There’s a lot of people who think that the future of gaming is in streaming. Google has put a lot of money into developing Stadia, its take on game streaming. While Stadia has not been met with many favourable reactions, Xbox’s take on streaming, Project xCloud, seems to be getting some positive buzz. The system is only in preview at the moment but the team at Microsoft are still gradually adding new gamers to the service as well as more games. The latest titles to be added to the preview are Children of Morta, Dead by Daylight, Fishing Sim World: Pro Tour, and Wreckfest. The announcement was made by Major Nelson on Twitter. You can check out the Tweet below –

This is a pretty good selection of games with something for everyone. Xbox does seem to be handling this rollout pretty well. Personally, I hope they would hurry up and bring it to iOS. However, the general consensus seems to be that it is a pretty good system. It also has a major advantage over Stadia in that you don’t have to buy all of your games again. Project xCloud uses your Xbox game library so any digital games that you own or have access through Game Pass are playable (assuming they’re part of the preview). We’ve spoken before about how this could well be the future of gaming and spell the end of console generations. It’s good to see that Xbox seems to be leading the charge both in terms of implementation, technology, and systems.
