Microsoft’s cloud gaming service, Xbox Cloud Gaming, can be used on both computers and mobile devices. Cloud Gaming, which has been compared to the “Netflix of games” because it offers hundreds of games for one price. will soon expand.
We already knew that the company was working on a Xiaomi TV Stick-like streaming stick to bring the Xbox experience to smart TVs. While the device, which can work completely autonomously and does not need a console, is on the agenda with the code name “Project Hobart”; Microsoft has broken its silence and shared new details.
Xbox Cloud Gaming comes to TVs with ‘Keystone’
A statement came from the relevant authorities. A Microsoft spokesperson told Windows Central that consumers they want to offer a low cost option and they will make the Xbox experience more accessible.
The spokesperson also said that Keystone is under development. He also said that it takes a little longer to be ready for use.
“Our vision for Xbox Cloud Gaming remains unchanged. Our goal is to let people play the games they want on the device and where they want. As we announced last year, Codenamed Keystone, it can be connected to any TV or monitor without the need for a console. we are working on a game streaming device.
We continually evaluate our efforts, review what we’ve learned, and ensure we add value to our customers. We have made the decision to discontinue the current version of the Keystone device. We are focused on a new approach that will allow us to bring Xbox Cloud Gaming to more gamers around the world in the future.
What is the difference with a game console?
To make a short comparison; The Xbox Series X can play games at 8K resolution. It also supports frame rate up to 120 FPS, ray tracing, and variable tracking technologies. But not all users need a high-end system.
The Xbox Cloud Gaming-based streaming device will also come into play at this point. Of course, it will not be a console alternative. However, those who don’t want to pay hefty sums to play games will get what they want from this device.
