Microsoft demonstrates cloud gaming service
At Microsoft’s annual company meeting today, executives reportedly demonstrated the cloud gaming streaming service it’s been working on.
The company apparently demonstrated “Halo 4″ being streamed to a Windows Phone and PC, according to The Verge.
Microsoft has been emphasizing cloud services as part of its shift into a devices-and-services company, and the gaming arena is no exception. For example, the company has already shared details of its revamped Xbox Music service, which streams to the phone, PC and Xbox console, along with devices on other platforms.
Microsoft declined to provide more details of the project, other than to say: “The Microsoft Company Meeting is a great place to demonstrate many exciting possibilities, but we don’t have any specific plans to share at this time.”
