Microsoft’s Xbox gets a new gaming cloud division

Microsoft Xbox One S features 4K Ultra HD Blu-ray and 4K video streaming.

Neighbourhood Technology Desk/Avi Arya: Microsoft Corp.’s Xbox video-game business is creating a unit that will focus on getting partners to use the company’s Azure cloud-computing services to run their internet-based games and features.

More game developers and publishers are delivering titles and additional content via web download and subscription, instead of selling games off the shelf, and offering multiplayer modes that match gamers online. Microsoft sees the opportunity to sell these companies – some of them longtime Xbox partners – on cloud services from Azure.
