Microsoft unveils new global game-streaming technology

Microsoft Corp. unveiled a new global game-streaming technology, Project xCloud, which will let users play console and Windows PC games on mobile devices and tablets.

"Our vision for the evolution of gaming is similar to music and movies — entertainment should be available on demand and accessible from any screen," Kareem Choudhry, corporate vice president of gaming cloud at Microsoft, said in an official Oct. 8 blog post.

Developers of the more than 3,000 games available on Xbox One, and those developing new games, will be able to offer access to their games across all devices on Project xCloud with no additional work.

The company is already testing the new service and will begin public trials in 2019.

At its Xbox E3 2018 briefing in June, Xbox head Phil Spencer had confirmed that Microsoft's cloud engineers were working on a service that would allow Xbox console-quality games to be streamed on any device, including mobile phones.

The news comes after Alphabet Inc. unit Google LLC teamed up with video game publisher Ubisoft Entertainment SA to test its game-streaming service Project Stream.
