SteveOfficial: Project xCloud Review

Welcome to the future of gaming… well that’s what I am going to be talking about in my new blog post that I have got for you now here on SteveOfficial… so let’s delve deeper into the future of gaming

So Microsoft has released a public beta test for Xbox users to play games via the cloud, which means that you won’t need to have an Xbox console to play Xbox games, all you’ll need is a Microsoft account, an Xbox One Controller with Bluetooth connectivity, and an Android Tablet (must be running Android 6.0 and later)

What I really love about this is just how smooth and how nice the games run, I am just in shock and I can’t believe how well the games run from the Android Tablet it’s just really awesome and I can’t believe that what I’m trying out here is simply the future of gaming

I’ve been playing a lot of Forza Motorsport 7 on Project xCloud and you do get the occasional lag from the game but these are areas of improvement on Microsoft’s side of things, but with it being in public beta mode Microsoft users can sign up via to test out Project xCloud, they may have to wait up to at least a couple of months before receiving an email saying they are “part of the xCloud testing process” and from there they can play Xbox games in the cloud by downloading the Xbox Streaming (Preview) app via Google Play Store

I think that this is also ideal for rainy days when you are stuck at home and have nothing to do I find this really entertaining and really awesome there are some games on this app that I have never played before even on my Xbox One console and I can’t wait to try them out via xCloud to see how well they run via the WiFi network

In the photos above you can see all the games that you can play via Project xCloud and I think some of those games will be really cool to play, I mean you have the likes of Forza Horizon 4, Halo The Master Chief Collection, Halo 2, Forza Motorsport 7, Dirt Rally 2.0, WreckFest, Sea Of Thieves and many other games, there is around about 50 games that you can play from xCloud and more games will be added to the test in the future

iPhone and iPad users can also play Project xCloud on their devices now too but the only games that you can play right now is Halo The Master Chief Collection, in order to do that sign up via and make sure when you select the type of device you use when signing up is iOS, download the TeatFlight for iOS app via the App Store, then once you get an email to say that you’re able to play xCloud games on your iOS device, copy the reference code and redeem it via the TestFlight app, click install on the Xbox Game Streaming (Preview) app and then you’ll be able to sign in and play Halo on your iPhone and iPad

So there we go that’s a little glimpse into the future of gaming and even though Microsoft are still focusing on console gaming with their Xbox Series X being released Christmas 2020, who knows because within the next 10 years or so, console streaming could be a thing of the past and we could be looking at game streaming from the cloud… after all Google are already doing that with their cloud game streaming service Google Stadia
