That dream of transporting your gambling wherever you go, once unreachable or inconceivable, is a tangible reality with Project xCloud – in fact, it is (almost) concrete. Microsoft’s ambitious service officially arrives in Brazil on the 18th, with registration now open, as published here on Voxel.
To get more information and understand what mechanisms will be adopted in our territory, Voxel had the opportunity to speak with Catherine Gluckstein, general manager and product head of Cloud Gaming, and Kareem Choudhry, corporate vice president of Gaming Cloud.
Yes, it works all over Brazil!
A basic question that populates our perception is whether the service would operate throughout the country or only in specific regions. As we know, Microsoft uses datacenters to manage all cloud / server data movement. In fact, a new Azure region was recently opened in Rio de Janeiro.
“The idea is for Project xCloud to work throughout Brazil. We will work from the feedback, listen to the experience of the players, take a humble approach, step by step, without rushing things. We want people to test and tell us about the experience, ”explained Catherine.
“All your saves, all your progress, everything goes with you. We save and take care of everything”
“Our study in Brazil has always existed, we have infrastructure with the Azure facilities here and we are keeping an eye on everything that is happening. We were waiting for the right moment to bring [xCloud] as safely as possible ”, added Kareem.
The experience “leaving home and taking gambling with you”
Asked about the exact trajectory of the user in the process of starting a game on the console and continuing it on the phone, Catherine was emphatic: “We adapted the settings, the controls, we tried to create an environment from which you can play the way you want. is thinking about several scenarios: using a bluetooth control, using the cell phone’s own screen … all your saves, all your progress, everything goes with you. We save and take care of everything, rest assured, ”he replied.
