Xbox boss Phil Spencer has been very talkative on social media lately, and has even been updating fans on current developments within the company. One of the questions posed to Spencer yesterday was in regards to Xbox Cloud Gaming coming to consoles, to which he confirmed it's still on the cards.
When asked if xCloud would be making its way to consoles in the future, Spencer reaffirmed "at some point it will, [but] not yet". This follows on from last year, when he mentioned it was on a "long list of cool things the xCloud team is working on".
The obvious benefit to this is being able to try out games within the service without the need to download the entire file. In the meantime, those who are part of the Xbox Preview Program and have been invited to try out the new Game Pass streaming service on PC will be able to do a sneaky workaround.
According to The Verge's Tom Warren, the service will also work via the new Edge Chromium browser, which is currently in Alpha Skip-Ahead testing. How well it works remains to be seen, but until an internal method is implemented into the system, this could be a cool way of checking it out - once everyone has the requirements necessary.
Xbox Cloud Gaming has been rapidly introducing new titles. The recent Xbox Game Pass announcement has included multiple Fable titles into the service, meaning players can play various entries in the series on a variety of devices. It's a really cool feature, and the quicker it rolls out, the better.
