Apparently, Phil Spencer, head of Microsoft’s Xbox side, Steam Deck owner. Phil Spencer on Twitter yesterday afternoon. a post he made He stated that he liked Steam Deck very much and that playing Halo and Age over xCloud felt quite good. Phil Spencer had previously stated that he wanted to see xCloud, Microsoft’s cloud-based game system, on other platforms, and although they said that they had taken some steps for this, other platforms did not look forward to it.

Phil Spencer: Steam Deck runs xCloud very well
The cloud-based game system of Xbox Game Pass, which can be run through an internet browser, was recently built into the application for the PC side and opened for users who are members of the Xbox Insider program. Also, we’ve seen titles like “Xbox Game Pass coming to Steam” in the past months and haven’t seen any developments since. While the eyes of the giants of the game world seem to be on Steam’s latest device, Ubisoft made a statement in the past weeks, “If Steam Deck is successful, we can return to Steam.”
After this sharing by Phil Spencer yesterday, Microsoft and Steam partnership come to mind directly. Although xCloud can run through the browser, it would be much better to see and experience it as an application in itself. Although Steam’s new device (Pre-order) and xCloud system are unfortunately not yet available in our country, we hope that both will come in the future.
