I've been telling people this for ages. when people compare exclusives and they say "that's not an exclusive because it's on pc" well xbox one and pc are both windows 10 platforms. I know you can push graphics loads further on a high end pc I just chose to go with xbox one over pc as it is more cost effective and convenient for me.

PC'S are amazing, but you're right, what those elitists don't understand is the convenience of a console. I'd love to drop a bunch of money on a really nice rig, but it's just not practical for me. Besides, I'd miss out on all the console exclusives.

They are still separate platforms. Do PC games work on the Xbox or vice-versa? Nope. If that day comes, your argument will have merit.

Windows is the operating platform you have to look at the distribution platform like Steam, Origin or the now defunct Games for windows (now windows store).
