A press release for the announcement states that “Xbox is working with global TV manufacturers to embed the Xbox experience directly into internet-connected televisions with no extra hardware required except a controller.”
Your smart TV may be about to get Xbox Game Pass, it seems. Ahead of the E3 2021 expo, Microsoft and Xbox have hinted at the future of the Game Pass platform, confirming that it could soon arrive on living room TVs without a need for an Xbox Series X or Xbox Series S console.
That means smart TVs from the likes of Samsung, LG, Sony, Hisense and TCL could all get a native Xbox Game Pass app that sits alongside YouTube, Netflix, and Disney Plus, allowing you to try out any of the 300+ games in the growing Game Pass library within the same smart TV platform – without a console. You will need an Xbox controller or Xbox-compatible gamepad, of course, but the potential disruption here to living room gaming is huge.
