Screenshots Revealed for New Xbox App for Windows 10 and Possible Other Platforms

User Vitor_dlucca shared some screenshots from the current beta version of the new Xbox app that will replace the old Xbox app on Windows 10.

The story is too old to be commented.

Eh, for a desktop app, that's a lot of wasted space IMHO. It might look better when they port it to Android/iOS for mobile, but that's like reading a wordpress that's only tailored towards mobile users for me.

Desktop in general is starting to get treated more for mobile market than anything while the console UI is what I would want to see on Desktop as well.

Xbox brand is getting bigger and better! Windows 10 PC gamers are now part of the Xbox ecosystem and community.

TheColbertinator42d ago

It's the other way around. Xbox games and apps are now becoming part of the PC community which is fine with me.

@TheColbertinator

No it´s not. No when you´re "tied" to a Microsoft account and live services. That´s why i said WINDOWS 10 PC gamers. I´m not talking about those who play via another PC platforms/OS or avoid/hate Microsoft and its games.

Xbox now has FRACTION of the PC community which will help to increase and expand the Xbox userbase by funding new Xbox games and studios while making online matchmaking smooth and easier providing longer and helthier life to each Xbox game servers.

This is a fact!

"That´s why i said WINDOWS 10 PC gamers. "

Ok.....then....

"Xbox games and apps are now becoming part of the Windows 10 community which is fine with me."

That works fine for me as well.

"Xbox now has FRACTION of the PC community.... "

lol....what? Here, let me fix that for you.

"Xbox is now a FRACTION of the PC community.... "

Much better. And now Xbox will fund games for Windows 10, expand the Windows 10 userbase, etc.

Obscure_Observer41d ago

"And now Xbox will fund games for Windows 10, expand the Windows 10 userbase, etc."

Lol. Works for me. As i and many other has been saying: All of Windows 10 PC gamers money has XBOX GAME STUDIOS pockets as destination! Windows 10 PC gamers will be getting PORTS from Xbox One games, no the other way around.

So yeah, Xbox just absorved Windows 10 PC gamers making it part of the Xbox community!

Razzer41d ago (Edited 41d ago )

"Windows 10 PC gamers will be getting PORTS from Xbox One games, no the other way around. "

lol.....Xbox One games are developed on PC and ported to console. But it isn't really a port either way as Xbox One is built on PC tech just like PS4. So not sure what point you think you are making here.

"So yeah, Xbox just absorved Windows 10 PC gamers making it part of the Xbox community!"

Oh really? I must have missed the presser where MS closed Windows 10 and bought Steam, GOG, EGS, etc. Oh...that's right. It didn't happen. Xbox games are now part of the Windows 10 community. You are going to have to let go of this delusion you have that Xbox just took over Windows 10. MS is extending services into its Windows 10 platform and bringing Xbox games along with it. Just see it for what it really is instead of trying to spin some deluded fantasy.

@Razer

Are you excited about Playground´s next game? (That was a rhetorical question. I know you are). I´m just making sure that you know which one leads and which one follows!

"Ease of development in the Xbox One X's make up provides a really great development platform," Fulton said, "not just for that console but also the whole family of devices and even PC."

https://www.ign.com/article...

Now you´re educated. Everytime that you get excited for an Xbox game, you´ll remember that you´ll be getting a PORT from Xbox consoles!

"Oh really? I must have missed the presser where MS closed Windows 10 and bought Steam, GOG, EGS, etc. Oh...that's right. It didn't happen."

That´s you trying to twist my words and creating a false narrative to suit your agenda. Where did i said that Steam, GOG, EGS, etc. is part of the Xbox community?

"You are going to have to let go of this delusion you have that Xbox just took over Windows 10."

Delusion? Lol. Picture this: Everytime you boot an XBOX ONE OR next gen SCARLET game on your PC, you´ll be trapped in pool with US! Not the other way around! Fact!

rainslacker41d ago (Edited 41d ago )

There aren't xbox games being ported to PC. They're directx games with PC builds. There is a distinct difference. Only MS will build its games to the xbox first, then optimize it for the PC version of DX, as both versions have or dont gave things available to the other.

All other studios use a target spec, then do their individual builds, but sometimes those targets will be based on console hardware.

Razzer41d ago (Edited 41d ago )

@Obscure_Observer

LOL. And now let me educate YOU.

https://docs.microsoft.com/...

Every game on Xbox is created on a PC and deployed to the Xbox One for testing/debugging. Fact. The fact that PG is using Xbox One X for its "lead" is really meaningless as there is no "port". The target is still x86 PC regardless of whether it is my PC, a Xbox One X or One S.

"That´s you trying to twist my words and creating a false narrative to suit your agenda. Where did i said that Steam, GOG, EGS, etc. is part of the Xbox community? "

Uh....right here:
"Xbox just absorbed Windows PC gamers". You do know what "absorbed" means in this context, right? If you wouldn't yapp bullshit like this then you would be fine, but I don't think you can help yourself. And you continue this nonsense here:

"Delusion? Lol. Picture this: Everytime you boot an XBOX ONE OR next gen SCARLET game on your PC, you´ll be trapped in pool with US! Not the other way around! Fact!"

lol....you are the only one trapped. Again, let me know when you can play a game outside of the Xbox ecosystem on your Xbox. I can do that anytime I want with PC. And MS has already stated that MCC and more MS games are coming to Steam. lol.....I'm not trapped at all. But you.....your ignorance is really on display right now.

No disrespect, but I rather trust Ralph Fulton input on this matter over yours.

"Ease of development in the Xbox One X's make up provides a really great development platform," Fulton said, "not just for that console but also the whole family of devices and even PC."

"You do know what "absorbed" means in this context, right? If you wouldn't yapp bullshit like this then you would be fine, but I don't think you can help yourself."

I said that "Xbox now has FRACTION of the PC community" do you even know what a fraction means? I didn´t say s$%& about Steam, GOG, EGS or whatever! Again, that´s you trying to twist my words to suit your agenda. Stop with this silly game already!

"lol....you are the only one trapped. Again, let me know when you can play a game outside of the Xbox ecosystem on your Xbox. I can do that anytime I want with PC. And MS has already stated that MCC and more MS games are coming to Steam. lol.....I'm not trapped at all."

Lol! You don´t get it, do you? I said:

"Everytime YOU boot an XBOX ONE OR next gen SCARLET game on your PC, you´ll be trapped in pool with US!"

Stop pretending that you´ll be playing Xbox one games via Steam because you know and i know that things will no go down this route. You can barely hold your excitement over the next Xbox One games which will be shown/announced in a few hours thanks to Phil Spencer, the one you used to crap on. Games like Halo Inifinite from 343i which you also used to crap on for example. You´ll be playing those games day one on Xbox Game Pass Day One since Steam, GOG or EGS doesn´t really have much to keep you hyped about exclusive games for your powerful PC.

So forgive me if i not made myself clear: You´re already trapped in here! With US! You´re confused. You just don´t realized it yet. But you will. Soon.

Razzer41d ago (Edited 41d ago )

"No disrespect, but I rather trust Ralph Fulton input on this matter over yours."

Good then stop yapping about "ports" when he never claimed to be porting anything....because he isn't. That is your bullshit. Not mine and not Fulton's.

"I said that "Xbox now has FRACTION of the PC community" do you even know what a fraction means? I didn´t say s$%& about Steam, GOG, EGS or whatever! Again, that´s you trying to twist my words to suit your agenda. Stop with this silly game already! "

lol...."Xbox now has fraction of the PC community".....that sentence doesn't even make sense, Einstein. You said Xbox "absorbed" PC gamers. Apparently you still don't get that PC gamers are made up primarily of Steam, EGS, and GOG gamers. Try and figure out the rest. Those are your words and this is your silly game. Not mine.

"Stop pretending that you´ll be playing Xbox one games via Steam because you know and i know that things will no go down this route."

lol....oh my. This is too easy.

MCC is an Xbox One collection of Halo games since you seem to be uninformed and entirely out of touch.

Oh....look!

Gears 5 is coming to Steam and it's just the start of Microsoft reaching out to PC gamers

LOL

"You can barely hold your excitement over the next Windows 10 games that will be shown in a few hours.'

Fixed! lol....but yes, it is true. I am looking forward to new games coming to my PC. Stoked even!

"Games like Halo Inifinite from 343i that used to crap on for example. "

lol....I have never "crapped on" Halo Infinite. Why are you making this shit up?

"You´re already trapped in here! With US! You´re confused. You just don´t realized it yet. But you will. Soon. "

I'm afraid you are wrong. I'm free here in PC land and getting more and more options to play games thanks to MS new initiative to put their games on Windows 10 where they should have always been.

I have no idea what this trapped feeling you are describing. It must be a Xbox One thing. I wouldn't understand. But glad to see you are acknowledging that you yourself are truly trapped. Sucks, but all I can do is try to guide you to the freedom PC brings.

"But glad to see you are acknowledging that you yourself are truly trapped. Sucks, but all I can do is try to guide you to the freedom PC brings."

I thank you. But i´m free now. I used to be a PC gamer. I have a respectable library of games on Steam.

Now, i´m a family man and i don´t really have time or the money to deal with PC, its drivers, GPU, CPU, Motherboard, Memory and other divices to keep myself up to date. Xbox One X and PS4 provides all the fun i need for me and my family in one package. The kids are growing fast so i mighty be getting a Switch later this year as well. I´m also looking foward for the next gen consoles so Console gaming for me.

Your concern over PC costs and maintenance are a bit off, but it doesn't matter. Some folks just prefer console. No problems there. You do what works for your family, man. I'm not going to argue with that.

Weird that they chose to use the Xbox console as the app symbol instead of the Xbox logo. I unpinned it from my task bar because I didn't know what the hell it was lol.

Xavi4K42d ago

I think all xbox games will be playable on Pc through this app...it looks like a luncher or something can’t wait for more details!

Teflon0241d ago

Not likely. As the current Xbox App isn't "THAT" different than what you're looking at. It only plays windows 10 games. But keeps track of other games you have on your pc too I think
