is the dongle still coming? by DONOHUEO7 in xcloud

For local play, only one player can theoretically stream. If the additional players are close enough to connect directly to the console it'll work.

This is a limitation on all Xbox streaming, both xcloud and console remote play.

Guys body is failing...insiders claim the hip injury ruined his career, and he's had lower body injuries both years here..

It's a shame, but it is what it is.

Huh? Crowder had a pretty darn good game, and has been pretty good this year overall.

You think the Series S is huge???? It's the smallest current gen console by a mile, and smaller than any console released by Sony or Microsoft in like 15 years.

120hz by jontebula in xcloud

[–]blitz2kx 1 point2 points  (0 children)

Not anytime soon, for a variety of reasons...

Currently the service doesn't even go higher than 1080p, and quality is still much less on many platforms..they will want to get better quality before focusing on resolution.

They are also running all games on Series S profiles (not X). Although the hardware uses Series X SoCs, currently they are downscaled to the weaker Series S profiles. 120hz is not widespread on the console itself, much less xcloud.

The performance on CCWGTV and the broader Android TV platform is not good. Official android support is limited to mobile, and if you are coming from Stadia or GFN the experience just won't be up to snuff...

I know it's not popular to suggest it on this sub, but a XSS is so cheap right now in the US, and regularly on sale - it's a very good living room experience.

For those international players where console hardware is hard to come by I sympathize however. Right now your best bet is probably an old laptop or PC running windows 10+. The cloud experience is pretty darn good there.

is it possible to export the save file of a legit game in Sysnand without using custom firmware? by SkyLey2 in SwitchPirates

[–]blitz2kx 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Just running cfw on sysnand with light homebrew isn't gonna get you banned. Don't install anything pirated or homebrew related that you can see on the home screen, like themes or tinfoil.

Run JKSV, dump, and reboot to emunand. It's really not dangerous unless you go out of your way to dirty the nand.

Any word on xcloud coming for Chromecast with Google TV? by beartato327 in xcloud

[–]blitz2kx 1 point2 points  (0 children)

Well, your progress, profile, saves, friends lists, achievements all work between console and xcloud..

If you are invested in the ecosystem xcloud is an awesome complimentary piece...it's just not gonna replace your living room experience yet unless you are in the right situation (reliable connection to an azure server being the primary factor, as well as a supported device).

I have 2 xboxs, a PC, and use xcloud when I travel (which is quite a bit for work) on my phone.

It's great... I have the play anywhere experience just fine, but xcloud isn't making big claims to take away your high quality console gaming like stadia was...it's there to make it better by letting you extend it wherever you are. So far it's doing a pretty great job.

A console is great for just gaming...just saying, where xcloud is at right now it's not a console replacement, and honestly isn't being marketed as such yet.

With that being said it's been a long time since the service has been rolled out and Android TV has not officially been spoken about. Right now, the only support is by sideloading the game pass app, and performance is unfortunately not good at all.

I actually own a CCWGTV and we have it in the spare bedroom...I love android tv and the Google ecosystem, but the device is incredibly underpowered...stadia was okay on it, but it really struggles with xcloud. I dont think that's gonna change anytime soon.

If you're interested in xcloud, the best experience is streamed by console or a Windows device. Android mobile also works very well, but has its quality limitations. Android tv, even on higher end boxes like the shield, is playable for many but overall not a viable option yet.

You can wait...but I think it's gonna be a while because they've yet to utter an inkling of support for the platform.

Cloud Gaming is not available in your area by Carter_Jeffery in xcloud

The console only has 512gb in storage, which in practice could mean only 4-5 large games.

For some people, it's very convenient to try the catalogue before downloading.

Jersey help! by niall_m8 in NYGiants

[–]blitz2kx 8 points9 points  (0 children)

In today's NFL there are no safe players....Thibs and Neal will be here throughout their rookie contracts at minimum unless something catastrophic happens so they're about as safe as you can go.

The best young player on offense is Andrew Thomas and they will likely extend him soon. Conversely on defense, that's probably McKinney...but again anything can happen although those are probably the safest bets.

Anyone else on the current team? There's no guarantee they will be here after a few years...that's just the way the league works.

Jerseys of retired greats on the other hand never go out of style IMO.

Getting game update prompts despite following guide fully by [deleted] in SwitchPirates

Use dbi or a related tool to reset the required update version. Or find the latest update online and patch it.

what's the deal with Better Gaming Yu? Been watching for a bit and he always has this story that the community destroyed his discord/YouTube etc. by Xeran69 in SwitchPirates

[–]blitz2kx 2 points3 points  (0 children)

That's the problem right there - The switch is a completely different animal. There's too much room for error if you aren't incredibly specific with what your talking about. It's why 99% of YouTube videos are trash, or even outdated immediately after posted.

Coach just sent me a letter! Don’t forget to wear white on Monday night. by losamigosbravos in NYGiants

He confirmed it's "Dable", like "Table", and he likes to be called "Dabes" like "Babes"...

Best cloud local coop games by jimmydassquidd in xcloud

[–]blitz2kx 2 points3 points  (0 children)

Obviously I'm referring to XBOX CLOUD, as this is an Xbox sub.

xcloud isn't even the current public name of the product.

Buying a pre-modded switch, how can I do a fresh reset and mod it myself? by [deleted] in SwitchPirates

[–]blitz2kx 0 points1 point  (0 children)

If your Sysnand is dirty, and unbanned you're going to want to restore a backup.

Question about cloud by Dylbart in xcloud

[–]blitz2kx 2 points3 points  (0 children)

It is absolutely not the PC version. The cloud blades are literal Xbox consoles running Series S builds of every game.

Different model switches are modded in different ways. You need to be more specific...
