XBLA Fans may not seem the proper venue for a bit of PC gaming news, but Microsoft has given us reason to talk about that other platform it’s known for. And it’s probably going to give us even more reasons to do so at this year’s E3.
Most Xbox fans are already aware that Microsoft is set to make its annual E3 media briefing on Monday, June 15 at 9:30 AM PDT, during which time the console holder will show off its console gaming plans for the second half of 2015 and beyond. But that won’t be the only media briefing Microsoft will take part in this E3. Microsoft will also make an appearance at the first ever PC Gaming Show, which starts on Tuesday, June 16 at 5 PM EST.
Microsoft has joined chip maker AMD in co-sponsoring the event being put on by the folks over at PC Gamer. Xbox head honcho Phil Spencer will be joined by some game developers to share Microsoft’s plans for spelling Xbox as Windows 10.
All eyes were on Microsoft a few days ago as the tech giant revealed Windows 10, HoloLens and many more shiny new things. Xbox fans (like us) were rewarded with the announcement that Windows 10 is coming to Xbox One, and a whole lot of features will be coming with it. Your PC is about to become the ultimate companion to your living room entertainment.
Perhaps the biggest announcement is that you will be able to stream your Xbox One games to any Windows 10 device, like a laptop or Surface tablet. Nintendo and Sony have already demonstrated the value of this coveted feature, but your tablet will make a bigger screen than a Wii U GamePad or a Vita. You just need a good spot to prop it.
There will also be games playable on both platforms, starting with Fable Legends. Game DVR will be accessible from your PC where a mouse and keyboard make better editing tools. And, DirectX 12 should make a big difference to graphics with its optimization black magic. Check it out in the video below:
