Game pass

Game Pass is now available on a stick: Xbox Everywhere

Game Pass isn’t looking to give up its mastery of game streaming anytime soon, and Xbox Everywhere looks to be its biggest implementation yet.

Let’s be honest: we knew this was coming. We always knew the future of game streaming was going to be in stick form, something you just plug into the side of your TV, monitor or whatever, and go from there. The games are on the cloud, the hardware is thin, and the only factor that determines whether you can play or not is your internet connection. It’s basically the Fire TV model, and now Xbox is realizing it for gaming.

Again: Everyone saw it coming I guess, but I still love it. Listen, I have a Fire Stick, and it’s… fire. Sorry, not sorry, because it’s true: every time I travel, I bring my stick, plug it in wherever I want, and have a great time. Also, I’m aware of how I made that sound.

If you don’t think this will have a huge impact on gaming, you’re kidding yourself, and I’m sure other companies will follow in no time. This again reinforces my belief that we’ve seen the last generation of hardware with the PS5 and Xbox Series X, which given what’s happened with scalpers and the ridiculous prices these systems are selling for, should make the conscious player very happy.
