The gaming industry is currently under a revolution or we might just say evolution. With major tech companies like Google, Microsoft, and Sony slowly moving into cloud gaming, cloud gaming is going to be the new trend pretty soon. We have Google, Sony, Microsoft all lined up with their nex-gen consoles, thereby, taking cloud gaming to a whole new level. Microsoft’s xCloud is going to be major player in the cloud gaming market and it is all set to go head-to-head with Playstation 5 and Google Stadia(launches in November). Microsoft is also geared up to unleash its cloud gaming service xCloud as announced during the recent Inside Xbox Livestream. The Xbox Game Streaming app is even available on the Google Play Store. And now, Microsoft is teasing a handheld Project xCloud gaming experience in Surface Duo and it looks extremely satisfying.
During its October event, Microsoft announced the foldable Surface Duo today. Even though Microsoft abstained itself from revealing any specification but the company did showcase a number of features including office, side-by-side browsing and typing, and multi-app multitasking. However, the best part was that the company did manage to squeeze in an Xbox gameplay, thereby, blowing the whistle on its highly anticipated cloud gaming service Project xCloud.
This seems to be a good move by the tech giant, marketing two of its much-awaited services simultaneously. And with the cloud gaming war already here, it will be worth seeing who stands out to be the best.
