Microsoft investigating PC to Xbox One streaming

Publish date:

It looks like the game streaming properties of Windows 10 will swing both ways.

It has already been revealed that the new operating system will allow the streaming of Xbox One games to PC, but now Microsoft has said that it is also working on allowing the streaming of PC games to Xbox One.

"We're actively investigating that right now," Microsoft studio manager Mike Ybarra told Eurogamer. "We don't have any further details to share, but it's something we're looking at."

Ybarra also discussed its Xbox One to PC streaming tech, adding: "Right now in the labs it's 720p/30fps. We're looking at 1080p/30fps, 1080p/60fps and that is where a lot of what's your home network - is it wired? - will come in to effect.

"So really it will largely depend on the scenario in which someone's trying to play that. But we're investigating to make sure that we can give the optimal experience based on what the scenario is for the consumer.”

Compatibility will not be universal, however – Kinect games will not work for obvious reasons.
