With Windows 10, Microsoft bought Xbox One and PC under one roof. But unfortunately, Microsoft was unable to forecast that this could backfire because the company will have to let go of Xbox exclusives to Windows 10.
The Xbox Play Anywhere program is soon going to have the games such as ; Gears of War, Forza, ReCore and Sea of Theives. On the contrary, there is no faithful Xbox One exclusivity that may make you think about what actually the Xbox fans have gained from the merger of platforms.
On the other hand, Universal Windows Platform (UWP) did not do a thing for Xbox, although fans were expecting to see AAA PC exclusives coming to Xbox One. Unfortunately, there hasn’t any development been made in the department. The positivity in this is that Microsoft is working on it and is trying to bring AAA PC games to Xbox One.

@XBX4LFE Strange comments. Xbox is having a good gen, our best yet. XB1S strong since launch. Can always improve but proud of where we are

Fingers have been pointed at UWP many times and the questions they’ve been asked are very legit; what did we gain as Xbox One users? Tim Sweeney, American computer game programmer and founder of Epic Games currently bashed the platform. He was pretty straightforward when he said that it’s high time for developers to fight the initiative taken by Microsoft. In an article published by Tim Sweeney of Epic Games to The Guardian, he said;
“In my view, this is the most aggressive move Microsoft has ever made. [Microsoft] is effectively telling developers you can use these Windows features only if you submit to the control of our locked-down UWP ecosystem.They’re curtailing users’ freedom to install full-featured PC software, and subverting the rights of developers and publishers to maintain a direct relationship with their customers.”
What are your thoughts on this? Do you believe that AAA PC games on Xbox One are what we need at this moment in time? What else can Microsoft do in order to bring more content for the users of Xbox One? Tell us in the comments section below!!
