Starting today, you can play over a dozen Xbox and Xbox 360 games via cloud streaming from Microsoft announced in a blog post. As with other game streams, the benefit is only available to Xbox Game Pass Ultimate members.
Cloud streaming first became available last September a first start list of 170+ games that can be played on an Android device through the Game Pass app. If you have a solid internet (or 5G) connection and a decent mobile controller, it’s actually pretty cool
Although Xbox and Xbox 360 games have been part of the Game Pass library for a while, today is the first time you can stream them to a mobile device. Microsoft says more games are “coming soon”. Right now here is the start list that includes Fable II but unfortunately not the far superior one Fable III
- Banjo kazooie
- Banjo Tooie
- Double Dragon Neon
- Fable II
- Fallout: New Vegas
- Gears of war 2
- Gears of War 3
- Gears of War: Judgment
- Jetpac refueled (Touch controls enabled)
- Perfect dark
- Perfect dark zero
- The Elder Scrolls III: Morrowind
- The Elder Scrolls IV: Oblivion
- Long live piñata (Touch controls enabled)
- Viva Piñata: TIP (Touch controls enabled)
Today’s news is another data point that marks a growing gap between the two levels of the games-on-demand service from Microsoft. For $ 10 a month, you can sign up for Xbox Game Pass, which lets you download and play games from a Netflix-style library.
In the meantime, you can sign up for Xbox Game Pass Ultimate for $ 15 a month, which gives you access to the same library as well as a range of benefits, including built-in Xbox Live Gold membership and access to EA Play. You can also stream games to an Android device. And as of today, that includes what Microsoft calls “retro” games, which later creates a desire to crumble into dust when you find that term includes the following Fable II.
