Microsoft has officially launched its cloud streaming platform Project xCloud in certain countries (at least for now) with Project xCloud now live in the United States, the UK, and Korea.


Right now Microsoft is inviting people into the beta of Project xCloud which will see limited testing of Gears 5, Halo 5: Guardians, Killer Instinct, and Sea of Thieves. Microsoft cloud gaming boss Kareem Choudhry, explains: "Public preview is a critical phase in our multi-year ambition to deliver game streaming globally at the scale and quality of experience that the gaming community deserves and expects".

He continued: "It's time to put Project xCloud to the test in a broader capacity, with a range of gamers, devices, network environments and real-world use-case scenarios".

Beta testers signed up last month, with requirements being an Android-based smartphone or tablet with Android 6.0 (or higher) with Bluetooth 4.0 support, a Microsoft account, and a Bluetooth-capable Xbox One controller.

ABOUT THE AUTHOR - Anthony Garreffa

Anthony is a long time PC enthusiast with a passion of hate for games to be built around consoles. With FPS gaming since the pre-Quake days, where you were insulted if you used a mouse to aim, he has been addicted to gaming and hardware ever since. Working in IT retail for 10 years gave him great experience with high-end, custom-built PCs. His addiction to GPU technology is unwavering, and with next-gen NVIDIA GPUs about to launch alongside 4K 144Hz HDR G-Sync gaming monitors and BFGDs (65-inch 4K 120Hz HDR G-Sync TVs) there has never been a time to be more excited about technology.
