Certainly the future seems promising for Xbox due to the alternatives that are being prepared by those of Redmond. Little by little Microsoft is laying the foundations for the future.
Xbox Play Anywhere is definitely a nice option. It adds value I can use, and not value that I cannot use like artificial exclusivity. MS should be praised for this controversial program.
We need more Play Anywhere titles.
I agree. I have a PC (not so good really) and a PS4 (two, in fact) so, Play Anywhere is welcome.
1000 games. That's a lot of shovelware. I don't really see how Indie developers benefits from this program. It good for the gamers, but bad for the developers sales wise in my opinion.
Pancit_Canton- You missing the whole benefit of play anywhere for developers! For instance my guy bought a disk final fantasy and Horizon! I bought Nier and halo wars 2 .. we just beat each other games and switch out .. we basically buy 2 games for 4 every time.,, second example I buy so many used games from Craigslist and pay 30 35 dollars beat the game and resale.,, see developers are loosing so much money from this method ... A lot of money how much look back at Xbox one launch they wanted no disks!!! So the play anywhere feature defeats those methods I explained... I bought gears of 4 , recore anywhere digital both us bought it individual the developers getting its profit,,, it's so many horizon on the Craigslist from PS4 imagine the sales if Xbox one and PS4 when digital only???
It's a fan site like every other incredible site, let them express their incredible joy.
Glad to see MS at the forefront with Indie developers, I know the start of this gen was the opposite, however last gen Indies and and MS shared amazing partnerships. Fast forward to present day, MS and indies share that synergy which will have long term positive effects..
Forefront? I think your getting a little ahead of yourself... PS4 still has more indie games and developers.
Im too lazy to research... But to take part in this, all you need is an active xbl account?
I had one anyway so I can't say if it would work without it or not but making an account is the most you would have to do if necessary and if you have a hotmail address you're already set up.
Let's be positive for once about our system.I don't hate Sony,i just love my Xbox.
@andrewsquall "@timotim And yet you managed to leave out the major fact that you get to play a substantially BETTER looking version of the game NOT on Xbox" That all depends on the power of your PC though doesn't it, I mean this whole Play Anywhere is all good and well if you have beast of the PC that can play Forza 5 @4K etc etc. But if you only have an average PC, then more than likely the game will look better on your console.
