I love my Surface Duo, yes it has its flaws, but I put up with them for benefits of having dual screens. Just as using multiple monitors with a PC, once you get used to dual screens going back to a single screen is hard.
Microsoft have just announced that the Xbox gaming app for the Duo is getting dual screen support with the controls on the lower screen and the game on the upper, turning the device is it a mini-gaming machine via Xbox game streaming.
A very cool update goes live for #SurfaceDuo customers today! Working with @Xbox we’ve put touch controls on to the second screen. More than 50 games are available to play with touch for @xboxGamePass Ultimate Members. pic.twitter.com/ZPIqQZXxS4

I tried gaming with the Surface Duo latest year and was impressed using it to stream my Xbox at home to the device but the new feature is using with Xbox gaming streaming from the cloud.
Here is my video from last year where I demo streamed Forza Horizon to my Surface Duo from my Xbox One which are on the same network.
