        Its library of games, Xbox Live service, and backwards-compatibility with 360 games?

          Sales wise Halo peaked with Halo 3. I'm curious how Microsoft will turn that around and get players interested again.

      The GPUs seemed to have been switched. The minimum spec has the high end cards and the recommended spec has the previous gen cards.

      Also Scalebound, ReCore, Fable Legends, Gears of War 4.

      It's only a matter of time before Crackdown 3 is too.

      MS is doing a great job justifying this new PC, but also completely talking me out of buying an XBO.

          Everything I have read seems to indicate that the game is nothing but continuous boss fights that are hard as fuck. It looks stunning but I'm not interested in another entry in the hard games club.

            Yea honestly if it ends up being just that, I probably wait on it too. I don't mind hard games but idk, as of late I am enjoying narrative based games, or just something light and fun heh. I do REALLY like the look of it and hope it ends up being more!

      Awesom I'm looking forward to this one since I did enjoy Alan Wake quite a bit despite its faults.

      Its pretty cool to see a crossbuy preorder like that from Microsoft. You usually see that kind of stuff from on Sony devices. The cynical side of me is think this is to drive attention to the Windows App Store again. They also released Rise of the Tomb Raider on the Windows 10 app store.

      I really think more publishers should support cross-buy with PC. Not necessarily cross-play but buy. If you ran in to situation like with Battlefront where the PC matchmaking is horrible you could switch to the console version without feeling like you wasted money.

        More to push Windows 10 in this case, which is the minimum OS required. It's a DirectX 12 game with no backwards compatibility.
