Microsoft looks to take Xbox experience onto mobile

Those developers who designed the more than 3000 games for the Xbox One today and those who will build the other thousands for tomorrow will be granted access across all devices by using the Project xCloud without any extra work.

The Xbox One console is a great device where you can play lots of awesome games such as Halo 5, Forza Horizon 4 and more.

Microsoft is planning a game streaming service, called Project xCloud, which it plans to trial in 2019. It could be a while before we hear more about when we can get our hands on Project xCloud and test it out for ourselves. In the name Project xCloud, their game streaming service aims to provide console-quality games to smart-phone devices, computers, and consoles, public trials of which would be starting in the year 2019. Would you use a controller on your mobile or touchscreen?

Microsoft stated that they are focusing on delivering an unbelievable and value-added experience to the existing Xbox players and on enabling the developers to scale to numerous new players across the devices. Microsoft has also started installing Xbox One hardware in its Azure data centers that spans 54 regions and cover 140 countries. The test runs on mobile phones and tablets paired with an Xbox controller via Bluetooth. An ambition that has given birth to xCloud, which is that the libraries for Xbox and Microsoft to be available on all devices: PC, Xbox, smartphone, tablet. Microsoft is now testing this service and it will be rolled out for pubic trials in 2019. Microsoft is in the process of developing game-specific profiles that will allow mobile devices to input complex controls found on consoles and PC with touch commands only.

"Our goal is to deliver high-quality experiences at the lowest possible bitrate, that work across the widest possible networks, taking into consideration the uniqueness of every device and network", said Choudhry.

Cloud gaming is obviously more of a challenge than streaming audio or video due to its dynamic, rapidly changing nature.

Microsoft themselves seem to be sure about the success of such an endeavour, in spite of the complexities they will inevitably face. Microsoft researchers and developers are working on ways to combat latency, not just though new networking tech but through video codec refinements.
