"Ultimately, Project xCloud is about providing gamers - whether they prefer console or PC - new choices in when and where they play, while giving mobile-only players access to worlds, characters and immersive stories they haven't been able to experience before", explains corporate vice president for Gaming Cloud at Microsoft, Kareem Choudhry. Projects such as the GeForce Now NVIDIA and Sony's PlayStation Now available for a long time, and now a similar service Stream Project announced by Google and Microsoft presented their Project xCloud. This move looks to be similarly targeting the platform boundaries we've been locked behind for so long, instead opening up the Xbox library to more devices than the company's dedicated hardware can reach alone.

A service such as Project xCloud will be experiencing latency and visual fidelity problems, but these obstacles are overtaking Microsoft's Azure cloud. Project xCloud is a major leap for the company as it will provide its users with the Xbox experience through various devices such as mobile and tablet devices.

Microsoft officially unveiled its groundbreaking game streaming service, Project xCloud. This could pose a problem, as most games are created to be played using either a controller or a keyboard and mouse config. It'll allow you to either pair a Bluetooth-enabled Xbox One controller or use on-screen touch controls, though obviously the latter isn't the ideal way to play most games. Or do you think Microsoft is jumping the gun just a little bit early with this streaming stuff? Project xCloud isn't available yet, but Microsoft will be sure to release it worldwide very soon. Public trials begin next year so keep an eye out for a beta sign up! With the next PlayStation and Xbox surely coming out in the next year or two, will streaming really take over as Microsoft wants it to?

Currently, the test experience is running at 10 Mbps, though the team are keen to bring this down while still maintaining the same experience for gamers through advances in networking topology, and video encoding and decoding.

With the aim to deliver a high-quality gaming experience across a range of devices would probably result in a number of challenges such as supporting a large network that consists of multiple users, low-latency video streamed on a remote location.
