One of the reasons why you might want to subscribe to Microsoft’s Xbox Game Pass Ultimate is because it offers up access to Xbox Cloud Gaming (formerly known as Project xCloud). This allows gamers on mobile devices and PC to stream Xbox games onto their devices, providing them with an alternative way of playing console games.
The good news for Xbox gamers is that if you like the idea of being able to stream games, Microsoft has announced that Xbox Cloud Gaming will now be available on the Xbox Series X/S and the Xbox One starting today.
According to Microsoft, “Today you can play Game Pass games from the cloud on your Xbox console. We’re excited that Xbox Cloud Gaming (Beta) is now available on Xbox One and Xbox Series X|S consoles with a Game Pass Ultimate subscription. We are launching in 25 regions with Brazil coming soon. This capability will initially roll out with our November release to a subset of Xbox gamers and scale to all gamers in supported markets over the coming weeks.”
Some of the reasons Microsoft touts that will be beneficial include being able to play games without having to wait for it to download onto your device. This helps gamers save precious storage space in the long run as they won’t have to juggle the games they have stored in their console.
That being said, keep in mind that gamers will be required to have a subscription to Game Pass Ultimate in order to use the streaming feature.
