When it comes to gaming you can’t ignore Microsoft’s Xbox One. It’s upscaled model is the most powerful console on the market right now, and when it comes to technology it’s hard to out-do a company like Microsoft.
It seems it’s got its sights on a pretty lofty goal though, as Microsoft has said it wants to become the “Netflix of games.”
Project xCloud was announced in October last year, and it aims to bring Xbox One games to PC, mobile phones and consoles regardless of where you are via a streaming subscription service.

The idea is that you’ll be able to connect your Xbox controller to supported devices – like your phone via Bluetooth – to play games on the go. There would also be the option to play more traditionally, using your phone’s touchscreen.
Testing for Project xCloud is set to begin sometime this year.
It’s going to be anything but easy to build up a library of content as diverse and as large as Netflix’s. If anyone can try it though, it’s Microsoft…
Summary: Microsoft is planning on getting gaming accessible to everyone similar to how one watches Netflix on any streaming device, using their new “Project xCloud,” streaming service.
