Microsoft Is Looking Into Streaming PC Games to Xbox One

By Alex OsbornXbox boss Phil Spencer has confirmed that Microsoft is currently looking into making it possible for Xbox One owners to stream PC games to their console.

"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," Spencer told The Verge. "In terms of where we want to go with our platform, those are absolutely in scope of things that we want to do."

With the launch of Windows 10, gamers can now stream their Xbox One games to PC, but thanks to a few challenges, a solution to make the reverse possible hasn't been worked out just yet. However, Microsoft is aware of the demand for such functionality and is looking to make it a reality.

"It's actually a little more challenging doing the encoding on the PC side to the Xbox, but challenge is good," Spencer added. "[Gamers] want to play games on the device that they want to play on. They want to play with their friends and they progress whenever they sit down. Because of that, the roadmap and our focus on what's going on, Windows is incredibly strong."

The Xbox boss didn't provide a target date for when PC-to-Xbox One game streaming might be available, but based on his comments, the company is clearly committed to working out a solution.
