Here’s something way out of left field: the Xbox One is getting a cloud-streaming service thanks to Square Enix, Microsoft and Ubitus. The service will only be available in China for the time being as it’s going through a round of beta testing.
There’s no word on pricing yet and there’s no list of games confirmed, though we do know that Final Fantasy XIII will be available. It’s a little odd that it’s only available in China, though we reckon if the technology proves itself to work well and resonate with customers, then there’s no reason it couldn’t spread over to the west.
The way the service works is that players will download a small file and then stream the game via cloud computing. It’s a similar setup to what goes on with Sony’s game streaming service PS Now.
