Microsoft is slowly bringing Xbox Game Pass here more and more devices via cloud streaming. This was the phone before. Until recently it was some brands of smart TVs like Samsung. Earlier this year, the company confirmed that it is working on a small add-on that people can buy to stream games on any display. It’s called Keystone, and so far Microsoft hasn’t revealed what it looks like, possibly until today.
“Vault Boy left the shelter and stopped by my office to celebrate #Fallout25 anniversary,” Spencer tweeted With a picture of a bunch of Xbox swag on a shelf. “Congratulations to the @Fallout @Bethesda teams on this major milestone for an iconic franchise.” However, the Microsoft executive has made a habit of teasing the upcoming show in the background of his photos, and it didn’t take long for fans to notice a strange-looking white device near the top:

It’s still unclear what the company meant by this, and it’s always possible that Spencer’s photo today was either 1.) not meant to tease anything or 2.) was teasing something completely different from Keystone. . Microsoft is also reportedly working on a standalone optical drive attachment for the all-digital versions of its Xbox Series X/S. Both seem impossible.
