Phil Spencer reveals Xbox streaming device codenamed ‘Keystone’

Phil Spencer has done it again, revealing an upcoming piece of Xbox hardware sitting on his famous office shelf. This time around, we get a direct look at the company's upcoming streaming device, codenamed ‘Xbox Keystone'. 

Microsoft confirmed that it is working on a cheap, dedicated streaming box for TVs back in May 2022, which will release as part of the company's efforts to bring Xbox to every screen around the world. As spotted by The Verge, we can see this streaming box in the latest picture of Phil Spencer's office shelf, which he posted in celebration of Fallout's 25th anniversary today:

The focus of the image is the Vault Boy, but if you take a look at Spencer's top shelf, we see a small, very suspicious white box with the Xbox logo on it. As The Verge points out, this is Microsoft's planned streaming device and looks very close to the render revealed earlier this year.

This device will give access to Xbox Cloud Gaming, and may also grant access to other media apps available on Xbox consoles, like Netflix or Disney Plus. Aside from this, Microsoft is also working on bringing Xbox Cloud Gaming to TVs via other means, including a dedicated Smart TV app, which recently debuted on a select number of Samsung TVs.

KitGuru Says: Xbox has been very focused on providing value to users over the last few years, so I'd be surprised if Keystone ended up being a costly device. Personally, I'm hoping to see a Keystone and controller bundle around the $100 mark, which could be excellent for all those customers Google just abandoned with Stadia.
