Microsoft putting Xbox in TVs, building its own streaming devices, and exploring new Game Pass sub

Recommended Posts


Ahead of its E3 media briefing on Sunday, Microsoft has made a raft of announcements around Xbox Game Pass and its cloud gaming efforts.


First up, Microsoft said it's working to put Xbox in TVs.

The company is working with TV manufacturers to "embed" the Xbox experience directly into internet-connected televisions with no extra hardware required except a controller.


Related, Xbox said it is building its own streaming devices for cloud gaming "to reach gamers on any TV or monitor without the need for a console at all". Microsoft did not detail these devices, but it sounds like a Chromecast-style dongle could be on the cards.

all you need is any android device hooked up to the tv. Even the fire devices that support the bluetooth controlers are able to do it with the playstore sideloaded. lol,think how much that would p.o. the geforce now users who bought games for the pc,play them on the tv using a shield,then xbox is like "Oh,we can offer all these games for so much a month instead of having to buy them flat out..." ?
