Microsoft has confirmed during the Windows 8 keynotes at the Build Developer Conference that the company’s Xbox Live service will be integrated into the next generation operating system, Windows 8.
“We are very excited about Xbox LIVE coming to Windows 8. Xbox LIVE brings your games, music, movies, and TV shows to your favorite Microsoft and Windows devices. Bringing Xbox LIVE to Windows 8 is part of our vision to bring you all the entertainment you want, shared with the people you care about, made easy,” Microsoft’s Director of Programming for Xbox Live, Larry Hryb states.
We are expecting more information on Xbox Live’s integration with Windows 8 in the near future. Microsoft has already brought this type of integration to Windows Phone, so its only a matter of time before we see in on our PCs.
“At BUILD we are showing that it is easy for developers to create games for Windows 8 that take advantage of the power of Xbox LIVE. We have much more detail to share about the capabilities of Xbox LIVE on Windows and look forward to the opportunity to do so in the near future,” Hryb stated.
