Microsoft will also be detailing its ideas for PC gaming in the future, as confirmed by an Xbox Wire post.
“The Xbox Experience isn’t limited just to the console. The Xbox team is continually workinghard to expand and improve the experience across myriad devices – including home gaming PCs, soon to be powered by Windows 10,” said Xbox Wire’s Editor in Chief Will Tuttle.
“Our goal is to help PC gaming flourish, and we’re excited to be helping shape the future of Windows. Phil Spencer [Xbox Boss] will be sharing on the Windows consumer experience at a Windows event on January 21, including the role that gaming will play.”
