    The biggest restriction on Xbox Cloud Gaming right now is ironically its biggest strength: Xbox Game Pass.
    A few months ago, Microsoft revealed that it had completed a wide-reaching upgrade for its Xbox Cloud Gaming service, moving the server infrastructure from older Xbox One S hardware to the current-generation Xbox Series X. The boost in GPU power for video encoding, coupled with rapid NVME SSD speeds, has vastly improved Microsoft's cloud gaming offerings across the board. It's so good, in fact, that this past summer, I think I've spent more time in the cloud than on a traditional console.
    However, as I spend more time in the Xbox Game Pass-backed cloud gaming platform, I've found one glaring weakness that didn't previously affect me – you can't buy cloud games to own.
    Xbox Cloud Gaming is still technically in beta, and this feature may well be in the roadmap. Still, moving forward, I don't think Xbox Game Pass alone is enough to take it fully mainstream.
