Microsoft Project xCloud

Microsoft plans to draw on the cloud compute power of its Azure platform so video gamers can stream and access content on any device through the launch of its Project xCloud initiative. More than 3,000 games are available on the Xbox One today, and Microsoft is planning to bring even more games to the new project.

Microsoft has promised to blow apart gaming restrictions with the announcement of its streaming service, Project xCloud.

Microsoft stated that they are focusing on delivering an fantastic and value-added experience to the existing Xbox players and on enabling the developers to scale to numerous new players across the devices.

Microsoft has finally announced details of its cloud-powered streaming technology, now called Project xCloud, which has been in the works for a while now. This could pose a problem, as most games are created to be played using either a controller or a keyboard and mouse config. Users will be able to play games either using a paired Xbox controller or a custom touch overlay that "provides maximum response in a minimal footprint for players who choose to play without a controller".

"I may think that some saying the future of gaming is 100% streaming are looking to reclaim the % royalty now paid on content purchased via digital storefronts more than delivering an improved consumer experience".

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.
