Microsoft has been trying to make Windows a welcoming platform for gamers and to do so have been making their way into the PC Gaming scene with the Xbox Play Anywhere and now are planning to improve even more with the Windows Store.
The Windows Store is a place where you can get various apps for your Windows PC including games. A lot of the games available can be played on your Xbox and PC with only a single purchase if you get them from here and most of the Xbox exclusive titles are available for PC on this store. However, the store is pretty barebones and users dislike interacting with it. Microsoft seems to be taking this feedback as seen from Phil Spencer’s statement at XO18.
“I think we’ve got a ton of work to do on Windows. And Windows is something that I’m very committed to and I’ve heard all the feedback about our store. I’m going to take a bigger leadership role with what’s going on with the Windows Store, making it really tailored towards the gamers that we know want to see the best from what we have to offer. It’s going to be a fun journey.”- Phil Spencer.
Windows has a game mode and integration with Xbox Live which some users like, some dislike and most are indifferent too. How Microsoft can integrate Xbox titles on PC while making the Xbox a viable option is yet to be seen. However, with their recent acquisition of inXile and Obisidan, developers who both have a lot of PC Fans, this could be their chance to do so without alienating either group.
