Windows 10 will close the gap between the PC and the Xbox One

Despite the fact that Windows powers the vast majority of the gaming rigs out there and the Xbox controls a significant portion of the console market, Microsoft has never made a real effort to bring the two platforms together. However, that’s all going to change with Windows 10, confirming earlier reports that the company would be focusing especially hard on gaming with its new operating system. 

The artificial wall between Xbox players and PC gamers will get torn down with Microsoft’s upcoming Windows 10, which allows streaming of Xbox One games to PCs and even lets gamers on the two disparate platforms play together. The announcement was one of several made by Microsoft to show the company’s commitment to PC gamers. “We will treat gaming on Windows 10 with as much passion and energy as we have on the Xbox One,” said Phil Spencer, the Xbox One division chief Phil Spencer. In addition to streaming games long confined to the Xbox One, Spencer showed off DirectX 12 on Windows 10 and announced a new game DVR feature that will be built into the new OS as well.
