Alright, alright, bring those eyebrows back down to Earth for me. I know that streaming these games might be a bit of an ask for the Xbox One. There's a reason why we got the Xbox One S and the Xbox One X, and it was to pick up the pace of the original console. Compared to the Xbox One, the Xbox One X's GPU has nearly six times the number of teraflops, unlocking 4K resolutions and high dynamic range, as well as a smoother performance relying on a zippy 12GB of RAM and a glorious 1TB hard drive. Still, Microsoft is confident that the Xbox One's specs are not going to keep its users from enjoying the latest and greatest games from its studios.
Radiating bombast and grandeur, the Xbox & Bethesda conference came out with all guns blazing. Yet, one of the most amazing reveals of the showcase wasn't about a game. A number of us at GAMINGbible were stunned and sold on this tongue-in-cheek invention, so check out its trailer below.
"You'll see many games this holiday, including Forza Horizon 5, which will boast DirectX ray-tracing on both Xbox Series X and S, and Battlefield 2042, which will run at 60fps while supporting 128 players on Xbox Series X/S," explained Xbox Wire editor in chief Will Tuttle in a post published on the weekend. "Some games launching next year from our first party studios and partners, such as Starfield, Redfall, and Stalker 2 require the speed, performance, and technology of Xbox Series X/S."
Tuttle ensured that those with an Xbox One weren't left out of the celebrations, and if this strategy comes off without a hitch, then this community of players will be at the vanguard of cloud gaming services from one of the biggest companies in the world. "We're excited to see developers realise their visions in ways that only next-gen hardware will allow them to do," continued Tuttle. "For the millions of people who play on Xbox One consoles today, we are looking forward to sharing more about how we will bring many of these next-gen games, such as Microsoft Flight Simulator, to your console through Xbox Cloud Gaming, just like we do with mobile devices, tablets, and browsers."
Only last week did Microsoft reveal its plans to integrate Xbox Game Pass to smart TVs, allowing anyone with an internet-connected TV and a subscription to play titles like Grounded, Halo: The Master Chief Collection and Sea Of Thieves without needing an Xbox console. Nifty, right? Furthermore, the company is currently in "the final stages" of improving its global distribution of data centres with the Xbox Series X, achieving "faster load times, improved frame rates, and experience Xbox Series X'S optimised games." We'll let you know when we get footage of an Xbox Series X title streaming on an Xbox One and you'll be able to make your mind up.
