Cloud Gaming News Weekly Recap

Let's kick off this week with the Outriders launch. As we all know this dropped on Stadia, GFN, Xbox Cloud Gaming and Boosteroid. If you want an idea of the best place to play check out Marchiefs comparison video on our YouTube channel.

It was a rocky launch to say the least, maybe one day a highly anticipated game will drop without a hitch. We can only hope. Servers at this time seem to be back up and running so jump in and get to work on that grind.
