A service such as Project xCloud will be experiencing latency and visual fidelity problems, but these obstacles are overtaking Microsoft's Azure cloud. Projects like xCloud will enable players to play their favorite games on any device with the internet and that can be controlled. 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 system is being tested on mobile devices via touch input and with a Xbox Wireless Controller connected via Bluetooth. Theoretically, game streaming should be possible on very modest hardware, so an expensive gaming PC or console won't be a requirement for AAA titles. It would seem that Microsoft too, would like to jump on the trend, albeit in a different sense than what Nintendo did with the Switch, with their announcement of the xCloud service, which would allow for streaming of Xbox games on PCs', tablets and phones. "Microsoft reckons that they'll be able to take some of the sting out of that work, though, with a "...new, game-specific touch input overlay that provides maximum response in a minimal footprint" in development.
Public test is scheduled for next year. The ultimate goal is to make game streaming available on 4G networks since 5G will roll out globally in the coming future. Indeed, we still have the X018 event on November 10th, which Project xCloud was announced ahead of.
