Xbox gaming on Windows 8, here is Microsoft’s Avi Ben-Menahem briefly showcasing what would be possible with Xbox Live and Windows 8. Will this bring Xbox Live gaming on Windows 8 tablets? Integrating access to Xbox Live could help Microsoft gain some ground in the tablet market.
Clearly it’s in a very early state, but even at this stage we’re seeing signs of cross platform multiplayer game support. It would seem that Microsoft are thinking this one through, rather than just botching a gaming element in, features like “cloud saves” and dedicated Music & Video panes will be available.
The Xbox Live development program will purportedly be free, and if Ben-Menahem has his way, this will bring “everything you know and love on Xbox 360 and Xbox Live to Windows.” Brave. Check out the videos below.
