Microsoft announced today that it has transitioned Xbox Cloud Gaming to Xbox Series X and has dramatically expanded the availability of the service.
“Starting today, Xbox Cloud Gaming is available to all Xbox Game Pass Ultimate members with Windows 10 PCs and Apple phones and tablets, via browser, across 22 countries,” Microsoft vice president Catherine Gluckstein writes. “We’re bringing the Xbox experience directly to the devices you use most.”
As important, Microsoft also revealed that it has fully transitioned its Xbox Cloud Gaming datacenter infrastructure from Xbox One to Xbox Series X.
“Xbox Cloud Gaming is now powered by custom Xbox Series X hardware,” Gluckstein added. “We’ve been upgrading Microsoft datacenters around the globe with the fastest, most powerful Xbox hardware to give you faster load times, improved frame rates, and an experience of a new generation of gaming. To ensure the lowest latency, highest quality experience across the broadest set of devices, we will be streaming at 1080p and up to 60fps. Going forward we’ll continue to innovate and add more features to enhance your cloud gaming experience.”
Looks like it’s time for me to start testing this service again. More soon.
