Microsoft announced the cross-buy like Play Anywhere program where Xbox One & Window 10 can play the same games starting with titles coming in the future like Halo Wars 2 and Gears of War 4. But the site Techradar wrote up a great article going over the benefits and abilities this offers to gamers. You can read the full article by clicking the source link but a introduction piece for the article will be listed below.
At E3 2016, it came as little shock that Microsoft would be introducing, for the first time ever, a cross-buy program between Xbox One and Windows 10 PCs. After a year of showing strong support for the Universal Windows Platform, Microsoft’s software consolidation push, it was high time for the company to start thinking about gaming on PCs.
With Xbox Play Anywhere, Microsoft is giving PC gaming another shot for the first time since the ill-fated Games for Windows Live. Instead of simply publishing PC games, this new initiative lets you buy a game once and own it on both the Xbox One and PC plus transferring saves, achievements and DLC content between both.
Though some gamers see it as the death of Xbox One exclusives, it seems like an obvious win for others. Knowing it couldn’t remain complacent in Sony’s backseat, Microsoft had to make like Apple and think different. And it did so while taking into account what was at its disposal all along: Windows.
