Microsoft announced over a year ago that it was bringing Xbox apps to Windows 10 PCs, and that would allow cross-platform play and a cohesive friends list across both platforms. In November, the Xbox One was updated to be compatible with Windows 10.At the dotNet conference in January this year in Madrid Satya Nadella said UWAs would be coming to Xbox One. And most recently at a press event in San Francisco, head of the company’s Xbox division Phil Spencer said the UWP would be central to the company’s gaming strategy.He also added that upgradable Xbox One hardware would make the idea of ‘generational’ console releases is a thing of the past. Doesn’t that sound like a PC?
