The Verge heard rumors that Microsoft may make some big changes to enhance the popularity of its Xbox One platform, as it's lagging in sales behind Sony's PS4. As you may know, the Xbox One originally used a customized version of Windows 8 and was upgraded to Windows 10 in November.
Now there are rumors that the software giant could bring the full Xbox One user interface and system to the desktop versions of Windows 10, which would turn every PC into an Xbox One:
Part of this could involve bringing the full Xbox One UI and system directly into desktop versions of Windows 10. The latest Xbox One dashboards are built on top of Windows 10, so most of the work involved would be customizing the interface towards keyboard and mouse. Bringing the Xbox One UI over to Windows 10 machines would effectively turn every PC into an Xbox One, especially if they're also capable of running the latest console games.
If Xbox One games are truly playable on PCs, then this approach also boosts Microsoft's Universal App platform and the ability to offer a single store purchase that will work across PCs and consoles.
Microsoft is expected to reveal more about its Windows 10 and Xbox One integration efforts next week at E3.
