Xbox cloud gaming has officially launched for Fire TV sticks, offering a cost-effective way to enjoy the latest game releases. You can play games directly through the Xbox app, but there are a few conditions to note.

Firstly, this service is available only for Xbox Game Pass Ultimate subscribers. This is the priciest tier, costing around US$17 per month. This subscription allows you to access a vast library of games, including the latest AAA titles and popular indie games.

Device compatibility

Currently, the service works with the Fire TV Stick 4K and Fire TV Stick 4K Max. These devices were released recently, and Xbox has indicated that more devices will be compatible. The Fire TV Stick 4K Max was already considered ideal for retro gaming, and now it extends its functionality to AAA gaming.

Controller requirements

To use this service, you will need a compatible Bluetooth-enabled wireless controller. Fortunately, there are many options available. Choosing a controller with a familiar Xbox button layout, such as the Nimbus+ or Stratus+ controllers, is recommended. However, any controller with the right buttons and Bluetooth capabilities, including actual Xbox gamepads, should work.

With the right subscription and equipment, you can enjoy Xbox Game Pass Ultimate, arguably the best game streaming platform. It offers access to a massive library of games, including recent AAA releases like “Starfield” and “Forza Horizon 5” as well as popular indie titles like “Sea of Stars” and “Death's Door.” Like any streaming service, the game titles may rotate in and out.

Additional benefits

A Game Pass Ultimate subscription also provides:

  • Access to online multiplayer gaming.
  • Day-one releases of new games.
  • Various discounts.

Subscribers even receive a bonus EA Play membership, adding more value to the service.

In summary, Xbox cloud gaming on Amazon Fire TV sticks is an exciting development for gaming enthusiasts. You can enjoy various games from the comfort of your home by meeting the subscription and device requirements.
