It appears Spencer was describing significant news ahead for Microsoft’s Job xCloud. Microsoft is preparing to hold public trials of the service this year, an executive said this month (Stadia is also slated to roll out in 2019). “Their announcement is validation of the course we embarked on 2 years ago,” Spencer told his group. “Today we saw a big tech rival enter the gaming market, and frame the essential active ingredients for success as Material, Community and Cloud.”
The battle is most absolutely on amongst a number of players to become the Netflix of gaming, and Stadia definitely has the opportunity to become a leader in the space. Google is going for 60 frames-per-second latency-free video gaming in 4K resolution with its service, and features such as deep YouTube combination, Google Assistant functions and direct connections in between the controller and Google’s servers puts it in excellent stead. That puts a little pressure on Microsoft to display something special with xCloud at E3 in June, though Spencer seems positive about whatever his team has up its sleeve.
” We have to remain nimble and continue to build with our consumer at the center,” he wrote. “We have the content, community, cloud group and strategy, and as I have actually been saying for a while, it’s all about execution. This is even more true today.”
