Microsoft plans to use Windows 10 to show why the PC is "incredibly important" to the gaming market, and will begin to spill the beans next month. The company wants to continue building its Xbox platform, but also hopes to further develop the PC gaming platform.
"I'll be focusing more on what we are doing on Windows 10 in January," said Phil Spencer, head of the Microsoft Xbox division, responding to a fan on Twitter. It's time for us to talk about gaming on Windows." It's likely Spencer will share details during the company's consumer event in January, scheduled for January 21, 2015.
After Windows 8/8.1 largely flopped among consumers and business users, Microsoft wants Windows 10 to be the "one platform" that can be used on billions of PCs, mobile products, and connected devices in coming years.
