During the recent Xbox Series X games showcase, one thing was apparent, the true Next-Gen Microsoft console is Game Pass. It's a clear and bold strategy by Microsoft to shift focus from the traditional 'one box for all our games' approach to this 'access all of our games from anywhere' subscription base model. One way they are looking to make this transition a success is via their streaming service xCloud, which has finally gotten a final release date and new trailer:
Coming from an article from IGN: Xbox Game Pass Ultimate subscribers will be able to begin streaming select titles to their smartphones and tablets through Project xCloud starting on September 15 at no additional cost.
In a new blog post, Xbox announced the release date for when its xCloud streaming service will be available to Xbox Game Pass Ultimate subscribers. Xbox Game Pass Ultimate is Microsoft’s premier version of the video game subscription service, Game Pass, which includes both console and PC Game Pass libraries, Xbox Live Gold, and now xCloud.
For just $15 a month you get access to both Xbox One & Series X games to play anywhere!
When I first heard of Project xCloud all those E3s ago, I must admit it seriously piqued my interest. With it being married to Game Pass, which essentially allows me to enjoy Next-Gen Xbox titles without the need to buy one, I am now chomping at the bits for its eventual release here in the Caribbean.
Over to you Stadia!
