It's especially frustrating when third-party games are taken off the service before you get a chance to play.

Xbox and Microsoft are always looking out for you players. It includes changes for Xbox Game Pass and Alexa voice support. Also, you can now pair your Xbox controller by saying "Alexa, ask Xbox to pair my controller.".

Speaking of Xbox Games Pass, new releases have just been added for July.

Middle-Earth: Shadow of War, My Time at Portia, and Undertale have all recently been added, with Blazing Chrome, Lego City Undercover, Dead Rising 4 and Unavowed dropping on 11th July.

The patents and research don't necessarily mean that we'll see these controllers in time for the xCloud game streaming launch, but Microsoft has been overhauling its research division in recent years to ensure its inventions become reality.

Blazing Chrome will be joined by Lego City Undercover, Dead Rising 4 and Unavowed - although the latter is only available on PC Games Pass and Ultimate.
