For the last couple of days I’ve been trying out Microsoft’s Project xCloud game streaming service which is currently in preview. You can sign up to try it out yourself here. To get straight to it, the service has worked well for me. There have been some audio glitches, and in some situations - like scrolling around a world map, compression artifacts are very visible, but none of these issues have persisted.
Time for a fun post. As a Xbox and PC gamer, I wanted to check out whether the ‘Play Anywhere’ feature worked as well I’d imagined and hoped. I’m glad to say it did, but here’s a short video taking a look at what the experience is like for a first time user. If you’d like to contact me, please leave a comment, send me a tweet or DM, or you can join my Discord server.
