In the future, the proposed system will allow playing titles for Xbox consoles on absolutely any gadgets: tablets, smartphones, computers, laptops. That is, the games themselves will be launched in the cloud of the company and broadcast over cellular networks to the user's gadget.
Publicly test Project xCloud will start onlynext year. For the time being, internal tests of the service are being carried out on smartphones and tablets based on 4G networks.
