Prior to the launch of Windows 10, many gamers were excited about the ability to stream their Xbox One games to PCs - but streaming PC games to the Xbox One also created some attention. However, trying to work out the bugs has been a challenge, as Microsoft needs to ensure the games are encoded and streamed properly.

 

Streaming from the game console to the PC is a simpler process "because we know exactly what you have," Spencer noted. "It's actually a little more challenging doing the encoding on the PC side to the Xbox, but [the] challenge is good."

 

Windows 10, which many Windows 7 and 8/8.1 users already are in the process of upgrading to, holds great potential for gamers. As Microsoft confirmed, there are a few issues that must be addressed, but we'll have to wait and see what happens.
