Xbox head Phil Spencer hints at xCloud streaming stick


Xbox head Phil Spencer has hinted at the possibility of an xCloud streaming stick for those who want to game on a TV without an Xbox console.

Spencer said:
I think you’re going to see lower-priced hardware as part of our ecosystem when you think about streaming sticks and other things that somebody might want to just go plug into their TV and go play via xCloud.

You could imagine us even having something that we just included in the Game Pass subscription that gave you an ability to stream xCloud games to your television and buying the controller.

Google Stadia and Chromecast Ultra dongle, or Amazon with its upcoming Luna service offer similar model.

Microsoft hasn’t confirmed an upcoming xCloud streaming stick as yet, but we’ll keep you posted as we learn more. 10 Xbox titles have been confirmed to offer touch-based controls while being streamed from xCloud to a mobile device.

Would love for something like this to happen especially when Flight Simulator eventually becomes available for us to stream
