It is not much of a mystery that not everyone can afford a big gaming rig that can run the latest games. Thus, going to an Internet Cafe or a friend’s house for some gaming sessions might seem like a budget-friendly solution.

However, that mentality changed when cloud gaming services came to the market.

There are plenty of them already present, but none of them can actually be called a finished product. This includes big names such as Google‘s very own Stadia, or Microsoft’s xCloud.

xCloud might still get a PC release yet

Among the cloud gaming services, xCloud seems to be the most active in terms of development and feature releases. Thus, it goes without saying that gamers everywhere have high hopes that maybe they will come up with a PC release soon enough.

According to Reddit user An Xbox Dude, Phil Spencer is already testing out a new xCloud app at home, too. In fact, the Redditor managed to take a picture of Spencer making use of a program called Xbox Game Streaming (Test App), which looks very much like the PC version of xCloud.

Microsoft has already announced plans to bring xCloud to PCs in 2020, and it seems that this year will also allow you to play whatever games you own along with Xbox Game Pass titles through the streaming service.

In the end, this may compensate for the extremely slow release of the xCloud beta. In fact, many consider that xCloud is already becoming a more complete, stable and reliable cloud gaming service than its main competitor, Google Stadia.

Admittedly, improvements have been made for Stadia as well, but many users are still skeptical if it will ever be able to live up to the high-bar already set by xCloud.

That being said, if you are looking forward to some hardcore AAA gaming experiences starting with the end of 2020, then you might no longer fear having to buy a monster gaming rig to satisfy your needs.
