Of course we will have variety. Now the temporary "fashion" is a game streaming platform that allows users to enjoy triple A titles with high graphics without having the hardware needed to make it work. Kind of rent with a monthly payment, of course.
In any case, the variety is great, and given the problems they have with both Stadia and GeForce NOW, Microsoft can take a good look at it and, even if it comes later, take advantage of the opportunity.
What can we expect from Microsoft xCloud?
In some countries, Microsoft has already enabled xCloud test mode, which Xbox One owners can do streaming directly from your console to your Android smartphone or tablet
This makes us think that Microsoft is just running a service like the already existing PS4 game and the Xbox Console streaming they used to have but are more inclined to mobile phones, but the reality is likely to be very different, as we noted earlier in the goal to compete with GeForce now NVIDIA and Google's Stadia, which provide games library play without its resources
XCloud, GeForce NOW or Stadia, many options
As we originally expected, Microsoft is coming after a competition with this service, but that doesn't have to be a bad thing because it will help them learn from competition issues so you don't have to commit to their system. For example, GeForce NOW is growing shorter by its own catalog games (You know that activation – Blizzard has canceled the rest of its catalog, and Bethesda did the same leaving Wolfenstein Youngblood alone), and Stadia's main problem great latency
If Microsoft takes a good account of these issues and offers a complete catalog from the start (currently in the first phase they offer Tekken 7, Devil May Cry 5, Gears 5, Halo: The Master Chief Collection and Depiniy 2 among others) and can run at low latency , they could take the cat to the water and leave both Google and NVIDIA proud.
Of course, by the time Microsoft launched this Project xCloud on the market with its final version, both NVIDIA and Google would have already corrected their mistakes, so there would be competition that, ultimately, would benefit us as consumers.
XCloud, GeForce NOW or Stadia, do you intend to use any of these services? Tell us in the comments.
