Xbox cloud gaming works so well, it could make consoles superfluous

Back in August 2020, I tested Xbox Cloud Gaming on Android for the first time, and proclaimed that it was “the future of gaming — almost.” Now that Xbox Cloud Gaming is available on consoles, that future feels just a little bit closer. Of all the companies currently attempting to make “play any game, anywhere” a reality — Google, Nvidia, Nintendo and more — Microsoft has come the closest. Having tested Xbox Cloud Gaming on an Xbox Series X, I’ve begun to wonder how much longer dedicated consoles will be the centerpieces of gaming setups, rather than just optional components.

Microsoft offers a subscription service called Xbox Game Pass Ultimate ($15 per month), which lets users download more than 400 games to Xbox consoles and/or PCs. Over the past year, Microsoft has expanded this functionality, also allowing users to stream many of those games to Android devices and non-gaming PCs. A few days ago (Nov. 17), Microsoft announced that Xbox Game Pass Ultimate subscribers could now also stream games directly to Xbox consoles.
