Microsoft Doubles Down on Xbox, Launching xCloud in Japan

At the Xbox showcase presented at this year's Tokyo Game Show on Thursday, Microsoft (NASDAQ: MSFT) said it plans to launch its xCloud video-game streaming service in Japan by June of next year. In a video presentation shown at the event, Xbox chief Phil Spencer emphasized the importance of Japan's influence on gaming, calling the country a "creative superpower in the industry." Xbox is already transitioning from a business anchored primarily by consoles, expanding to entice more gamers on PCs and mobile devices to join its ranks.
