Microsoft xCloud preview now offers 50+ games, to be launched in 2020 with support for DualShock 4 controllers and PC streaming

Google Stadia is coming in a few days’ time with fewer features than we were expecting it to have, but if Google Stadia doesn’t fit your bill, the good news is there are still plenty of game streaming services to consider if you want to play games but your budget doesn’t allow for dedicated gaming hardware. One of those streaming services, among several alternatives from names like NVIDIA and Apple, is Microsoft xCloud. Microsoft xCloud is like having an Xbox in the cloud, and those enjoying the preview can now enjoy some good news.

First off, the xCloud preview will now be offering over 50 games, up from the 5 games available when the preview first launched over a month ago and definitely more than Stadia’s own 12 games available at launch.
