I know we have mentioned Xbox games streaming to PC. A few of us were thinking PC to Xbox... Well looks like it is in the works!!!

If this does come to pass, this could interesting for steam machines. Personally I like the steam machines. Way more power under the hood then either console, but still would rather make my own.

I upgraded four PCs this morning to Windows 10 Pro/Home. Two Desktops and two laptops. They all took 30 minutes or less. Only one was upgraded with the auto upgrade from Windows update. The other three used the 64 bit download tool from this page.

Great news. And doesn't surprise me one bit. IMO Microsoft is starting to click on all cylinders now. It seems like now they are just doing things naturally. Like navigating their boat into the future along a River of their own creation (Windows). Very smart...as evidenced from the article you linked.


"[Gamers] want to play games on the device that they want to play on. They want to play with their friends and they progress whenever they sit down," explains Spencer. "Because of that, the roadmap and our focus on what's going on, Windows is incredibly strong."


That is how system integration is supposed to work. And it never made any sense to me that Windows and Xbox didn't have the very best sys integration on record. This entire Windows 10 integration with XB1 and backward compatibility, now makes XB1 my must have console for this year and beyond. XB1 will be my Living Room Win 10 game extender. While I can continuously upgrade my overall experiences with my Windows 10 PC. On the M/KB side...I'd really like to see MS and Spencer do a little out of the box thinking about hybridized Win 10/XB controller integration. For example: Take the gaming Keypad (Logitech G13 Advanced) device design all the way to bright instead of just shoe horning in KB/M functionality. Develop a combination XB1-Keypad Controller that combines the best elements of both platforms.

Ya, it was only a matter of time. I don't think I'd buy an xbox for this purpose though, there's lots of ways to stream games from your PC that are less expensive.

And steam machines are DOA anyway. They took way too long to bring them out. If they brought them out last year as planned they might have built some momentum, but at this point it's as likely to succeed as linux on netbooks.

I never bought my Xbox One with this intention in mind. Hell it's a good bonus with it when it comes out. I'll be checking it out that is for sure. Going to try and upgrade my GPU to a 980TI by Christmas time. Then next year try and weasel a new 1440 Monitor out of my wife

If you have a PC with Steam on it, you can install Steam on a second machine, log in to a second machine and stream across the network. Both Steam clients have to be logged in using the same account.

Installed Win 10 onto a new SSD this morning on my PC with all other Drives disconnected. It took 15 minutes total via USB stick. Connected my X1 right away and tried out Destiny. Played a mission on my level 8 Titan and didn't notice any slow down at all. Should be interesting to see how this works more

Using one HTPC to play my Xbox One games and PC games would be great! This might be the consolidation that I am looking for.

I installed Win10 and so far, okay, though it did frighten me for a moment there before I realized that I could set the taskbar up like it was before. Shockingly, 8gadgetpack actually works after re-installing, which it initiated. I'd have missed my CPU monitor gadget.

Haven't tried any Xbox-y stuff with it; I'm a single guy with a single desktop PC connected to the same 60" 4K panel as my consoles so I don't have an actual need for it.
