Microsoft is on full swings with its recent announcements, earlier at E3 this week, Microsoft literally fired a cannon by announcing that backwards compatibility with Xbox 360 games is coming to the Xbox One, and that it is currently available for preview members. Now, Microsoft has also confirmed that Xbox 360 games will be able to take advantage of Xbox One to Windows 10 game streaming as well. Looks like backward compatibility wasn’t enough, to imagine that Microsoft will drop another bomb like that, well it somehow creates a room for its competitors.
Engadget has recently reported that,
“In a private demo of the Xbox One’s revamped interface, the company confirmed to Engadget that users will have access to its streaming functionality when the new features roll out this holiday season. (If you’re a member of the Preview Program, though, you should be able to play 360 games on a Win 10 machine already.)”
Furthermore, it is also confirmed that this applies to the upcoming VR beast ‘Oculus Rift’ as well, which, as was recently revealed, will fully support game streaming in Windows 10. Overall, this is some very interesting news. While streaming Xbox One games to Windows 10 was already a pretty big feature, it’s great to see that the newly-announced backwards compatibility will extend this feature to older games as well.
