Console News: Project xCloud


https://www.xbox.com/en-US/xbox-game-streaming/project-xcloud

All the big players are working on a streaming/cloud strategy for the potential future of gaming. Project xCloud is Microsoft's exploration of streaming games to mobile devices. This is separate from their XBox streaming efforts.


Of course you need a relatively fast connection (10Mbs minimum down).

I find the technology efforts fascinating, but I don't believe this will replace downloading full games any time soon. Maybe once Starlink is fully deployed.
