The next Windows 10 update will be the Fall Creators Update and it’s coming on 17 October. Along with a lot dribble about how they want to make Windows 10 a “platform that inspires your creativity”, there is a section on gaming.
The update for gamers reads:
The fuel that often inspires creativity is play. With the Fall Creators Update, we’ve updated Game Mode, which allows your games to use the full processing power of your device as if it was an Xbox game console, right from a new button on the Game bar. And to take advantage of this power, we have a fantastic lineup of Xbox Play Anywhere games coming including, Cuphead, Forza Motorsport 7, Super Lucky’s Tale and Middle-earth: Shadow of War. And, if you love these Xbox play anywhere games, coming on November 7 you can play them on the most powerful console on the planet, Xbox One X.
That’s right, they want to make my PC perform just like an Xbox console. I hope to god my PC doesn’t perform like an Xbox when this update lands, PC gamers have PCs so the gaming experience is specifically not like a Xbox. Microsoft sometimes really don’t get it when it comes to the PC, we don’t give two hoots about the Xbox One.
