Oculus Minecraft does sound like a lot of fun for my kids.

Not after this year. MS will do a token amount of PC support, then pull the plug when the Microsoft store fails -- and do what everyone else does who launches their own platform instead of using Steam -- they will blame piracy and the PC market and go back to making games for the Xbone where they mostly don't have to deal with piracy or drivers or modders.

You are getting a version of Forza, and old Gears of War game and whatever that Quantum thing is (it's some kinda FMV game, right?) and beyond that I wouldn't hold my breath.

More and more publishers are moving away from PC gaming because of the insane amount of hassle having to deal with drivers & hardware is. Which is the reason they moved away from it in the first place (and then started to move back when Steam got popular).

From what I know of internal MS structure, you can bet the Xbone division doesn't place nice with the PC gaming division and that alone will be the rift that kills off their PC gaming plans.

It might be worth mentioning that the Forza game isn't even a full game, it's a game demo. And I notice that they haven't said anything about bringing Halo 5 or Gears of War 4 to the PC.

I think it would be kinda neat to see MS support PC gaming, all these games are developed on PC's in the first place after all, but they are going to be so scared of cutting into their Xbone sales (which are already stalling out) that they won't do it for any of the games people actually want to play.

As of today, MS is forcing them to play nice with one another.

The company that won't even bring their main franchies (Halo, Gears, Forza) to the PC is going to create a unified Xbox division? Bwahahahahaha.

Good luck, MS. You can call a division anything you want, but the culture(s) persist, and if they're oil and water like your PC and console divisions, you're going to continue to have problems unless you empty house and star anew.

1. Gear is on PC now. http://www.polygon.com/2016/3/1/1114...pc-launch-date

2. How do you know Halo and Forza won't be coming to PC? Basing that simply because they haven't announced it?

The Gears game that is on PC is a second port of Gears of War 1, which was ported to the PC back in 2007. I know, I still play it on my PC.

The Forza game that was just announced seems like it is a real game... a real pay-to-win game. It's still not a real copy of Forza 6 for the PC.

And Halo... well, the Master Chief Collection has been out for a year and Halo 5 has been out for months and they haven't announced a port of either one for the PC. I suspect they don't want their biggest Xbone franchise coming to the PC.

They are only bringing over to the PC titles that have failed or are so old that no one really cares. ie, Fable, Crackdown and Quantum Break. Remedy's last title was such a massive flop that you can see why they don't care if the next game comes to the PC, they have nothing left to lose at this point with that company.

Crackdown 2 was a commercial flop and while I don't think the new Crackdown has been officially announced for PC, I'm thinking it will end up on the PC at some point.
