The service requires a subscription and users may pick any of the available games that Sony added to the service for streaming.

Companies seem convinced the future of gaming will have everyone streaming games to their systems instead of purchasing, downloading and managing them individually.

A key step in bringing Project xCloud to reality is allowing developers to bring their content to the platform.

Starting next year, gamers across consoles, PCs, and mobile devices will be able to access a new service from Microsoft called Project xCloud that will provide access to a library of more than 3,000 games developed for Xbox.

It was Sanchez's first United goal of the season, while Lukaku has netted four strikes in the Premier League this campaign. Journalists don't break stories of this nature unless they're absolutely certain.

Before the public test next year, Microsoft is now testing Project xCloud on phones and tablets internally.

Microsoft says game developers will be able to deploy their games to Project xCloud "with no additional work".

We've architected a new customizable blade that can host the component parts of multiple Xbox One consoles, as well as the associated infrastructure supporting it. The custom blades will be rolled out to data centers across Azure regions over time. To improve latency, Microsoft has researchers working on ways to reduce latency via advances in network topology. Instead, it's created to give Xbox gamers a way to play their games away from their consoles and for those without an Xbox console to enjoy some of the system's games on a variety of platforms.

Project xCloud is already being tested on phones and tablets paired up with Xbox controllers via Bluetooth, although touch input is also available.

But she fired back hours later telling Fox News: "With all due respect, I don't get confused". She has served at the United Nations since the start of Trump's presidency.

Microsoft said it's privately testing Project xCloud on smartphones and tablets now.

Cloud streaming is a technology that is being studied in all corners of the video game world.

Announced via his website's blog, Microsoft Corporate Vice President Kareem Choudhry revealed Project xCloud, the service that's meant to allow gamers to be able to stream games across all Microsoft platforms. When it's ready. Right now it's far from finished and beta testing will begin in 2019. Azure has datacenters in 140 countries, so Microsoft feels it is already in a strong position to roll out the service wide-scale. The current test service is apparently running on 10 megabits per second, pushing the upper limits of 5G Wi-Fi speeds which isn't even really a thing yet for most people.
