There’s going to be a Microsoft press event on February 25th for both Xbox and Windows 10. It’s unclear if this will simply be Microsoft placing the two platforms in a room together and telling them to kiss, but that seems like a good bet, and quite adorable.
Nobody likes console exclusives. In a perfect world, there wouldn’t be any, because any games that would be a console exclusive would come to PC, too. The perfect neutral ground. Where Bloodborne can be installed on the same hard drive as Halo 5 and the latest Zelda game.
Sure, a utopia like this is wishful thinking at best and madness at worst, but Microsoft is at least heading the in the right direction. We already know that Gears of War: Ultimate Edition will be coming to Windows 10 eventually. As well as Killer Instinct Season 3, ReCore, and just recently Quantum Break was revealed to becoming out same day on both Xbox One and Windows 10. Bigger Xbox Exclusives – namely the Halo franchise – are probably still a ways way from showing up on the PC, but at least we’re making progress. Microsoft has even gone as far as to say that they want more games – like Qunatum Break – to support cross saves across both the Xbox One and Windows 10.
It’s a strange new world. Probably why there’s going to be a Microsoft press event on February 25th to discuss it. People must not be believing their eyes. Phil Spencer himself, head of Xbox, is going to be there to hold people by the hands and show them that video games can be on multiple platforms. Because evidently, some people just don’t know how to react to this and seem angry and confused.
@The_CrapGamer You cancelled a pre-order for a game you want to play because someone else get's to play the game on Windows?

Obviously people like The CrapGamer (fitting name, I might add) are in the minority, even if there were plenty more tweets I could’ve pulled, but you get the point. People are fiercely loyal to their platform, and can’t imagine playing on anything else, be it PS4 or PC.
I’m lover not a fighter, though. Everyone should be able to play all games regardless of their platform.We just need Sony to come join us.
Then we can all hold hands and sing kumbaya.
Except for Nintendo. They’re Nintendo after all. Nothing’s going to change that.
It’s okay I can compromise and buy two consoles. It’s half the number that four is.
