Lol, not even a joke. They'll might just buy Nvidia and scrap xCloud or rename GeForce now to xCloud.

 

Sony did exactly that. They bought both onlive & gaikai and made ps now. Back in the day these 2 were the only cloud streaming services. Gaikai was  more of a technology demonstrater while onlive tried and failed with a stadia like model.

It’s going to be gut wrenching if M$ mega plan of cloud streaming fails like it did for Google’s Stadia. 
 

Not only have they put too much of their investor’s stake into it but they have basically mutilated the AAA games business as we know it.

GeForce Now RTX 3080 review: is cloud gaming finally a viable alternative?

 

Quote

Kicking off with image quality, it's worth stating that xCloud still seems to be work-in-progress - and even if the Series X silicon in the cloud is rendering at 4K, the image gets downscaled to 1080p. However, selected titles do seem to support 120Hz. There's the sense here that xCloud's streaming technology is somewhat limited while the processing power at the server-end is very good. In this regard it beats Stadia easily, but doesn't offer the 4K streaming option that Google has had since day one with its Pro subscription. To put it into perspective, Outriders is a 60fps experience on GeForce Now and xCloud, but the 4K output option for Stadia only delivers 1440p at 30fps (though 1080p60 is an option).

On a more global level, integration with existing gaming platforms is important. Microsoft's xCloud impresses because it is essentially an Xbox in the cloud, meaning that game progress and achievements automatically synchronise between servers and local consoles, while multiplayer gaming is similarly seamless. 

 

Comparing GeForce Now which has been around since 2015 and a final release 5 years later and requires you have the games to 16 months old xCloud which is still in beta. :lol:

And what's wrong with that? 

Right now, as it is, this is the state of both services latency(which was the point of that tweet), GeForce Now is much much better than xCloud if DF is to be believed.

Cloud gaming penetration is a question of accessibility and not of technology. 

Stadia, GeForce, xcloud and Heck even ps now for the matter have acceptable quality but MS is the only once which has a comprehensive strategy with hardware + the software to go with it. 

Stadia was DoA with its custom OS and having to buy games all over again. 

GeForce now afaik can only stream steam games and is beholden to license holders allowing it to stream a game. 

PS Now is comprehensive but is lacking somewhat in content quality. 

Content is king and Microsoft already has solved that piece of the puzzle. Tech can always catch up to it.
