that you can play Xbox one games on a VR screen, no one cared.
Because no games are in VR.

Seeing as we are the only ones commenting on it, no one cares anyway. The main point of Go and Quest is to play VR games.

Well yeh, it's still niche in the grand scheme hence the lack of interest. As I said, once Xbox Cloud gaming comes to Windows 10 then this discussion becomes moot for the reasons you mentioned (it's 2D and not VR inside the headset). Having said that though. On a personal level I have enjoyed several games inside VR cinema that support 3D conversion. You can do this with software such as VorpX but I digress because this is tethered PCVR not wireless. You might be able to do it with Virtual Desktop though.
