Additional tiers of xCloud game streaming could be on the way.
I know amazon is probably working on their own but it would be cool if they added xcloud support to their firestick.
Surprised this isnt on Roku... Definitely not difficult, must have to do with licensing or fees
Amazon actually announced their own. It's called Luna.
They said they didn’t want modified versions of android running xcloud but that’s probably the market they should go after. Android boxes. Shields , firetv. It would be good if u didn’t have to use shitty versions on there. They should just give the go ahead id love to try it on my fire stick.
I want this app available on every Windows, Android, and iOS device. Personally, I have Firestick, but I want to be able to play anywhere that has good internet access. This past generation I bought a console for every TV I have in my home. This next generation I am looking at only buying one or two consoles and streaming with the rest of the TVs. I hope that I can do that. But MS has to add to GamePass a benefit that if you own a game you can stream it as well.
but you can stream games you own right now. microsoft separated that feature from xcloud and is now a separate app....you can sideload it on your firestick and take it anywhere.
@optimus I agree but having it conveniently in the store is much nicer then sideloading.
This is so cool. When xcloud will have every gamepass available, there won't be any need for me to buy an Xbox at all. Thanx Microsoft. 👏👏👏
That’s the part I don’t like they are thinking about tiers of gamepass doesn’t sound like a promising feature or future but that’s just my opinion.
Yes, streaming is the future.
true, the distant future. we're not ready for mainstream game-streaming yet
Maybe once 5G is everywhere and more people have 1 Gbps internet but right now cloud streaming is just for people who either can't afford a full console or as a secondary way to play.
You will still be buying into the MS/Xbox ecosystem....
Not if they want you to buy their xbox sx. Now it just make lesser and lesser sense to buy an xbox at all. Xbox will soon official closed down it console and turn to a service in the future.
For you maybe. But for core gamers cloud gaming is only a supplement not the primary way to game.
I would definitely get this if it was real and fairly priced.
