Xbox confirmed that it's still developing a low-cost streaming stick designed to bring Game Pass to the masses by cutting out the console. However, the company appears to have hit a snag with the most recent under-development hardware and is now pivoting to a new approach.
Earlier this month it was rumored that Microsoft is working on a device that would allow access to Xbox games by streaming them to a TV. The entire gaming experience would be streamed, with the expensive console hardware replaced by a cheap dongle, an Xbox Game Pass subscription, and a fast internet connection.
Now, Microsoft has confirmed the rumor for the streaming device which is codenamed "Keystone." In a statement, a Microsoft spokesperson said:
"Our vision for Xbox Cloud Gaming is unwavering, our goal is to enable people to play the games they want, on the devices they want, anywhere they want. As announced last year, we've been working on a game-streaming device, codename Keystone, that could be connected to any TV or monitor without the need for a console."
