Xbox is still working on a small streaming device for playing games over the internet, report claims

The device would not require any of the powerful and expensive components that power consoles like the Xbox Series X. Instead, it would simply stream games over the internet, from a remote console, using Microsoft’s Cloud Gaming platform.

That would allow customers to play the latest Xbox games at a much lower cost – as well as avoiding the ongoing problems with actually being able to buy an Xbox, which remain mostly out of stock and difficult to find.

Xbox first announced the streaming project, nicknamed “Keystone”, last June. Since then, it has revealed little about it, while still continuing to work on a streaming platform on other devices.

“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, anywhere they want. As announced last year, we’ve been working on a game-streaming device, codename Keystone, that could be connected to any TV or monitor without the need for a console,” a Microsoft spokesperson told Windows Central.
