It was earlier discovered that Xbox CEO Phil Spencer was testing Microsoft’s Project xCloud game streaming service on his PC, according tomedia reports. Currently, the service only supports iOS and Android clients. Screenshots of the service running on the PC have now been leaked through the Verge website.
The xCloud project will allow regular players to run high-end games on low-power PCs, which will greatly expand the potential audience for PC games. In addition, The Verge reported that the PC version of the Xbox Game Streaming app will also support local Xbox streaming games.
Players will need a Bluetooth game controller, which will start at 720P, but 1080P will soon arrive. In addition, support for the Xbox Game Pass is expected in the future, and the full service is expected to be released this year.
So far, the service has had a good response on mobile devices, offering about 100 games, and users are generally pleased with its performance — especially compared to Google’s Stadia service.
