You know things are bad for Google Stadia when even the Google sites say it’s stuffed. But that’s what they’re saying: the latest upgrade heading for Xbox Cloud Gaming, which you can play not just on the Xbox Series X and Xbox Series S but on PC and some of the best phones and best tablets too, takes away the only real advantage Stadia has. The only good news for Google is that the feature isn’t here yet.
As 9to5Google reports (opens in new tab), Microsoft is adding support for keyboard and mouse input. That’s not new to Xbox owners, who’ve been able to up their game with the best gaming keyboards and best gaming mice for years now. But Microsoft’s cloud gaming didn’t support those input devices, so this is a significant step forward. If developers choose to add it to their games it means Xbox Cloud Gaming will deliver an even better experience on PCs in particular.
