Samsung teams up with Xbox to counter Stadia - Geeko
Facing Stadia, resistance is organized. Microsoft, which is about to launch its own cloud-gaming service (streaming video games) with the xCloud project, has just signed a partnership with the Korean giant Samsung.
If the details of the partnership are still unknown, the assumptions are already well underway. The logic would be that Samsung pre-installs on its terminals the future application of game streaming from Microsoft, and potentially offers several months of subscription to the platform for all buyers of its future devices.
The cloud gaming war is declared
For Samsung, this would be to offer an attractive exclusivity for consumers. For Microsoft, the partnership signed with the Korean giant could allow it to recruit millions of potential subscribers for its future game streaming platform.
The xCloud project will allow owners of a smartphone to play Xbox games on their mobile, with an Xbox controller, without owning a game console. Via a subscription formula, the player will be able to explore a vast catalog of games that will bring together major productions such as Gears of War or Halo but also independent productions and games from third-party publishers.
