    Well, it works.

    I played half an hour of Gears 5 on my phone earlier. I say played half an hour. I played for about 10 minutes and sat through 20 minutes of cutscenes. There was a lot of input lag and it did get a bit choppy in places but on the whole it works pretty well for what it is. 4 games to choose from currently, Gears 5, Halo 5, Sea of Thieves and Killer Instinct. Given my brief experience with Gears, Killer Instinct seems a bit ambitious as a demo title but I guess they reason that if they can get that playable then everything else should be easy. Worth a look if you get the chance, but obviously more of a novelty at the moment.

    I think they should have gone with a different name for this. Whenever I read about it I think of that aborted attempt to compete with PS4's performance advantage by using the "power of the cloud".

    I'm curious to see how this performs but I don't see how software can ever overcome the physcal latency issue.

    Woo just checked and have my email too. Will be trying this out over the weekend on my oneplus. Killer instinct does seem a bit ambitious.

    Yes you got to be level 5 in the insider app by jumping through hoops for a bit it seems, unless there is a way to apply direct.

    Looking forward to this, just hoping they add iOS support before long. Until then OneCast does a decent job.
