Xbox Cloud Gaming Launches On Consoles Today, Includes Next-Gen Games On Xbox One

Xbox has announced that Xbox Cloud Gaming is officially available on Xbox One, Xbox Series X and Xbox Series S starting today, with the feature previously being made available for Xbox Insiders a few weeks ago.

This means for subscribers to Xbox Game Pass Ultimate, players in 25 different regions will be able to access the cloud versions of Xbox games via the Game Pass app, allowing them to be streamed rather than downloaded.

"We’ve built it so the experience is fast, easy, and a great way to discover your next favorite game while saving space on your hard drive for the games you plan to play again and again."

And yes, this does mean that next-gen Xbox Series X and Series S games are slowly becoming playable on Xbox One as well, with The Medium, The Riftbreaker and Recompile all available from today. Various other additions such as the popular Microsoft Flight Simulator will arrive on Xbox Cloud Gaming for console in 2022.

"So, boot up your console, look for the cloud icon, and jump into your next favorite game.

This journey to bring Cloud Gaming to more than a billion devices has been a true community effort. We simply wouldn’t be here today without this partnership, thank you."
