Microsoft Project xCloud will arrive in October and offer a version that turns your Xbox One into a local streaming server

Little has Microsoft spoken in this E3 2019 about Project xCloud, its proposed game in the cloud. It's strange considering that Google recently presented its service Stadia, but instead of giving us details of price or catalog has advanced that it will arrive in October 2019.

It did reveal an additional surprise: the so-called Console Streaming will allow us to turn our console into a local streaming video game server so that we can play them (within the same local network or WiFi) on our other devices instead of directly on the console.

Project xCloud will go live in October 2019

Visitors to the E3 2019 fair will be able to test the service these days in a preliminary way, but at the moment there are no clear data on the model that Microsoft will offer in this streaming video games.

Microsoft's managers indicated that Project xCloud will arrive in October 2019, but they have also talked about a very special modality called Console Streaming that will allow us to turn our own console into a video game streaming server.

This "local version" of Project xCloud will therefore offer a very similar service to the one we saw with devices such as Steam Link for the PC, but directly from the console and, importantly, for devices connected to the same local area network or WiFi as the console.

You pay for streaming, but you will also (probably) pay for every game you play.

Phil Spencer's words suggest something interesting. Speaking of Project xCloud and these two modes, he said that "whether you use a console in our data centers or your console at home, this October you can use our Hybrid Gaming Cloud to play your games wherever you go.

Talking about "playing your games" with that possessive pronoun seems to indicate that the service will not include games as such, but that you will have to buy them on the Microsoft platform and then enjoy them on your devices.

In Google Stadia they will include some games but you will have to buy many others, so it seems that these streaming gaming platforms will make us pay for using the platform as such: the games seem to be bought separately in most cases. We'll see if Microsoft can clarify this later, when the final launch of the service occurs.
