Gaming, as a whole, has drastically changed over recent years as online streaming offerings become much more affordable and convenient to gamers, regardless of the platform they use.
Microsoft has reportedly been obtaining popular live gaming streaming services, as well as purchasing gaming subscription services. These will most likely become a part of the Xbox Live game pass subscription services in the near future.
Furthermore, Microsoft has also taken over Discord, which is a chat functionality used mostly by gamers during live streaming in order to communicate with each other. And, on top of that, Microsoft has also paid interest in obtaining Mixer, which is the biggest rival to Twitch, which is a social media network for streaming gaming content.
It seems as if Microsoft wants to combine all these offerings and services into one major one-stop-shop for all things gaming. And, if they get this right, no other company would come close to Microsoft and Xbox in terms of gaming, or at least not for a while!
