Windows 10's foray into gaming has taken another step with the confirmation that Microsoft will offer cross-buy with Xbox One.

The system will work in much the same way as it does on PSN, where some games allow buyers to purchase the game on one system (either PS4, PS3 or Vita) and then also download for free on any other compatible systems they own.

Zen Studios' Pinball FX2 is the first title confirmed for cross-buy. Those who already own the game on Xbox One or Xbox 360 will be able to access all purchased content on Windows 10.

A number of other titles, such as Fable Legends, will offer cross-play between the two platforms, meaning multiplayer sessions will include both console and PC gamers simultaneously.

Xbox boss Phil Spencer in January promised that Windows 10 will be the most game-centric OS Microsoft has ever made.
