The Xbox division shares a fun fact about the preferred gaming method of Xbox Cloud Gaming users. As they reveal, at least 20% of the community use the touch controls of mobile devices over the traditional remote.
“20% of Xbox Cloud Gaming players use touch control as the exclusive method to play games,” explains Monty Hernández, senior program manager at Xbox, in statements to The Verge. “As such, it is important to us that touch-enabled games are relevant and above all play well with this control method ”.

Another interesting fact is the number of people who use only the buttons on the screen to play the next game. 30% of those who play the following games dispense with the command:
- Yakuza: Like a Dragon
- Dragon Quest XI
- Scarlet Nexus
- Football Manager 2022 Xbox Edition
- New Super Lucky’s Tale
“We have seen, in general, an increase in double use of the games available on Xbox Cloud Gaming, across all genres, that implement touch controls ”, concludes Hernández. You can find out which games offer this control by going to the corresponding tab within the Xbox Cloud Gaming menu.
The list is made up of games of all kinds. We can see a good part of the Yakuza franchise, Wreckfest, Wasteland 3, The Medium, Pillar’s of Eternity, NieR: Automata and Minecraft Dungeons, among others. Function also moves to backward compatible titles for Xbox 360 and Xbox. Psychonauts, Fable Anniversary, and Banjo-Kazooie are just some of the examples.
From the division they usually maintain a monthly rhythm of additions to this catalog, which serve as a complement to the announcements of the new incorporations. Depending on the game they usually have a layout personalized that helps improve the experience.
