Xbox Cloud Gaming is already available on Xbox consoles, the iPhone in your pocket, and the PC at your desk, and will soon be available on another platform. At the Meta Connect event, the company announced that Xbox’s cloud gaming network will be available for Meta Quest 3 in mixed reality in December.
Subscribers to Xbox’s cloud gaming network and Game Pass Ultimate can use the headset to play hundreds of Xbox games – including the recently released Starfield. Check out the video below to get an idea of what it looks like.
Support for Xbox Cloud Gaming and Xbox Game Pass on the Meta Quest platform was announced at Meta Connect in 2022, but the company did not announce a release window at the time.
The Meta Quest 3 mixed reality headset launches in October and will cost $500 for the 128GB version and $650 for the 250GB version.
Thanks to the cloud, Microsoft has been making Xbox games available outside of consoles and PCs for years. Microsoft is developing a dedicated streaming device to push further into this space, but the device has yet to be officially unveiled.
This is all part of Microsoft’s plan to reach 3 billion gamers and expand Xbox to more places. Microsoft makes billions from Game Pass, and CEO Satya Nadella’s pay package is tied to how many subscribers it can reach. Making the service available to more people in more places will help Game Pass make even more money and bring Nadella even bigger bonuses.
