    Wait, the preview is open to all? As in we can register from other parts of the world? If so I missed that huge news...
    Doesn’t look like this is the case, so what does “opening up registrations to all” mean exactly? I’m trying my best to wait patiently while so many other people seem to be able to enjoy this already...
    Think it’s just open to all ranks of the preview program. Preview program members who are in a higher tier get stuff before those in a lower one, so they’re letting everyone try out xCloud now.
    Apologies, guys. facepalmThat was a mistake on my part, it was supposed to be a sentence about the South Korean programme being opened to all. Article updated.

    No worries, the wait continues for the rest of the world :(

    Question is what is the best phone to use with XCLOUD? Trying to buy one but hate to buy the wrong one and it won't work.
    If all pork chops were perfect, we wouldn't have Hot Dogs!!!

    Wow! I am really impressed with the system as a whole, but Master Chief!! Shooting games generally have been too laggy for me (4G, cellular) but World War Z and Vermintide are ok, just feels like online lag as you would expect it. I'll have to give MCC a go, 5 was laggy as hell 😂

    I use a Huawei P Smart and it runs pretty perfectly. Will set you back maybe £150; I paid £200 but that was months ago, before the next wave came out

    Once xCloud really kicks off 2-Player-boosting will be a thing from the past, everybody will „double-box“ with their phone. Hell, even having more than one phone is becoming more and more common.

    Xcloud is no joke. Got a $5 VR headset from Wallyworld and it makes my 4" phone look like a 60" TV been pretty amazing playing during my lunchbreaks. I just gotta test wearing it out in public to see if I get my arse kicked for looking so swag laugh

    where would you get the phone attachment shown in the video? do achievements still unlock as normal or not until its out of the preview program?
  • Posted on 22 January 20 at 14:07Permalink
    They should create some handheld for this, walking around in public with a controller attached to your phone looks goofy af imo

    We've had Streaming to Console via PC for years. Open your Xbox Companion App on your Windows 10 PC and look for the console streaming button.

    Cheevos still unlock. It works with several Bluetooth controllers as well you don't need just your Xbox one controller.

    Once 5G properly comes in and they get iphones added i'm sold. Would be awesome to be able to do an hour of gaming every lunchtime.
    that's a relief I would definitely like to play the games with my old xbox buddies who all jumped ship to pc at the start of the generation.

    As in streaming/mirroring from mobile to pc/tv. I believe(hope) they are working on that.
