In the same interview for Bloomberg that revealed that Microsoft will increase its efforts in game development , Phil Spencer (head of the Xbox division) revealed something interesting about the future of the company. Apparently, the company is working on a new streaming gaming system that can make its debut within three years.
According to the matter, the company even promoted a stage of internal testing of such a system in 2012, but the technology proved very costly and never reached consumers. However, the company’s recent advancements in its Azure storage system and changes in the economy and quality of cloud-based services have made it revisit the project.
Spencer has not revealed many details about what Microsoft is preparing in this direction, but has hinted that it will not be mandatory to have a traditional console to take advantage of the novelty. If the organization really bets on the technology, it must hit Sony’s PS Now, a solution found by the Japanese rival to allow PlayStation 4 and PC owners to play a good part of their catalog – as long as they respect the various restrictions imposed by the system in its current version.
