In his interview with Major Nelson, Phil Spencer also talked about the Xbox Series X Stocks and the Xbox Strategy. When it comes to Xbox strategy, game pass is never far away.
Games library in the cloud
At Xboxygen, we have been following xCloud since its inception. Xbox’s cloud gaming service is currently offered through the Xbox Game Pass Ultimate offer and allows you to play Xbox games on your mobile anywhere in the world as long as you have an adequate internet connection.
The combination between XCloud and Xbox Game Pass has created a unique opportunity for us. This is an easy way for people to try high quality video gaming and high quality video gaming on the console for the first time.
Phil Spencer claims that his crews are seeing more people trying xCloud without even playing on the console or on the front PC. The service will continue to evolve so it will be possible to purchase them soon enough to own the games.
We want to empower people to buy [leurs jeux]. We already talked about it. We want some people to buy their games, play them through the cloud and have the convenience of being connected to their library.
Phil Spencer recalls that XCloud is meant to come into more and more screens. The service is running on Android devices today and we know xCloud is coming to iOS and PC in the spring of this year.
This issue has not yet been explicitly mentioned by Xbox, but we strongly suspect that xCloud and / or Xbox Game Pass will eventually come on TV. If all goes well, the Xbox GamePass app will hit TV by the end of the year. For example, we know that the Xbox is close to Samsung and LG and the new 2021 TVs will be able to ship the Xbox GamePass application locally. Answer in a few months.
