Samsung and Microsoft are joining together to work on a cloud-based game streaming service. Here is how things are going to happen, explained by David S. Park, head of Samsung’s US marketing, as he unveiled Microsoft’s Forza Street game for Galaxy devices.
“This is just the beginning of our gaming partnership with Xbox. Both Samsung and Xbox share a vision for bringing great gaming experiences to mobile players around the world. With our 5G-enabled portfolios and Microsoft’s rich history in gaming, we are working closely together to create a premium cloud-based game streaming experience. You’ll hear more about it later this year.”
Microsoft and Samsung To Collaborate For A Future Game Streaming Platform
We don’t know what their collaboration is going to offer in the future but here is what Kareem Choudhry, Microsoft’s Project xCloud chief, in a statement to The Verge said: “Having partners join us on our journey to delivering high-quality game streaming to players is of the utmost importance. We’ve seen positive feedback from Project xCloud preview participants testing a range of Galaxy devices, and it will only get better as we continue to work closely with Samsung on refining the experience. It’s an exciting time to be working on Project xCloud, and we can’t wait to share more about our work with Samsung later this year.”
We expect their collaboration to be connected to xCloud in some way. All we can do for the moment is to wait for more pieces of information to be released from either side of the companies later this year. Probably at the time when Microsoft to finally launch its xCloud game streaming service. Microsoft’s goal for this year is to release an xCloud that comes with PC streaming and PS4 controller support.
The Beta version of the xCloud looks very promising so far. The game streaming service is gained more than 50 games, and it will shortly expand its boundaries outside of the US, UK, and Korea.
