Comment: a couple of hours with the Project xCloud for iOS preview shows a lot of promise

Growing up, I was a video game junkie. I’ve played games in all my free time. My first game system was the NES, and the last e I persally owned was the PS2 and the original Xbox. I even worked at EBGames (I still d’t accept the EBGames/GameStop merger). I have good memories of playing Halo at LAN parties, the first time I played Madden line, and be scared to death of Resident Evil 1 when I was in the 6th grade. ce I got married and had children, I just didn’t have the free time I had before. Now that my kids are old enough to play games, I have been following this industry a bit more, and I just spent a few hours with the Microsoft Project xCloud for iOS preview that we wrote yesterday.

When I had access to it, I was expecting it to be e of those beta experiences that have caused the beta but was actually really polite. However, the Project xCloud for iOS is really a beta versi. To play Halo, I have seen csiderable delay (and has been warned about a slowdown of the network), but I was a Wi-Fi 6 cnecti using a gigabit internet cnecti. This slowdown is certainly something that you might attribute to the service in beta. The lag was up and down during the match, and I am proud that I did not finish dead last.

All in all, I’ve had a lot of fun. I have so many memories of my years of college playing Halo with friends. It is amazing to see how quickly the map layouts and weap locatis coming right back at you, despite not having played the game in over a decade.

Some people might think of Microsoft Project xCloud for iOS is a competing service to Apple Arcade, but I d’t think that it is in reality. Apple Arcade is a low-cost service that has, for the most part, including games that you can pick up quickly and get right in. Project xCloud is a way to take the Xbox e experience with you. My children have had a Nintendo Switch last year, and the more I think about this, the more genius it becomes. It can be cnected to your TV, but you can easily take it with you.

With Microsoft Project xCloud, all iOS or Android devices to become actually a mobile versi of your Xbox (ce all games are added). All you need is a Xbox ctroller, and a fast enough internet cnecti. Microsoft is building a Nintendo Switch, such as the experience without having to create and sell a portable csole. They can focus their living room hardware while Apple and Google get to build mobile devices.

All in all, I’ve had a lot of fun. I have so many memories of my years of college playing Halo with friends. It is amazing to see how quickly the map layouts and weap locatis coming right back at you, despite not having played the game in over a decade.

Apple can still sell Apple Arcade games to the people that subscribe to Project xCloud just that people will easily subscribe to Netflix and Apple TV+. Both services offer a different experience and different types of ctent. It will be the same with the Apple Arcade and Project xCloud. The two services offer something unique to players. Especially the Apple Arcade side, the cost is low enough that, even if you play a few hours a mth, it’s worth the cost.

We will be happy to hear your thoughts
