It might be too complicated for its own good.
We can all agree that Games with Windows was a disaster but Microsoft learned their lessons and as an owner of a fairly decent gaming pc and and Xbox One I am very glad Microsoft is delivering on that 'Oneness' (for lack of a better word) with my Xbox One and PC. Looking forward to trying these new features out
The Oneness would be better if there's more crossplat play.
Kinda funny how PS4 offers more games that support cross-multiplayer than Microsoft does. Microsoft could simplify this by releasing a WindowsBox that works like a SteamBox as a console/PC hybrid.
MS is just getting started, the platform just released a couple days ago... give it some time. Fable legends will be the start of that, and its also free for both systems.
@gamer7804 What Fable Legends is free? Is it a f2p game? Or a real free game?
@ nX What PS4 games are crossplay? I know Final Fantasy XIV is and Street Fighter 5 will be next year.
^Rocket League, War Thunder and Warframe definitely support it. Maybe DC Universe and Planetside 2 as well, not sure... but it should be more than on XB1 currently.
@ dantesparda Fable Legends will be a Free To Play game.
@gamer7804 Also have Killer Instinct and Gigantic that will feature crossplay. I doubt Gears Of War Ultimate will without the Xbox One mouse support.
Another xbox mistake article. LOL
Let me fix your comment: Another Microsoft Mistake article LOL. I agree with you..anything to make it seem like a bad thing. Its beneficial to gamers and MS. One ecosystem between all platforms. I am just waiting for the horror articles to start popping up.
The smart thing Microsoft could do is release a new more powerfull hybrid console that runs Windows and Xbox One games all in one.
I think that is there plan for next gen.
The Xbox App is cool and only took me few minutes to learn how to use. Its optional so if you don't like then don't use it.
It's a smart move. I really like how they are working on playing PC games on Xbox One. Phil said it is a challenge they are excited to take on. That would be amazing if they could do that. It's already pretty cool to play your xbox one games on windows 10 devices.
If you've seen the Xbox app or streamed a game to your pc you'd be a believer!
i want microsoft to set up windows 10 to allow the games to be playable on all windows 10 devices (whether it's a disc or download). for example: if i buy halo 5 via disc or download, i should be able to take that halo 5 disc and put it into my woindows 10 pc and if i got it digitally, i should be able to type in my gamertag id and info and have the game show up on either device and play on each device. the hardware differences of each machine should naturally calibrate itself. it would be no different from using pc's. if i take call of duty for the pc (or any game for that matter) and load it up on a mid range pc and then pop the same call of duty disc out and and put it into a high end pc, the game will run fine on both machines, but the high end pc will the game to run better, but the point is, they both can run the game with no problem. i want microsoft to make this happen with windows 10 and the pc/console thing that they've got going on. and im sure it's possible. i think that it would be more of a licensing thing more so than anything, but the hardware of the machines wouldn't be the issue. the x1 is strong enough to run any pc game on low to mid range pc settings (it can do the required basic output with the required basic specs).
They were going to do something like that remember DRM? I was all for it but people that were never going to buy the system to begin with got pissed off
Lol always fanboy journalists that write these articles.
Cool trollbait headline, bro.
