Has anyone tried Xcloud?

Forums - Microsoft Discussion - Has anyone tried Xcloud?

I've been thinking about trying Xcloud and not sure how well it works. Any insight from the community will be appreciated.

How could anyone have tried it?



I haven't personally but I think beta invites are going out.



I wish afsik no beta in my country

The ones who tried it on reddit say the service works well, there are some down times, but overall games like Halo 5, gears 5 play great on mobile devices.

I am kinda disappinted to know it is built on Xbox One S hardware. I though MS was building the datacenters based on Scarlett specs.



Does it stream directly from someone's XBOX ONE or the Cloud?

XCloud =/= remote play. XCloud stream the game from their servers, not from your Xbox(remote play feature).



I'm also curious, what we have seem on the forum from official updates or some testers is that it is doing well and lag is very competent. Not sure how trustworthy it is, but they are claiming to work better than PSNow.

Well... I would actually be really surprised they could see a real difference. I mean, I want this to work well obviously as I am using the Microsoft ecosystem primary for gaming and it would be a nice addition but at the end, I firmly believe your internet connection is going to make it work well or not, no matter what tech is behind (PSNow, XCloud or even Stadia).

By all mean, if there is really a difference, won't complain about it but again, I would be surprised.

I pre-ordered Stadia founder edition, hopefully I will receive it soon as I preorderered right away when it was available and I can re-activate my PSNow to try to see a difference, can be fun :)
