What games will this be able to play? Are there decent games on the windows app store this can run, or what's the deal here?
"using the power of Windows 10 in-house streaming for PC, Steam and Xbox One games." - so it's a weak tablet that is meant for steam in-house streaming?

It's full Windows, so whatever you can find that'll actually run.

Well that's the thing, isn't it - what games can you actually run on an Intel Atom CPU, that'd be mainly 3-5+ year old games, and maybe 2D platformers?
Edited by: "Lahn" 15th Dec 2016

Could be good for running old game collections on emulators I suppose.

it can run older pc games, I've recently played gone home and psychonauts on mine, there is a list of compatible games on a forum , a Google search should find it.

I am assuming if you have an Xbox One you can stream to this? Especially if you have a partner who hogs the TV and wants to watch crap like dinner date!

Based on the pictures from Argos, it would seem that you could play Gears of War 4, Forza Horizon 3 and Recore. It would require decent WiFi to play it smoothly but most people nowadays have reasonable internet speeds.

S d

steam stream!

heat just brought one for my oldest as was this price a few weeks back keep him off my tv

Heat added.

If it's not got wirelss A/C then forget about in home streaming. I've been trying to get that working on a Linx 10 tablet with very poor results.
Update: According to the Linx website, the specs include Wireless AC. Fill yer boots!

It works in the same way as a normal tablet so yes, it is wireless.

Not really what they mean...

got one of these. it basiclly use to steam xbox game and steam games. it work smooth without lag. u only need 9mb upload speed thou which must wifi or internal network would have.

I have this for steam in home streaming from my PC (not tried yet) xbox streaming (works great) & a 128gb sd card for local install of steam for when I travel, can play games like Batman Arkham City, also installed Kodi (has micro HDMI out) and the battery is pretty good compared to my Nexus 9. Controller is not the most comfortable thing to hold. Bought it for £80 when it was on HUKD some time ago.

What do they mean?
The tablet is wireless and would only require charging so I would class that as wireless would you not?
You don't need to have an iPad or Amazon Fire attached to the mains to use it.

you don't need fast internet.... you just need a good internal modem

doesn't matter how fast BT or virgin or whoever sends you the internet from external, just how fast the router you have is to send internal

if your router has AC then wow this might be really good. I connect my pc via Ethernet to get best steam streaming on my netbooks

wonder how good the controller is for games?

anyone can say eg xcom 2 or gta v? screen size probably too small but an idea

Look online, seen a video of tomb raider played really well on it.

best pc game I could get running was jet set radio... it doesn't support 64 bit games so most recent titles won't run on this thing. decent tablet though in terms of build quality. the controller is a bit cheap feeling though

Looks like a good deal. I'll be watching this thread with some interest.

​Wireless AC is a type of networking for increased Wi-Fi speeds, one step above wireless N. You'd need that for the network-hungry job of streaming a game through your wireless router. He didn't mean wireless alternating current

I play the following:

with joypad attachment:
Skyrim (potato mod)
Fallout NV
Geometry wars 3

just touchscreen:
Civ BE
shadowrun returns

Anyone know if It is possible to remote play PS4 on this? if so will it perform better than PSTV?

Although this has a 64-bit processor, from what I've read, it only run 32-bit Windows, so not any good if your game requires 64-bit.

Does New Vegas run OK on this? I assume you are running those game locally and not over remote play, right?

Hmmm this or the blaze tab plus... I'm after a decent hand held with controls that I can play emulators on (Inc dreamcast) I'd appreciate any suggestions? I'm edging towards the blaze tab plus.

I use this to stream the Xbox to. Quality is good, no lag. I've streamed FIFA, Battlefield 1 and my daughter has also played Minecraft on it. Controller takes a bit of getting used to, or if you're not far away from your Xbox, just use your Xbox controller, but you'll need to prop the tablet up with a case/stand.
Just a heads up anyone who gets one, -you'll need to do a few Windows updates before the Xbox app will work.

A decent Android tablet or phone can do that.

Can you play this away from your Xbox One using an Xbox controller .
Ive watched some youtube videos but its not covering it.
Seriously tempted for my son - but im not sure he could use the controller on the device.
Also could this be used for roblox? Thanks

Streaming usually is done on the same network, meaning that you should be in the vicinity of your home or place where the Xbox is located and , yes you could pair a different controller with the tablet should you wish

Streaming over a the internet would not yet be stable , it could technically be achieved but its not advised

Spark

This hands down , better spec and controls
