My husband loves those games! (It's the only game he plays on our Xbox One)

kaiserfranz1351d ago

It looks like he would have reason to ditch XB1 then if this comes true. I personally hope it does, I don't see myself buying an Xbox One any time soon but I would love to play Forza.

Besides, there's a lot of money to be made on PC with good games and Microsoft wouldn't even have to give a cut to Valve like the other publishers who use Steam.

Crimzon1351d ago

Yeah, I'd buy Forza if it released on Steam, provided Microsoft didn't force any DX12 requirements and restrict it to Windows 10 only. Same goes for Forza horizon as well. They look like genuinely fun racing games and if they put them on PC they'll be seeing money from me :)

ProjectVulcan1351d ago (Edited 1351d ago )

Forza is the one game I would be bothered buying an Xbox One for. I always wanted it on PC, a dream come true so that I wouldn't have to bother with Xbox any more but it seems unlikely.

Microsoft should start up supporting PC again properly with Windows 10 by dishing out some big Microsoft studio titles for the platform. It's a bit of a pipe dream really but hey.

@kaisrfranz

I agree that they should release more stuff to PC. It's money left on the table. Not everyone has a gaming rig computer so Xbox will still sell to those who want a simple under-the-TV solution, otherwise those who never intended can still give money to MS

@Crimzon

So you would buy this if it DIDN'T take advantage of the newest available technology? Would you also not complain if it didn't look better than Project Cars? Windows 10 is free, DX12 free with it. Don't say dumb things.

@vulcanproject

Agreed. I like my Xbox so will get it there, but for those who don't feel the desire having it available to PC players makes sense.

Dee_911351d ago

Damn, if this is legit good thing I waited on getting a xboxone.. and my pc budget just went up lol

Forza PC would be nuts....I actually want them to do it.

Alexious1351d ago

I think everyone would want them to do it, except those XB1 fanboys who can't see further than their nose.

We'd have a bigger and happier community playing together.

Dee_911351d ago

Would be epic if it came with multiplayer crossplay.

@Alexious
Yea.. only the fanboys right?Critical thinking on your part bud /s.. Funny I don't even have a xbox one but I don't like the idea of a flagship title going multiplat.

RoKStevonidas1351d ago

I wonder if we will get the Jimmy Fallon E3 Edition or a port of the downgraded mess that was actually released?

Gamer19821351d ago

If it does then they literally only have Halo left as a AAA established exclusive. I can see it happening though with MS slowly moving Xbox over To W10 to save on hardware and the feeling they are evolving to more than just a console.

Kribwalker1351d ago

I would welcome this. With PC cross play, universal apps, and more the XBox One is becoming like a Steam Box, but better, as it has all the console exclusives plus would be cool for them to start porting games over from PC to Xbox with ease with DX12. The future is now with Xbox

kraenk121350d ago

Seriously...The Forza games always were the only reason to ever think about getting an XBox. If this becomes true and I suspect it will I will be such an happy chap.

Zeref1350d ago

Stop lying... You're just saying that cuz there is a possibility of it happening.

But deep down. You know you want Gears,Halo, Quantum Break, Scalebound, Phantom Dust and Fruit Ninja kinect.

Zeref1350d ago

@Crimzon

Why would you not like it if its only on Windows 10? It's a FREE upgrade that's better than Windows 7 and 8.

If its coming to PC its definitely gonna be exclusive to Windows 10 and probably with Xbox One to PC play too.

Little off-topic:

Phil Spencer said that they are seriously looking at the possibility of Xbox One running PC games. Imagine that. If that happens Xbox wins this gen by default.

The Bajillion of exclusive PC games all available on Xbox One.

Forza will not come to PC that has been said already

the_dark_one1351d ago

Xbox one will not be sold without kinect, thats has been said already. See where im going. Not saying it will but.....

RiseofScorpio1351d ago

Don Mattrick said that. When Phil became head it was unbundled immediately.

Imp0ssibl31351d ago

It has been said, yes. It's in the article, they said:

We have no plans of releasing Microsoft Studios Xbox One titles on PC.

That was one year ago. Now they do, they're releasing Fable Legends day and date with crossplay and they're also releasing Xbox Live on Windows 10 basically.
A Turn10 developer is also going to speak in a session about "developing games on W10"....

Not saying it's necessarily true, but I can definitely see it happening.

freshslicepizza1351d ago

i could see it happening, microsoft is wanting to push windows 10 and most money is made off of software and services, not hardware.

the xbox one will always have an audience even if these games come to the pc. want proof? look at the top selling games on consoles, most can be bought on the pc.

Elit3Nick1351d ago

Fable 1 and 3 were on Windows, so therefore it was never an Xbox exclusive series to begin with.

TheNew11350d ago

@moldybread

Push windows 10 and forget about Xbox? And what pushing, windows 10 is already FREE there's not much more pushing you can do.

freshslicepizza1350d ago (Edited 1350d ago )

@TheNew1

how are they forgetting the xbox if forza comes to the pc? that makes no sense at all. windows 10 also works with the xbox so how is that forgetting the xbox one?

microsoft wants you to belong to their ecosystem. windows 10, xbox, xbox live, skype, cloud services. these are all areas they can make money off of consumers and windows 10 is not free for everyone. they are offering a free upgrade for a one year period to those who want to upgrade from windows 7 and 8.1. do you know how many millions still use xp?

elazz1351d ago

With PC gaming on the rise and games selling nearly equal numbers as on a console I guess from a Financial standpoint it would indeed be better to release on PC.

kaiserfranz1351d ago (Edited 1351d ago )

Absolutely, no question about that. And it looks like finally MS is noticing the treasure trove that is the PC gaming market and wants to get a big chunk of it.

LavaLampGoo1351d ago

Sounds promising, but not my favourite series but Burnout seems to be over nowadays

Mostafeto1351d ago

Forza on PC is going to be awesome and I admit Burnout was a great series that turned dead way too soon as it had the potential to become a classic my favorite car games of all time till now are Driveclub and Burnout Paradise

BlackPhillip6661351d ago

Probably another windows 10 deal if it goes threw :/. Im all for games crossing over but as with every new windows release i don't like being held to ransom on games i can and can not play esp when I'm sitting here with a gtx980 on windows 8 :D.

ProjectVulcan1351d ago

All I will say is go and find out how much the Windows 10 upgrade will cost for Windows 7 and 8 users.

You might be pleasantly surprised.

Alexious1351d ago

Yeah, it's going to be free. Which ties into everything as Microsoft wants to dominate utterly with Windows10 and having two killer applications like Fable Legends and a Forza game would go a long way towards convincing gamers that Microsoft is serious about PC once again.

kaiserfranz1351d ago

@ninjamonkey: that means you have to upgrade for free in the first year and then it's yours forever

Utalkin2me1351d ago

Its not totally free, free for the first year. And more then likely will require a yearly subscription fee.

Str8Chaos741351d ago

No, you have a year to upgrade to Windows 10 from 7 or 8 for free. Once you do this it is free for the life of the device.

mcstorm1351d ago (Edited 1351d ago )

@Utalkin2me no there is a time limit where you can upgrade for free. So you have 12 months from when windows 10 comes out to upgrade to it and if you don't upgrade to it within 12 months of it being out you will have to pay for a copy. If you upgrade in the 1st 12 months there is no charge at all.
