Cross-Buy to be featured on Windows 10

At Microsoft’s Windows 10 event we were told that PC games purchased on the Xbox Marketplace on Windows 10 would have cross-play with their Xbox One counterparts starting with Fable Legends.

At GDC Microsoft announced that not only will those games be featuring cross-play but they will also feature cross-buying. That means if you purchase a game on your PC you will also own it Digitally on the Xbox One.

This is good news for people like myself who own both a PC and an Xbox One. I buy all of my games on PC except for exclusives which means I often miss out in playing with some of my friends.

Although this will only be if benefit if the game you are purchasing doesn’t already have cross-play, because why play it on the Xbox when you can play it on PC?
