Microsoft is gearing up for the future with the first xCloud public tests. Here's what you need to know.
Today on Xbox Wire, Microsoft revealed the first hard information about the long-awaited Project xCloud game streaming tests, set to begin sometime in October.
Gamers in the United States, United Kingdom, and South Korea will be the first able to sign up and participate in the test, [URL="https://forums.windowscentral.com/e?link=https%3A%2F%2Fclick.linksynergy.com%2Fdeeplink%3Fid%3DkXQk6%252AivFEQ%26mid%3D24542%26u1%3DUUwpUvbUpU3794348%26murl%3Dhttps%253A%252F%252Fwww.xbox.com%252Fen-US%252Fxbox-game-streaming%253Fskiptag%252522%253D&token=g4XgR402]which you can do over here.[/URL] It sounds as though this preview program is relatively far from being a full product, with limited access, features, and content, as Microsoft commits itself to testing and harvesting data and feedback before the global launch. Microsoft is also not prepared to talk business just yet, declining to explain how Project xCloud cloud game streaming will be monetized, although it's fair to assume it'll be some sort of subscription service, possibly tied to Xbox Live Gold or Xbox Game Pass.
