    Both games were confirmed to be heading to PC during the E3 - PC Gaming Show (streamed in the PC Gamer's Twitch).

    Phil Spencer confirmed that Killer Instinct will be ported to the PC. But Windows 10 is the only focus right now. Also, it seems it will allow cross-platform play, with people on the PC playing against the XBone.

    No Man's Sky, the "3D-Starbond adventure" is also releasing on PC at the same time as the PS4 version.

    Okay, this is getting odd. Why out of the blue in these past few months have the way of console exclusives started to die like this? I mean, whatever, but this is seriously making me wonder what the point of home consoles is going to be by next gen. By making these agreements and failing to secure full exclusivity, Sony is effectively boning themselves and wrecking one of the few divisions they have left that is even remotely profitable. For Microsoft, well, they make money regardless, I'm sure, so at least it makes more sense when Xbox exclusives go the way of PC.

    Interesting. Didn't knew this. :)


    Since MS owns killer instinct, I can't really complain that they're using it to push their upcoming OS...but it's strange that they're more or less killing their reason to get an xbone in the first place.

    They're gonna make XO games playable on Windows 10, right? All the more reason. Microsoft's supporting their platforms so the customers can still enjoy the same games as XO owners.

    It'd be great if they could bring Xbox and Xbox 360 exclusives too to PC, such as DoA 4, Conker Live & Reloaded and Blue Dragon, for example.

    Because they've FINALLY started taking PC gaming seriously? :P

    Also, look at Steam - 90% of the users on there can buy their own freaking games and not wait for their parents to shell for one.
    PC Gaming = massive amounts of cash. All hail Lord Gaben.

    Errr, as far as I know that's like one of the shittiest JRPGs ever? A friend of mine tried selling his copy (after something like a week after he got it) for $3 and nobody wanted it!
