    • Same here, I believe one of the PlayStation consoles has steam as an app so you could play steam games on the console but sadly not xbox.

  1. This article fails to mention that you FIRST need to purchase the $50 “Microsoft Wireless Display Adapter V2 receiver”. Once you shell out the $50, it’s not specific to Steam because it will stream ANYTHING from any device to your XBOX.

  2. It’s sure there today. I got it installed on the Xbox at home from work, will try streaming Anthem (Origin not Steam) when I get home.

  3. got the notification that this is a thing again, and cant set it up, or get my computer to detect my xbox. There are a bunch of instructionals out there, but none are too clear.
