I was under the impression it was phones, tablets and apparently smart TVs

Could these be the official controllers for xCloud?

I thought Phil said those were old prototypes and that they are just using xbox controllers now

They are mock ups. I'd rather they use those then is use the controller. I like how those look. I just wonder if they are not feasible.

The most cost effective common sense way for them to make xCloud fly is with hardware that people already have. Just sell me a $10 clip for my controller and I’m good to go.

If I'm running a business case on that idea (and I'm just guessing what the costs are on something like that) I'm giving that a big thumbs down.

It's still cheaper than developing a true hand-held. From a portability factor the controller clip on is not the best choice.

I'm really hoping MS has some concrete details to share about what's going to happen this fall. They've been playing way too coy about this thing for too long and I just don't understand it. You've got Phil out there on gamespot pouring cold water over the idea of streaming for "years and years". I don't know - I don't understand what they're doing. Supposedly they don't make any money on hardware.

I'm really excited to not have these giant boxes sitting next to / under my TV's but it doesn't seem like MS is as excited as I am.

I was stunned by the limited nature of that announcement yesterday. I’m really getting frustrated.

I just realized my Scorpio controller is Blu tooth enabled, so I'm good for that. Now to get the adapter to fasten the phone to the controller

Surface Duo announced for end 2020 at todays surface event :

This I think is the Surface phone that finally got made. Dual screen, and I think would be a perfect match for X-cloud. I am excited

Addendum: I think she is playing Forza at the end of the video.

Played a game of Halo 5. I found too much lag, but others commented not bad.

Played a game of Gears 5, ranked, Gnashers only, and was really surprized how well it played. Some input lag but not that bad surprisingly.

Biggest problem will be playing on a 5" screen. So far impressed.

Only 4 games, Halo 5, Gears 5, Sea of thieves and Killer instinct.

I think they are still accepting people to try :https://www.xbox.com/en-US/xbox-game...project-xcloud

NDA primarily states I cannot show, broadcast etc Xcloud in any way.

Android only. I have an Essential phone. Probably US only. Also, need a 5G connection, wifi or data. I was playing on wifi, and it played significantly better when I switched from 2.4 to 5G on my phone. You will need one of the newer Xbox controllers that supports blu tooth 4.0

I'm going to try Killer Instinct tonight.
