    The backwards compatibility I thought was the biggest climax of the conference. Disappointed that Halo MCC wasn't announced for Windows 10 nor Sunset OverDrive, but we can all dream.

    I'm excited to hear about cross-buy with Windows 10 and wonder how far Microsoft could take that idea. If well-executed and featured in top games, this could be a game-changer for PC owners who want a living room gaming experience in addition to their PC rig.

    A little far from my home, unfortunately. ;)

    All in all, this conference looked very similar to my E3 MS conference notes. ;P

    The Cross-play feautre is interesting indeed! I like how capcom is allowing this feature in their upcoming Street Fighter V game. Developers should take suit and follow. PC gamers do benefit for having top quality gaming that is if the port is good *cough* Arkham Knight *cough but the multiplayer environment wasn't always as big as console users. Hopefully the future implementation of cross-play will change this for the better.

    ARK is garbage, but Halo 5, Scalebound and Dark Souls 3 look yummy.

    Scalebound looks cool. Kinda like Monster Hunter meets Devil May Cry.

    Scalebound looks exciting and promising. :lol:



    I just wish the gameplay was faster as it seems a tad slow.
