Microsoft just announced that its cloud streaming service, xCloud, will be launching on Sept. 15 in select markets. The only problem? It's arriving on Android devices only, at least for the time being. 

Requiring an Xbox Game Pass Ultimate subscription, xCloud will provide streaming access to more than 100 games on your phone or tablet. And it's not the junky mobile adventures you'd expect, either. Notable titles at launch include Halo: The Master Chief CollectionDestiny 2, The Outer Worlds, F1 2019, Sea of Thieves, and Minecraft Dungeons. 

For those interested in giving this a try, the Razer Junglecat can give your Google-powered phone the Nintendo Switch treatment for just $99 USD. It's available through Amazon right here.
