crossbuy with Xbox One would be sooooo cool. Buy it on PC, download it on Xbox One at the same time, mod it on PC, play those mods on Xbox, etc. etc.

That would be awesome. And with Microsoft owned IP, its very possible. But with 3rd party owned IP, its highly unlikely since you'd be asking 3rd parties to give up either their Xbox or PC revenue streams.

Right now, 3rd parties are making revenue off both the PC & Xbox versions of their games. With what your suggesting, 3rd parties would be giving up one of those revenue streams. I don't see that happening

how many people buy multiple copies of the same game , they either buy it on xb1 and if they want to mess around they pirate it on pc , or they just buy the pc version and never touch the console.

Your missing my point. Its not about 1 person buying multiple copies, its about 1 person buying the Xbox version & getting the PC version free or vice/versa and then giving the version they dont use away...

[Example: If I own a PC & my brother owns an XB1 & we both wanted the same game, only 1 purchase would need to be made...That 3rd party would loose revenue]

If Microsoft was indeed trying to unify both platforms, they would have given us Halo 3. But they didn't, now they can say sorry and give us Halo: MCC, that would be nice.

You've got a better chance of getting Uncharted on PC than MCC. lol

We all know that they always lies and its not gonna happen.Halo is not worth anymore just look at the sale on XB1,i rather play some indie games on steam rather than average Halo shooter.

Universal games. One store. One buy. One purchase. Cross play.
