The technology is already in preview on some mobile devices, and Microsoft is bringing another 50 games to the service for the test right now. A closed beta will be released sometime in February 2020 before its public launch.
While games are about more than just the number of polygons you can squeeze into each frame, it certainly doesn't hurt the Xbox One X marketing division to proudly proclaim that theirs is the most powerful console ever built. It's just a darned good value, and it seems like the company is tripping over itself to add more and more games to Game Pass's vault. Any of those games you looking forward to playing? A wider range of controllers will be supported next year, too, including the PlayStation Dualshock.

Game Pass is perhaps Microsoft's biggest weapon in the ongoing arms race against the other consoles.
This year's Xbox special event, X019, an annual celebration of games and essentially all things Xbox witnessed the announcement of several new games and trailers including news about Project xCloud and Xbox Game Pass.
Halo Reach is being added to the Master Chief Collection, for console and PC, on December 3..
Microsoft has also confirmed that when Project xCloud properly launches, you will be able to stream the games you already own using the cloud servers and Game Pass subscribers will also be able to stream their games.
"We're going to show you some fantastic things [at X019], but before the end of the year we will show you even more games and then as we go into 2020, I think you will see one of the most exciting line-ups that we've had from Xbox Game Studios in as long as I can remember".
Lots of new trailers and updates for previously-announced games.. Ever since then, its sequels and spin-offs including the highly acclaimed Halo: Reach remained as exclusives on Microsoft's Xbox 360 and Xbox One consoles.
In addressing at least the power argument, Microsoft has been parading around the specs of its next-gen console, Project Scarlett, that include up to 120 fps, ray tracing, custom-designed CPUs with Radeon RDNA architecture, 8K gaming and variable refresh rates among other key features.
