Microsoft is testing playing Xbox games in your browser

Microsoft isa technology company and when they see a problem that they think they can solve, they put their best and brightest minds to a solution. So when the question arises as to why cloud-based gaming hasn’t taken off and the answer is lag (to put it simply), the company sees this as a time to get to work.

A few weeks back, aMicrosoft research projectshowed that the company had built a cloud-based gamingservice that reduced the lag by a significant margin. Of course, Microsoft has many research products that never seem to make it out of the labs for one reason or another, but this product is a bit different.

Microsoft is testing out playing games in your browser and not just any games. We’re talkingXbox games -and not just last-generation titles either. In fact, even Xbox One titles are currently said to be in the works too.

And don’t think this is some watered-down experience; one source told us thathe thought the experience was right around 60FPS, while another stated that this is going to be the company’s next killer gaming feature.
