Over the last few weeks, Microsoft has been ramping up the hype machine for XO19, promising announcements from first-party Xbox Game Studios, new titles for Game Pass and more in the ‘biggest Inside Xbox episode ever’. There were indeed quite a few big announcements, including new IP from Obsidian and Rare, Project xCloud updates, Halo: Reach’s PC release date, Age of Empires IV gameplay and more. 
Now with all of those game announcements out of the way, Microsoft also had a few key updates for Project xCloud. For starters, testing will be expanding to Windows 10 PCs next year and Microsoft will be adding in support for more Bluetooth controllers, so you will be able to play games using a third-party gamepad from the likes of Razer, or even Sony’s own Dualshock 4. More invites are being sent out to those who signed up to the insider program and expansion to other countries is planned to begin next year.
Those getting into the testing phase now will also have a lot more to play, as the Project xCloud catalogue has expanded to include over 50 games. The library now includes titles like Forza Horizon 4, Devil May Cry V, Tekken 7, Hellblade: Senua’s Sacrifice, DayZ, Dead by Daylight, Shadow of the Tomb Raider, ARK: Survival Evolved, Borderlands: The Handsome Collection, HITMAN Season 1, Just Cause 4 and more. EA has also announced a partnership with Microsoft, which starts off with bringing Madden 20 to xCloud with three more games to come in early 2020.
I'm personally curious if this is going to be a successful project

    SO far, I haven't seen a ton that I don't already own or are all that good.
     Best I found so far on my  3 months trial  was Gears 4, Gears 5  & the Outer Worlds 
    maybe next year they will have some better offerings for me, and I'll retry a subscription trial again .?
