One app for multiple platforms.

So a game developer writes code for Windows, but it works on pc, Xbox One, and Windows Phone. So they get a huge ecosystem to sell their games

Consumers pay once and get to enjoy the app on all platforms.

* Basically for the same one price, developers can have their games on phones, XB1 & PC.

That is HUGE incentive to make a game for anyone of those or all of them.

* PC/Console gamers can play phone games without having to get a phone.

* Phone gamers can play certain special versions of the PC & Console games, obviously with limited controls.

* Expands the number of games available for each platform.

Meh. If it can run on a phone then it isn't that exciting Imo. Certainly not a negative against the console, just not that exciting.

Get to the real gaming stuff!
