Microsoft will next launch a device that lets users stream Xbox cloud games on their TVs, allowing players who want to play Xbox games on the big screen at home but don’t want to spend that much money on an Xbox console. to the joy of the game.
According to Venture Beat, Microsoft will launch a hardware device that can stream Xbox cloud games within the next 12 months. The device is estimated to be like Amazon’s Fire Stick or a tiny piece of hardware like a Roku. When users with Xbox Game Pass Ultimate connect the device to their TV, they can enjoy Xbox’s cloud gaming service while watching additional TV episodes and movies.
And if the user already owns a Samsung smart TV, they can play Xbox cloud games without this new device, because Microsoft is working with Samsung to launch an application for Xbox cloud games on its TVs. The app is also expected to launch within the next year, according to Venture Beat.
In fact, it is not unexpected that Microsoft has launched a new device to make cloud games more convenient for users, because according to the current situation, Microsoft basically aims to let as many users as possible join or come into contact with the Xbox ecosystem, especially Game In the Pass system, no matter how they do it. But at the same time, Microsoft is also investing a lot of resources in the new generation of Xbox consoles, seemingly to express a “console is still the best way to get users to join its Game Pass system.”
In any case, Microsoft’s launch of such a new device is also a good decision, but whether it will be launched in China is another matter.
