Microsoft's video game chief Phil Spencer has announced that they are working on a new app that will work on both Xbox One and Windows 10 PC's that will allow you to run Xbox games on your PC and PC games on your Xbox. The gaming industry is huge dollars so trying to bridge the gap between them is a smart move if they can do it right.
Microsoft also announced that they will be bringing an adaptor out to allow you to hook your wireless Xbox One controller to your PC, which is something people have been waiting for.
ABCNews has more details.
Phil Spencer, head of the company's video game division, detailed Microsoft's plan for game makers to create universal apps that can run on both Xbox One consoles and PCs with Windows 10, as well as smartphones, tablets and other devices running the forthcoming version of Windows. That includes HoloLens, Microsoft's wearable headset that gives wearers the ability to interact with three-dimensional images.
"Our goal with gaming at Microsoft is to allow people to play games wherever they are," Spencer told game makers Wednesday at the Game Developers Conference. "We know for developers that it's critically important for you to reach those gamers wherever they are."
