First look at xCloud for Windows 10

Microsoft has started testing xCloud for Windows 10 PCs internally! Why would you use the game streaming service on your computer? It's simple, you don't need anything more than a good connection and a gamepad. No fancy processor or graphics card. It will run on pretty much any crappy Windows tablet or cheap notebook. There are a couple of games already available on the service but all of them run only at 720p at the moment. “This internal preview is running at 720p resolution with 1080p just around the corner,” according to internal Microsoft support note. Here are some screenshots from The Verge: Microsoft’s xCloud server The team is currently working on transitioning the xCloud servers to the brand new AMD based processor and GPU used in Xbox Series X. It is far more powerful - it includes a new encoder up to 6 times faster than now! The service launches by the end of 2020 if everything goes as planned.

Microsoft Store: Cloud saves corrupted? You’re out of luck!

There's a pretty interesting topic on /r/windows10 today. Someone is having problems with Superhot VR edition. Basically his savegame got corrupted somehow and unfortunately the broken file is already up in the cloud. What doest that mean? According to Microsoft support you have to "play the game again". Ouch. On Steam whenever you're having problems with syncing your saved games the program actually asks you if you want to use the local saved games or the cloud ones. But not on Microsoft store, if something goes wrong you're screwed. You can read more about this problem here and see more of those screenshots here.
