Published 04/21/2021, 2:22 PM EDT


Xbox has announced the upcoming Game Pass titles for console, PC, and Android. MLB The Show 21 will be the first to join the list before any other game. It will be followed by Phogs, which will come out on PC on 22 April. However, in a recent revelation, Sony has claimed that it was MLB’s decision to add the PlayStation title in Xbox Game Pass. Therefore, PlayStation players will have to pay the standard price for the title, while Game Pass owners will get it today with the subscription service.

They will test out over 100 games that Microsoft has selected for the test. Catherine Gluckstein, Vice President & Head of Product, Project xCloud, gave the following statement on the exercise. 

In the early stages of the beta, we’ll be focusing on fine-tuning features and creating a consistent experience across platforms, while making sure games are running their best. The limited beta is our time to test and learn; we’ll send out more invites on a continuous basis to players in all 22 supported countries, evaluate feedback, continue to improve the experience, and add support for more devices. Our plan is to iterate quickly and open up to all Xbox Game Pass Ultimate members in the coming months so more people have the opportunity to play Xbox in all-new ways.”

There is still a long way to go for this project. However, cloud gaming can be the future, and Microsoft might be the first one on the track to achieve it properly on a massive scale.
