This means that you can expect xCloud to be a more unified experience for your Xbox console and PC.

Basically, this is a pretty handy option because you can try the game before downloading it.

At a press briefing prior to Microsoft’s Xbox E3 event, Xbox boss Phil Spencer talked about the company’s efforts to bring cloud gaming and games to the PC.

“We are the only platform to ship games on PC, cloud and console at the same time,” Spencer said. “Others bring console games to their PCs a few years later, not only pre-purchasing their hardware, but also charging them a second time to play on their PCs.

“[And] Thanks to cloud gaming, we are now able to deliver these amazing AAA quality games to hundreds of millions of under-spec Windows PCs that couldn’t play the hit games we’ve seen before. “

The company is also working with TV makers to integrate the Xbox experience directly into Internet-connected TVs. This allows you to bring your company’s games to more people without the need for a console, as you only need an Xbox controller.

Microsoft also said this week that it wants to release at least one game from its first-party studio to the Xbox Game Pass every three months.
