During Microsoft’s Window’s 10 event earlier this week, the company’s Phil Spencer revealed that their newest PC operating system, Windows 10, will support Xbox One game streaming later this year.

“Wouldn’t it be great if we could play those [Xbox One games] anywhere in the house?” Spencer said. “We have to put the gamer at the center of every experience.”

Windows 10 will allow game streaming to any device that runs the operating system, including PCs, notebooks, and tablets, with Windows Phone support potentially coming later. Once you have synced up your Xbox One with another device, the service will work with any game, including console-exclusive titles.

Let us know in the comments below if this is something you’ll be capitalizing on when Windows 10 launches later this year.

  • That’s pretty cool. Now people really don’t need that Steam Box after all.

      Haha, I would still choose PC gaming anyday thanks to Steam sales!

  • Damn I wish I would have built my pc on a windows 10 OS. Streaming through the One sucks.

      Ah, it’s a really cool concept in my mind, but I won’t be upgrading to a new OS anytime soon. Windows operating systems are always filled with bugs at launch unfortunately :/

      • exactly. But for me i wanna get into streaming really bad so i love the idea

          I can’t wait until it replaces consoles altogether and we have a roku like streaming box or something with the Xbox app and the PlayStation app. Those will be the days!
