Cloud gaming became such a profitable and worthy business, and it’s not mandatory to be the reincarnation of Einstein to figure out why. You can have the most powerful hardware from the planet on your PC – your machine will still become obsolete sooner or later. But when it comes to cloud gaming platforms, there’s no use to keep investing in hardware components from time to time.
The Xbox Gamescom Livestream revealed that Xbox Cloud Gaming will arrive soon for Xbox consoles, according to pocket-lint.com. Both the next-generation Xbox Series X and S, as well as the older Xbox One, will get the privilege of running the cloud gaming service.
Project xCloud became Xbox Cloud Gaming
Xbox Cloud Gaming has been around for quite a while, although it was initially called Project xCloud. The new moniker became available for a wide series of platforms. And finally, it’s heading to Xbox consoles as well.
The official description is relevant enough:
