Streaming PC Games onto Windows 10 PCs is Next

Xbox One games can be streamed to Windows 10 PCs. Microsoft is working on the other way around too.

The just released Windows 10 enables Xbox One game streaming to PCs.

Now Microsoft talks about the reverse too.

Phil Spencer, Head of Xbox said in interview with The Verge: "We understand if you're going to go PC to Xbox, we need to get keyboard and mouse working completely so you could play those games. "

There is no schedule yet on when streaming PC  games to Xbox One consoles will work.

"Streaming from Xbox One to Windows 10 PCs is a lot more predictable  because we know exactly what you have," says Spencer.  "It's actually a little more challenging doing the encoding on the PC side to the Xbox, but challenge is good," he added.

The Xbox One is the only "odd" hardware in the new Windows 10 universe.

Microsoft sees all devices to run Windows 10, but the Xbox One is not there yet.

It will take a Xbox Two that is going to run Windows 10 under the hood.

Microsoft started to roll out Windows 10 at midnight ET. The Windows 10 update is first available for the 5 million Windows Insiders. They earned the early serving with beta-testing Windows 10.

The first Windows 10 reviews are positive, but there are bugs. Some reviewers suggest to wait until the day one patch fixing a slew of bugs.

There is a way to force Windows 10 upgrade now for those who do not want to wait.
