Xbox Cloud Gaming with Game Pass Ultimate Launches Today!

The day has finally come that you will be able to play your Xbox games whenever and wherever you want. Maybe you want to play a game on your couch, but watch NFL Sunday on your TV. Or perhaps you decide to play while riding in a taxi on the way to a friends for socially-distanced drinks. Oh 2020… such a strange year, yet so many possibilities with cloud gaming for Xbox!

Starting September 15th, Xbox Game Pass Ultimate members will be able to play more than 150 games from their Android device at no additional cost. Everything from AAA titles like Destiny 2 and Forza Horizon 4, to smaller indie games such as Tell Me Why and Untitled Goose Game.

One of the best benefits to Xbox cloud gaming is being able to pick up where you left off. No longer will you have to pause or start over a great mission because you had to catch the bus for work. And no longer will the long rides to your family home for the holidays be mind-numbingly boring. There is a catch however with all that is great in cloud gaming.

And that catch is data. Data will be the biggest barrier to entry for many people, at least as an enabler for the true “on-the-go service” that Microsoft hopes it will be. With cloud gaming constantly sending information to and from your device, you better have an unlimited data plan or have generous access to WiFi networks.

Additionally, many people (myself included) will not be able to play on day one because they use Apple devices. Now, I believe Microsoft and Apple will eventually come to an agreement, but how long will we have to wait? If I was traveling for work like I was pre-coronavirus, I would almost certainly purchase an Android tablet to play on-the-go. But regardless of my travel tendencies, I don’t plan to change my phone out completely.

Overall, I’m incredibly excited to see how the Xbox cloud gaming experiment will pan out for Microsoft. They really are laying the foundation for something none of us can probably imagine today. Knowing that this is just the start and the service will continually be updated, I can’t wait to see what’s in store in 2021.

Below is a full list of games available to play through the cloud starting Sepetember 15th 2020. Be sure check out our news page for all the latest on Xbox cloud gaming!
