It’s still early days, then, and it’ll be interesting to see how this establishes ahead of the brand-new Microsoft Edge app getting a complete release for all Xbox users in the coming months or weeks. Excited by the capacity of playing PC video games on Xbox?
We highlighted a video back in early March which revealed an Xbox Insider playing PC video games on their Xbox through NVIDIA’s GeForce Now service, all thanks to the capabilities of the new Microsoft Edge app on Xbox.
That app is still only readily available for Xbox Insiders for now, however it’s moved on rather considerably, including full mouse and keyboard assistance in recent days. As a result, it’s really becoming possible to play PC games on Xbox with mouse and keyboard, consisting of games such as Counter-Strike: GO and even PlayStation’s Death Stranding.
Here’s what Tom Warren of The Verge had to state about his experiences with it:
“Currently, I can stream Google Stadia games and use mouse and keyboard on the Xbox, but I’ve likewise been able to effectively stream PC games from Steam to an Xbox through the internet browser.
I’ve played Counter-Strike: Global Offensive, Death Stranding, DOTA 2, and a bunch of other PC video games that merely aren’t available on Xbox right now.”
Remarkably, Warren wasn’t able to access these video games through GeForce Now, which supposedly isn’t working on the brand-new Microsoft Edge app right now, however rather used an app called Parsec to stream the games from his PC to the Xbox web browser. As an outcome, he kept in mind that “latency/ connectivity isn’t always the very best.”
It’s still early days, then, and it’ll be interesting to see how this develops ahead of the brand-new Microsoft Edge app getting a full release for all Xbox users in the coming weeks or months. Finest case scenario, we could be playing the similarity Counter-Strike and even Runescape (!) on our Xboxes in the not too far-off future.
