Mircosoft today announced that Xbox Cloud Gaming will be expanding to Japan, Mexico and Brazil. It is expected that the expansion begins in October 1.
Microsoft’s service allows you to remotely play your favorite games on any device, whether it is a smartphone, tablet, PC or laptop. The service launched in the U.S. around this time last year and has only continued to expand since. Xcloud users stream over 100 games from the cloud, including Yakuza: Like a Dragon, Minecraft Dungeons, and Dragon Quest 11 S: Definitive Edition. This service allows you to quickly try games and decide if it is worth your time.
This is not an advertisement for Xbox Cloud Streaming. I enjoy the service but recommend that you check it out yourself. Microsoft is pushing Xbox Cloud Gaming. This shows the publisher’s commitment to making its content accessible wherever gamers can find it. It’s especially important considering the fact that consoles of “next generation” are still hard to find almost a year later. Microsoft may continue to find the service and users could feel that they don’t have to buy the Series X/S console, as they can play older games with the latest software. Case in point, the cloud service is coming to Xbox Consoles this Holiday, letting users play select Xbox Series X games on their Xbox One.
In a recent blog post, Microsoft said, “With the expansion of Xbox Cloud Gaming to gamers in Australia, Brazil, Japan and Mexico, we’re now opening the opportunity for over one billion people in 26 countries across five continents to be able to play Xbox Game Pass games from the cloud on their phones, tablets and PCs. These games run on custom Xbox Series X consoles. Cloud gaming allows for faster loading and higher frame rates.
Microsoft will continue to invest in services such as Xbox Cloud Gaming, Game Pass and Game Pass. This service is a fantastic alternative for users who don’t have a Series X/S. However, Microsoft must continue its efforts to resolve the shortage of Xbox consoles to ensure that all players have access to the most recent tech. It’s fun to play games, so having more options is always a good thing.
