The driving purpose behind Project xCloud has been to enable playing great games anywhere, anytime. From the beginning, Microsoft's aim has been seamless compatibility. MS want to make it as easy as possible for developers to make their games available to all gamers with support for existing games, those currently in development, and future games.



The power of Project xCloud – the seamless compatibility for developers and the new places to play for gamers – comes from Azure datacenters spanning the globe, with hardware that shares a common set of components with our Xbox consoles.

Today you can play three generations of amazing games on Xbox One. That means that Project xCloud has the technical capability to stream more than 3,500 games, without any changes or modifications required by a developer. In other words, developers will be able to dramatically scale their existing games across devices, with no additional development, no additional code base maintenance and no separate updates. When a developer updates the Xbox One version of their title, those updates will also apply to all versions available on Project xCloud without any additional work.

Not for the foreseeable future. Sorry.

Free Remote Play Tests beginning in October

Along with its next-generation Xbox console, Project Scarlett, at this year's Xbox press conference at E3, Microsoft tossed out some snippets about its Project xCloud cloud-gaming service. While we didn't get any pricing, we did find out:

  • It will become available in October 2019
  • Console streaming will be a second aspect of it, letting you sling local Xbox games to another device
  • They had a first public hands-on at the show
The service, which will let you play on devices like phones and tablets by serving them up from more powerful, remote, console-like hardware, has been in testing internally for several months. And because it runs the same game code that's used by its Xbox One console family, as well as a well-developed distribution platform in Xbox Live, can work with the entire 3,500-game Xbox One library as well as the 1,900 titles in development.

Xbox chief Phil Spencer went a little more in-depth Monday on an episode of Inside Xbox, revealing how the new streaming service handles data. "Project xCloud is us putting Xboxes in our datacenters and allowing people to access those," he explained. "We scratched our heads and said 'wait a minute, we have tens of millions of people who already have an Xbox One at home, what if they could turn their local Xbox into their own version of xCloud, so they can stream out of their home?'."

Spencer explained that the Project xCloud features dropping in October are two-fold: You can preview the streaming service that uses Xbox's data centers "so that you can access Xboxes that we have enabled to play games from there" but also, you can turn your own Xbox One into a server, which will allow you to access it from your phone wherever you go. Spencer noted there would be "no charge for that" and both services are previewing this October.
