Project xCloud Accessories Lineup Revealed for Mobile Devices
As Xbox readies its roll-out of xCloud, their latest cloud-gaming service, (officially renamed to: “Cloud gaming with Xbox Game Pass Ultimate”) they’ve partnered with top manufacturers to develop accessories to make those console-like experiences more at home on mobile.
The huge barrier to entry, assuming the tech works as it should, is always the ability to have a comfortable gaming session on a mobile device. That is certainly the biggest barrier for myself. Xbox duly noted this issue and partnered with Razer, PowerA and 8BitDo to better house your mobile device. They have also partnered with SteelSeries for the audio side of things.
Get some details on each peripheral below as detailed in the latest Xbox Wire post:
Winner of Best of CES and People’s Choice awards 2020, the Razer Kishi Universal Mobile Gaming Controller for Android is bringing its ergonomic design to the Designed for Xbox program. The integrated Xbox Button, Clickable Analog Thumbsticks and low-latency USB-C connection provide console-quality control for most Android smartphones.
The MOGA XP5-X Plus delivers the familiarity of an Xbox style controller, plus Bluetooth, a detachable phone clip, and mappable Advanced Gaming Buttons. It also includes an integrated 3000mAh rechargeable Power Bank that can be used to charge Android mobile devices on the go.
The SN30 Pro for Android utilizes 8BitDo’s Precision Software allowing you to modify button mapping, adjust stick and trigger sensitivity, and create controller profiles to bring your mobile gaming experience to a new level of customization.
No mobile gaming session would be complete without a quality audio solution and the SteelSeries Arctis 1 Wireless for Xbox is just the headset for it. This 4-in-1 wireless gaming headset allows you to move seamlessly from Xbox gaming to mobile gaming using the compact USB-C dongle for your Android device, giving you gaming-grade audio on-the-go.
Project xCloud (Cloud gaming with Xbox Game Pass Ultimate ) is due to launch on September 15th for Android devices, and is now a part of Xbox Game Pass Ultimate. There is currently no known date for iOS devices. This is presumably due to Apple’s stricter limits on stores within its platform.
