Microsoft Keystone Gaming Console Teased

Xbox Game Streaming Device

Just like other major video game publishers and console manufacturers, Microsoft has also been trying to build their own game streaming service that will allow users to stream high-resolution games on low-power devices anywhere in the world. Towards this end, they recently announced their Xbox TV app, which allowed users to launch games from their Xbox Cloud Gaming service on various Samsung TVs and monitors.

Microsoft-Xbox-Streaming-Device

In addition to the streaming service itself, the company has also been working on a standalone game streaming device, which would enable the same functionalities, albeit through a dedicated Microsoft branded mini-console. The plan to launch such a device was first announced last year, with the company also revealing its working title, called Keystone. A lot of people thought that it would be a small USB-shaped device like the Firestick, which will be plugged into the HDMI port of your monitor for easy accessibility.

Now, a new teaser image posted on Twitter by Microsoft's head of Xbox, Phil Spencer, has given us a first look at the potential device, and it is much larger than we thought. The device showcased in the image looks like the existing Xbox Series S and is the size of a basic set-top-box unit. It features the iconic Microsoft logo and what seems to be a USB port in the front for the wired game controller.

While we assume that this is the final pre-production look of the device, the official Microsoft Xbox account on Twitter soon tweeted a reply which added further fuel to the rumour mills, saying, "Now what did we say about putting old prototypes on your shelf boss." So, chances are that the device may go through another iteration before it is ready for launch.

Whether this is true or just a ruse, one thing is certain. Microsoft is certainly working on a streaming device for its game streaming service, and it will hopefully be launched sometime next year. So, stay tuned for all the latest updates as we keep up informed about the progress of this news.
