Exactly, I've been thinking of this for while, will they update the W8 for W9 on X1 ?

oSHINSAo1135d ago

i guess W9 will support DX12, so, i will go with yes, the will update it ...

The X1 OS is not exactly W8, it is a heavily modified and stripped down version, MS will carry on modifying it over it's life cycle by adding new features and upgrading existing parts, but you cant say it is W8,W9 or WX. It's just the X1 OS VX.X.

Exactly. The XB1 OS is much more like a Windows Phone with Live Tiles than the traditional "Metro/Modern UI" associated with Windows 8.

I don't see it getting a Windows 9 overhaul like desktops will, but changes are coming. They have to implement Threshold so that all Windows Store games can be playable on all platforms.

for $199 you can have 2 extra features.

Hopefully windows 9 is a free upgrade or like a $20 upgrade for windows 8 users or it can screw off. Windows over charges just like most of these other software makers. Windows 9 meet ThePirateBay.

i dunno anyone who pays for computer software anymore

DragoonsScaleLegends1135d ago

I want to pay and support but some of these companys expect you to be filthy rich and there are plenty of free alternatives.

...and this is why PC people b*tch and moan when some games don't come to PC.

...and this is why PC people b*tch and moan that the focus on gaming is on consoles.

Nobody is sure some people think dx12 might not be supported with windows 7. Windows 8 and 8.1 more likely.

I'll be upgrading with every new OS you gain a extra few frames with games, higher resolutions, and more memory can be used.

dx12 and how good it will be windows 9 is anyones guess. Not sure if xb1 will be updated to windows 9?

Mikeyy1135d ago

Just a few months ago I made the jump to windows 8. Because I heard 8.1 was solid and fixed a lot of them complaints. Now we're talking about windows 9 already. Ugh..

SegaGamer1135d ago

I have only just upgraded to Windows 7 from XP ( upgraded about a year ago ) There is no way i am going to go with Windows 8, it's awful. Windows 9 i will never be ready for. I am perfectly happy with Windows 7.

I'm only 25 and Microsoft have released 18 different windows operating systems. That is way too much to keep up with.............well, unless you are rich that is.
