Xbox boss says Microsoft fully behind Windows gaming movement

Microsoft and the Xbox team expect Windows 10 to become a solid overall operating system, but have special plans in regards to gaming. The company is removing middleware added to games for Windows Live, and expects to provide a better streamlined experience for gamers. However, there are plenty of other features that should excite gamers moving forward:

The idea that Xbox will be integrated into Windows 10 is another clear indicator that Microsoft wants to push Windows 10 forward - and hopefully generate extra interest in the Xbox One. Windows 10 is the "best version of Windows ever for both gamers and developers alike," and that will become clearer during the company's E3 event later this month.

 

"We weren't fully committed as a company, and I've said that before," said Phil Spencer, head Xbox executive, while speaking to PC Gamer. "We made commitments to developers and consumers that I don't feel we lived up to... the key difference now is that the Xbox team is driving the Windows and console gaming efforts as one connected ecosystem."

Fallout 4 could be available sometime in 2015

It has been a whirlwind couple of days for gamers, as Bethesda Softworks teased Fallout 4, and then announced it the next day. The actual launch date of the game hasn't been announced, but it seems likely Fallout 4 will be available before the end of 2015.

The official Bethesda online store originally had the title listed as "TBA 2015," which has now been changed to just "TBA." However, GameStop and Amazon both have the title listed for 12/31/2015, an unlikely date that is more of a placeholder for a late 2015 launch.

 

Gamers do know Fallout 4 will be available for the PC, Microsoft Xbox One, and Sony PlayStation 4. We'll just have to wait and see what Bethesda has up its sleeve for E3 later this month - where we'll hopefully learn more about Fallout 4.
