It’s confirmed, sometime in the future Microsoft will be meshing the Windows 10 operating system into the Xbox One console. What’s the purpose? Sharing applications across devices and platforms, of course.
This could be a good move on Microsoft’s part. Except, according to the head of team Xbox, Phil Spencer assured that the games platform wouldn’t be compromised by enterprise-centric and desktop-focused applications. Mr. Spencer did have something to say as well:
We won’t see people using Excel on the Xbox, but Microsoft is making it easier to port experiences from PC over to Xbox where they make sense…
We’ll treat gaming on Windows 10 with the same passion as we’ve put into the Xbox console.
That’s basically all that was said. There are no details as to how Windows 10 will operate nor how interactive it will be. Sigh.
However, Phil Spencer did mention more details will be available this March, during the Games Developer’s Conference.
On a side note, in case you don’t know, here’s some facts about Windows 10 OS. You will be able to stream Xbox One games. Also, if you’re a customer and own Windows 7 and up, you can get Windows 10 for free but only for the first year. This also applies to you Windows phone owners. Lastly Cortana, Microsoft’s voice-activated personal assistant, will be available on Windows 10 for PC.
Stay tuned for more soon.
