Few things to Keep in Mind
The thing is, you have control over certain things when it comes to cloud gaming. Like, you can decide to have a wired or wireless connection and internet speed.
As you will be playing on a cloud server, strong connectivity is as important as your console and Xbox One will do good according to Microsoft. However, some games might show exceptions like Halo: Reach didn’t show quite a good performance with xCloud.
If you own Xbox One, you should give it a try before retiring your console. If works well, keep it alongside the new ones. Or else get something better. Either way, xCloud is going to be awesome over time. Stay tuned for more Xbox One update that gets next-gen games via xCloud.
