The console wars are over now that Xbox Game Pass includes xCloud

Gaming Hardware
Xbox game pass ultimate will include game streaming feature x cloud. So what's that mean? for PlayStation and Nintendo? Well, console wars are over. [MUSIC] Telling you to go kiss someone out in the streets but haha, Actually do not do that it is medically inadvisable in the current pandemic climate. [MUSIC] Ok. consoles. Yes. Here's why. Microsoft just announced its Project X cloud gaming service will officially launch on September 15. x cloud is a streaming service that will allow gamers to play full console games on their mobile devices. For the same way you stream 4k movies and TV shows the available games tie into Microsoft's game pass subscription service, which is already excellent and last month, Xbox announced a ton of Xbox series X Games wouldn't be available same day and date as launch. On Gamepass Seitdem. As of this recording x cloud is only scheduled for launch on Android devices, and the company had no additional information about Apple phones and tablets, but I'm sure it's on the roadmap if Apple wants it to be. That's a whole other war though. So let's just put that aside and continue on with the cause. So Xbox is betting big on its game pass service, which is the smart move, it's insanely popular and they've really done a fantastic job expanding the service and offering compelling titles within it. It's a huge shift in the gaming industry and I'm really excited to see how that plays out for Microsoft. [SOUND] Compare that strategy with Sony who is sticking with a much more traditional console launch, the only new is hardware to play the most games. The PlayStation five has a slew of exclusive titles like horizon forbidden less, and Marvel's Spider Man Miles Morales and Sony is hoping you'll pony up $60 or 70 in the case of NBA TK, one for each game and then also give them money for a PlayStation Plus subscription. You know the Drill. It's the model we're all used to and Sony is hoping you'll be so very enticed by those exclusives. You'll be desperate for a PS five. Yeah, yeah, I know they also have PlayStation now but Sony hasn't announced any plans to incorporate it into PlayStation plus offer any major triple A releases Dan date or otherwise make it any more appealing than its audience. Honestly really not that good compared to game pass. [MUSIC] And lastly we have Nintendo which has for better and for worse, I'm looking at you been proudly marching to the beat of its own drum planet solar system since the launch of the original, we're way back into In 2006 they are the equivalent of a make love not war t-shirt in all of this[LAUGHING].Then you have the rest of the competition out there fighting for the scraps, screaming services like google stadia and nvidia geforce now will unleash devices It's like the analog pocket and the Intellivision amico and so on and so forth. If every single console manufacturer has a different end game for its customers, the console war is officially over. There's no more fighting, no more pledging undying fealty to a console overlord. No more need to screech across foxholes about how your console of choice is winning some imaginary battle that requires the rest of us to tear the other down. Somebody that talks when, of course. Don't be ridiculous. You know who won? We did. And that's a fact. [MUSIC]
