Cloud gaming is slowly but surely growing. While Google Stadia shut down its services amidst uncertainty, Xbox is ramping up their Xbox Cloud efforts.
With the service currently available in certain countries with an Xbox Game Pass subscription, it seems the tech giant wants to bring its efforts to more platforms.
During the Meta Connect 2022 Livestream on Monday, Satya Nadella, CEO of Microsoft, revealed Xbox Cloud Gaming heading to the Meta Quest platform. As per the proposed plans, Meta Quest VR headset owners will be able to connect an Xbox pad to the headset and play Cloud titles offered through Game Pass.
Meta, in an accompanying blog post, talked a bit about the announcement.
“Xbox Cloud Gaming enables you to stream hundreds of high-quality games to a range of devices—and that will include Meta Quest 2 in the future”, Meta said.
“When Xbox Cloud Gaming launches on the Meta Quest Store, you’ll be able to hook up an Xbox controller to your headset and play console games from the Xbox Game Pass Ultimate library on a massive 2D screen, like having a private movie theatre available at all times.”
Meta says that no dates are confirmed yet on when the service will grace the platform. However, they will reveal more soon. In other Quest VR-related news, a few months ago, Meta announced the pricing increase of Quest 2 VR headsets by 100 dollars.
