Microsoft’s Xbox chief hints at PC gaming announcements for E3

Microsoft Games and Xbox Manager Phil Spencer has already admitted that the company has a lot of work to do on Windows for PC gamers. Spencer is committed to working both in the store and in the Xbox for Windows 10 application, whether it's a bad experience in the Windows Store (Microsoft Store) or in games and discussions management live at Xbox parties. Start listening to the patches provided by Microsoft.



In an interview with PC Gamer, Spencer reveals that Microsoft is giving priority to repairing its store for PC drives. "The first priority is to bring a new Game Store experience that takes into account all the lessons learned from past PC challenges," said Spencer. Part of the problem lies in the fact that Microsoft games must be distributed exclusively through the Windows Store, instead of being available on Steam and elsewhere. Spencer does not commit to changing that, but he says, "I hope we'll share more details about our projects here soon."

These and other details seem to come to E3 in June. "At E3 this year, and throughout 2019, you'll begin to see where we're investing to offer in-store, service, Windows and the best games," says Spencer. "It's only the beginning."

Spencer's comments come just as Microsoft makes some interesting changes in Windows under the hood. The software giant has tested new game installation changes against a Windows 10 update that will be released in April. Thurrott reports that the changes include new services and drivers that could allow Windows 10 to install Xbox games at some point. At a minimum, the changes move the distribution of PC games to the Xbox infrastructure and services.
