Tomorrow is the official launch day for cloud streaming with Xbox Game Pass Ultimate, and Microsoft has revealed the full list of 172 titles users will be able to stream to their Android phones and tablets, from A Plague Tale: Innocence to Yakuza Kiwami 2.

It’s not the full Xbox Game Pass library, but a substantial chunk of those games will be available to stream on the Xbox Game Pass Android app tomorrow. I’ve been fiddling with the service in beta for a few weeks, and with a 5G phone and a proper controller, it’s a hell of a thing.

The full list of streaming launch games was revealed this morning over at Xbox Wire. Keep in mind that in order to access cloud streaming one needs to be an Xbox Game Pass Ultimate subscriber.

That is a pretty outstanding list of games. Were I not already able to play all of them directly on my Xbox One, I’m sure I’d be super-excited about tomorrow’s cloud gaming launch. Right now I’m more curious about how gamers will respond to this cloud gaming business than anything. Is this a thing you’re all excited about?

    • Not yet. We’re on the list.

      I’ve read that as of February it was possible to load the xcloud app anyway, but it undergoes a latency test before allowing you to progress, and since the Australian Azure servers aren’t supporting xcloud yet, you won’t pass the test.

      We do have local Azure servers, they just need to support the service. No idea what goes into that decision.

      Could be that they want to offer the service nation-wide if they offer it at all, but they only have data centers along the south-east coast of the continent, which might mean they can’t really offer the service nationwide. Might be that we end up seeing a Perth data center go live first. Not sure what they’d do about the top end. I doubt there’s anywhere close to the demand needed to justify one there.

      • Seeing as I’ve been seeing ‘PS Now coming to Australia’ since sometime in 2019, I’m not going to be holding my breath. That being said, MS does seem to have a lot more parity down here than Sony does…

        Fingers crossed it eventually does come here though..

        Now just have to convince my work to stop using apple products for all their company phones and tablets and move across to android..

        • I mean, it’s difficult to overstate how Microsoft’s Azure platform is dominating cloud services in Australia. (Turns out, ‘if you build it, they will come.’) The Deloitte predictions were accurate and we are well and truly at a point of ‘everything-as-a-service‘ in the enterprise space. Especially since Azure lets government get in on the action without concerns over data leaving the country; no small win given that damn near 10% of the nation’s population is involved in the public sector.

          So yeah, integrating xcloud into that infrastructure is going to be a hell of a lot smoother for Microsoft just going between internal divisions than whatever horrifically expensive negotiation Sony is facing.

          I think the real question is how big a demand/return is there in cloud gaming to justify expanding the cloud infrastructure beyond the demands of government and enterprise. If it happens at all next year, we may very well just see a ‘South-East Australia only’ rollout. Unless some very clever people can figure out how to go nationwide without installing very expensive data centers in places that otherwise wouldn’t need them.
