Microsoft reveals Project xCloud games streaming service - Industry - News
Today, Im excited to share with you one of our key projects that will take us on an accelerated journey to that future world: Project xCloud, said Kareem Choudhry, Corporate VP, Gaming Cloud, Microsoft.
"Microsoft is planning to begin public trials on the streaming service sometime in 2019 so they can learn and scale with different volumes and locations". This move looks to be similarly targeting the platform boundaries we've been locked behind for so long, instead opening up the Xbox library to more devices than the company's dedicated hardware can reach alone. Microsoft Project xCloudIn March 2018, Microsoft confirmed that it was developing a cloud gaming service.
'Ultimately, Project xCloud is about providing gamers - whether they prefer console or PC - new choices in when and where they play, while giving mobile-only players access to worlds, characters and immersive stories they haven't been able to experience before.
Microsoft is now testing xCloud on mobile phones and tablets. In the name Project xCloud, their game streaming service aims to provide console-quality games to smart-phone devices, computers, and consoles, public trials of which would be starting in the year 2019. A new customisable blade hosts the component parts of multiple Xbox One consoles, as well as its associated infrastructure.
Currently, this project is still being tested on some devices, connected via Bluetooth to an Xbox Wireless Controller, which also allow you to play via touch input. Would you use a controller on your mobile or touchscreen? Developers will have to do minimal work to enable those games to run via Microsoft's xCloud Project. Microsoft is now testing this service and it will be rolled out for pubic trials in 2019. The team at Microsoft Research wants to fight the latency problems which are an enemy to game streaming by implementing enhancements in networking topology and introducing new methods of video encoding and decoding.
AMD works closely with both Microsoft and Sony on their respective Xbox One and Playstation consoles.
"I may think that some saying the future of gaming is 100% streaming are looking to reclaim the % royalty now paid on content purchased via digital storefronts more than delivering an improved consumer experience".
