Microsofts would like to offer the streaming service xCloud on other platforms, including the Playstation 5 and Nintendo’s Switch. Discussions that are in an advanced state are already to be conducted with Nintendo.
Microsoft is sticking to plans for xCloud on other platforms
“At the highest levels of [Microsoft] we are determined to advance these plans and further expand our console platform, “writes Microsoft’s Phil Spencer in an email to Epics Tim Sweeney.” You can join in if you feel comfortable with it. But I just wanted to let you guys know that I wrote down your point of view on xCloud on other consoles (I haven’t given up), F2P outside of Gold (we’ll get there and I want to work with you guys), and our store entitlement ideas as points that I want to go through with you guys to make progress. “
Phil Spencer is sticking to his plans to offer xCloud on other platforms. This would theoretically make it possible to stream Xbox games on the PS5 or the Switch in the future. In this case, it would not be a matter of native publications – unless there is a deal and the games then appear natively for other platforms – but xCloud would still offer the possibility of exclusive games for the Xbox, for example on the PS5 or Nintendo Play Switch.
Only Sony and Nintendo would have to agree and want to participate. Even if it is said that we are in advanced talks with Nintendo, we do not yet know what Sony thinks about this matter. This might even be the somewhat more difficult business partner for Microsoft.
