Microsoft is expanding its Xbox Cloud Gaming service, bringing it to Xbox consoles during the holiday season.
Xbox Cloud Gaming brings over 100 high-quality games to devices via the cloud. The service is already available on mobile devices, in web browsers and on Windows PCs. Now Microsoft is bringing the service to its namesake: the actual Xbox console.
“Today during today’s Gamescom 2021 Xbox stream we revealed we’re bringing cloud gaming to Xbox Series X|S and Xbox One this holiday, enabling Xbox Game Pass Ultimate members to play 100+ games right from the cloud and discover new games with the click of a button,” writes Jake Rosenberg, Senior Program Manager at Xbox. “It’s a way for console gamers to play some of their favorite games as quickly as possible, jump into games with friends more easily, and try out Xbox Game Pass titles before installing them.”
The announcement is a big win for Xbox customers, and the gaming market in general.
