    For xCloud I was able to sideload the app on to my firestick but since I don't have an bluetooth Xbox controller I couldn't play anything. I wouldn't doubt if they allow Amazon to have it on their store or and like Brad said I think they'll have an app on Roku. I also think they'll have an app on Google TV meaning the new Chromecast that's coming out and Nvidia Shield. I also wouldn't doubt if they have it on the Nintendo Switch.

    I have the thought that Series X will be $550, or at least $50 above the PS5. It would sound like a coup for Sony, until Microsoft releases Lockhart at $150+ less than the PS5. The fans will always buy the Series X, it'll be really aimed at the people who will buy it at any price, and Microsoft would be able to recoup the production costs of the Series X quicker. It would be easier to take a larger loss on the Lockhart, as it'll be produced cheaper than the Series X, and will be the consumer product anyway. Throw in 3-6 months of Game Pass, and suddenly that extra $50 doesn't sound so much/makes the Lockhart that more valuable.
