Microsoft has unveiled Clarity Boost. This is a new feature coming specifically for the Edge web browser. It would allow players to get a sharper image for their games through a a client-side scaling improvements. We’re uncertain if this is all the news for the Xbox Game Pass cloud gaming for this week. However, it’s at least something for those that enjoy streaming games through their PC.
Microsoft made an interesting move these past generations. While the Xbox One console was initially unveiled with plenty of flack, the company has been making a turnaround. First, they brought out a promise to ensure PC players would receive first-party exclusives alongside the Xbox console. Then another big move came about when Xbox delivered the Game Pass subscription service.
This service allowed players to access all the first-party video game exclusives along with a slew of third-party video games. Initially, the service came to the console platform and PC, but that wasn’t enough for Xbox. The company wanted to make more of an ecosystem, including something like your typical smartphones and tablets. That was possible through cloud gaming which again further spread to other platforms.
Cloud gaming eventually came to the web browsers so players on the PC platform could eventually stream games. That made it where all players needed was a strong and stable internet service to enjoy games. Of course, the video games were a bit iffy to some that were dealing with latency issues. While there is always potential to see this service thrive, it could mean there’s more news incoming.
A new rumor surfaced online from Windows Central reporter Jez Corden. Apparently, the reporter claims that they have insider information suggesting some news is coming. Unfortunately, we don’t have any details on that matter. We’re not sure if more upgrades are coming out or perhaps more platforms. Outside Xbox, PC, and mobile devices, it would be interesting to see what the subscription service pops up on next. It’s been noted in the past that there could potentially be applications to streaming devices like Roku or smart televisions.
