Make your XBOX a PC with Windows 365 (Microsoft cloud PC on browser)

Hello I have a couple of questions, Microsoft has its windows 365 which lets you use windows on the browser or with an app.
1) What is the specifications? does it rival shadow and maximum settings?
2) Can I buy an XBOX and connect mouse and keyboard and use windows 365 essentially making it very close to 500$ gaming PC?

(I saw there is a personal version that cost 69.99/year and I have seen that they used to have a one time purchase and can't find it any more, did they stopped giving that option?)

It’s definitely not enough power for gaming. Also you know lots of Xbox games allow mouse and keyboard over usb right?

Is it plugged in? Is it turned on? Are you sure? No, really.

Well buying a pc is probably gonna be cheaper than this subscription.

 

ALso latency is gonna be much worse than any local PC, so its gonna just feel sluggish.

For one, none of the options even have a dedicated GPU, so gaming is a complete no go. The cheapest options are only for light office use. There's plans with enough beef to actually do some serious work, but they're much more expensive.

 

Long and short, it's targeted squarely at businesses where the initial equipment investment would be too great or they need to be able to quickly spin up new setups for transitional employees and such. It doesn't make sense as an option for the average consumer.

Windows 365 is just a lower end office computer. It is NOT AT ALL INTENDED FOR GAMING. It's meant for office work and thus the specs follow that.

 

So:

 

1. No not even close it could barely play anything

2. Sure but why? There's no point in doing this as the xbox is already a gaming device. If you want a gaming pc you buy a gaming pc.
