After this news was released, Microsoft send a statement Windows Central About Xbox Keystone. In it, he asserts that it is a game streaming device.
As we announced last year, we’ve been working on a game streaming device, codenamed Keystone, that can plug into any TV or monitor without the need for a console.
However, the rest of the statement may indicate that the hardware launch will not be too early – perhaps even in a few years. Microsoft admits that it has withdrawn from the chosen path and changed the concept of the device.
As with any technology project, we constantly evaluate our efforts, analyze the experience gained, and ensure that they deliver value to our clients. We have made the decision to opt out of the current version of Keystone [wyróżnienie – red.]. We’ll use the experience we’ve gained and refocus our efforts on a new approach that will allow us to bring Xbox Cloud Gaming to more gamers around the world in the future.
