Xbox has made it abundantly clear that its goal is to make gaming accessible to everyone. With its latest announcement, it’s getting one step closer to fulfilling that goal.
In a June 13 Xbox Wire post, Editor-in-Chief Will Tuttle wrote, “For the millions of people who play on Xbox One consoles today, we are looking forward to sharing more about how we will bring many of these next-gen games, such as Microsoft Flight Simulator, to your console through Xbox Cloud Gaming, just like we do with mobile devices, tablets, and browsers.”
The post’s timing, right after the Xbox & Bethesda Games showcase, was excellent. After all, seeing announcements for games like Starfield, Forza Horizon 5, Psychonauts 2, and S.T.A.L.K.E.R. 2 is bound to drum up excitement for the brand. However, as Tuttle wrote, there are millions of people still playing on Xbox One. It doesn’t help that consoles are incredibly difficult to find at the moment.
However, the post didn’t provide any real information about how streaming on a console will work. The best guess right now is that the Xbox Cloud Gaming app will be available on the Xbox One and allow fans to stream games from there.
Of course, game streaming depends heavily on a reliable high-speed internet connection. Without that, your experience will be subpar.
In the meantime, we have to wait for Xbox to unveil more information on the subject.
