  • I am playing on GeForce Now on my laptop without graphics card and feels like next gen is already here. We need more titles on GeForce Now, all developers shall support such futuristic step. I would love to see xCloud also accessible from Windows laptops/desktops not only phones and tablets, as i dont think we have to all buy expensive graphics cards anymore. You don't wait to download, it's instantenous, you dont have to delete another game as your disk is full, because you dont use your disk... Isnt it next gen?

  • I would love is Sony implemented a feature like this again. PS Now used to be available on the PSVita, being able to play God Of War Ascension on multiplayer while at work was awesome. Was such a shame when they removed support for it 😪 Hopefully seeing how popular/accessible Gamepass is will force them to step up the features on PS Now/PS Plus.

  • Stadia is DOA. Xcloud is also still in beta and is still on Xbox One S server blades, which are scheduled to be upgraded to Series X hardware.

  • I'm kinda old. BOOM!!! Just got a new Laptop and the first game I was going to buy is Crusader Kings 3 @ $50. Now I get to see if I'm really interested in gaming or the realization that I just like to watch Rad Brad and top 10 lists from G.Ranx. So this is prefect for me short term, long term maybe not. C.K.3 State of Decay Neon Abyss ect

  • For me I think is great. I’m a father and a gamer, so portability for me is something of great value. I have a Nintendo switch but Nintendo lacks a lot on having mature games on their system like GTA V for instance.

  • Now if PlayStation would do this, they ( PlayStation) have no choice but to do this with the mobile game’s network. I would not mind playing Heavy Rain and The Last of Us ( 2013) on my mobile device. So come on PlayStation. Give us those games.

  • i just finished testing xcloud and ive gotta say... its pretty booty cheeks. Input lag is really bad... i'll hold my thumbstick in any direction and xcloud will still hold it there for seconds even after releasing it. I love the idea of cloud gaming but theres definitely a lot of ironing out that needs to be done before this ever becomes a real thing. Cant wait to see where this goes in the future!

  • Xbox game pass only has 100+ games 🤣 That's crap. I own 510 games on my PS4 account. I don't need game pass ever. Playstation Now offers over 600+ games for streaming on a PC and or your PS4. Xbox and Microsoft doesn't own PC dumbasses. They own the Windows on a PC. Playstation is making it's move on the PC gaming world as well.

  • This seems pretty great honestly. I might even try it out without having a xbox just for the xcloud streaming library once I can stream it on my TV easily because I'm not that interested in squinting at my phone screen at home and I don't really care for "on the go" but if I did I got my Switch. It almost makes me feel a little bad that I'll be going with a PS5 over a xbox series X because they didn't really win me over at all but for people with a xbox it's definitely a sweet thing that warrants the subscription. Btw I'm thinking of buying a xbox series S in like 2 years or something when it's on sale to get in cheap just to check out any xbox exclusive titles they've amassed at that point so when that time comes I'll probably get the subscription if it's economic and lets me play games I want to play anyway for less than buying them normally. *Edit:* Oh yeah, many people don't seem to consider this but Bethesda briefly talked about some streaming technology they're working on a few years back at E3 I believe and I suspect that could be Microsoft's main reason for buying them to improve their own streaming service, not the games or whatever.

  • this could drive the quality of games into non existence. if companies own the hardware and the software we have to take what we get at the price thats available. we have no freedom outside of the experience given. its a budget option but will lead to zero user created content which is where the most fun is enjoyed aka mods.

  • What’s wrong with the Fold 2? I just ordered one but I’m in some weird alpha testing thing for Xbox so I’ve had access to testing game streaming for a few months now. Honestly didn’t even know it wasn’t public. I play it on the Fold with an Xbox elite controller and it’s been working fine. Fold 2 sounds even better too bad there’s like a 6 week wait after ordering.

It like everyone who doesn't have great coverage in their area is like "X company sucks!", and the joke has been that ATT signals suck, but really just think it depends for everyone. I mean, its either _that_ or all wireless cell providers 'suck'. Sorry, I have no stock in Verizon, promise, just a quibble I have 😅

  • I was a beta tester and I really like the way it make you play anywhere. Maybe a little bit like the switch but with some refresh on the screen pretty noticeable. I played so much and let them my feedback because,I think it's the future of gaming and they will be improving with the series X/S. Maybe if you want to play a game on your newly console it will not be mandatory to install a 100gb game to play on a 512gb hard-drive or ssd. Its cool and if you're already paying for ultimate game pass you should at least try it.

  • I wish I could figure out why Xcloud runs like shit for me. I have great internet, always use 5gh connection, and have open NAT and yet it runs so bad. Also no jitter, no packet loss, and super low latency. I just don't get it. But it's unplayable for me. And I've heard from other people like me having the same issues.

  • I miss Onlive. It was so far ahead of its time and worked great. Would have been flawless by now. The best feature was multi view. You could have your game and 3 of your multiplayer buddies screens all streaming in real time to you at once. You could see exactly what was going on for your entire team. It was unreal. Almost no lag. Unfortunately, they thought too much of themselves and ran it into the ground.. :(

    Little_BusterLittle_Buster22 päivää sitten
  • This is great but you cannot actually stream your Xbox to another device. Only the games that are on game pass. That's a feature I'd like to see Microsoft add before I pay for game pass.

  • I would have bought Stadia, no question, had it handled games like Microsoft's Gamepass handles games. A monthly subscription with tons of games to play. I mean Google could have afforded that and yeah, these fairly old games at full price doesn't sit well with me. Because of how games are handled, that's why I'm avoiding this console. I've already got huge investments in Xbox and Switch, I don't see myself starting over with Stadia. XCloud is the overall better planned out program and it is free with Gamepass, that is good. Stadia has been out longer than Xcloud and you guys are forgetting that the Xcloud launch has been a lot better than Stadia's launch, which was a train wreck.

  • I think Xbox is going to be the only successful one out of this streaming thing. Considering it’s basically free for me and anyone else with gamepass. Gamers don’t want stadia it seems probably because it’s google. I will never switch over to pure streaming gaming. Internet goes out, power goes out, weather, multiple people using the WiFi slowing down your service....I’m good man it’s not the future for me I don’t see how it could be for anyone honestly to me gamepass is a much brighter future in gaming

Gamers just won't admit that MICROSOFT is doing more in terms of accessibility than SONY. I live in the Phillipines, money is an issue but XGP ULTIMATE gave me the cheapest way to consume Video games on all my devices. Thank you!

      Steven HannahSteven Hannah15 päivää sitten
    • @JJayJo Psycho The bad news is you'll never own those games and you are still paying for games you'll never own. After a few years you'll pay for many games in full at $60+ and still never own them. That's the problem with it. Sorry I had to explain it

  • Gamepass is awesome. The streaming is okay. They still need to fix that little bit of latency but there almost there! Hopefully when they upgrade the servers to series x console streaming the latency will not be noticeable and we'll get higher resolution streaming. I'm hoping they add streaming to pc so you can play on crappy windows devices.
