Microsoft is still working on its own streaming device for Xbox cloud gaming. The company confirmed this to the website Windows Central. This is a special streaming stick that is currently known as “Xbox Keystone” is traded.
Microsoft announced the device in June last year, but has since kept a low profile with new information. According to Microsoft, the project has evolved during this time and has undergone some changes. The original version of the stick has even been completely abandoned, the company said.
“Our vision for Xbox Cloud Gaming is unwavering. Our goal is to enable people to play the games they want, on the devices they want, wherever they want. As announced last year, we worked on a game streaming device, codenamed Keystone, that plugs into any TV or monitor without the need for a console.
As with any technical development, we constantly evaluate our efforts, review our findings and ensure we are delivering value to our customers. We have decided not to pursue the current version of the Keystone device any further. We will leverage our learnings and focus our efforts on a new approach that will allow us to bring Xbox cloud gaming to more gamers around the world in the future.”
It is therefore speculated that Keystone with a stripped down version of Windows or Xbox OS could go on sale. Such an approach would allow Microsoft to provide the device with its services, such as B. Movies & TV.
