Xbox Live Coming to Windows 8

Posted by at 9:15 pm on September 14, 2011

Microsoft is bringing Xbox Live, its blockbuster online gaming and entertainment service, to Windows 8.

Larry “Major Nelson” Hryb, an Xbox spokesman, confirmed the addition of Xbox Live to the in-development Windows 8 operating system, which will run on PCs and tablets, in a blog post on Wednesday.

“We are confirming that we will be bringing Xbox LIVE to the PC with Xbox LIVE on Windows,” Hyrb wrote. “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.”

This week, at Microsoft’s Build developers conference in Anaheim, Microsoft gave away tablets loaded with an early version of Windows to attendees. The tech giant followed that up with a public release of the pre-beta OS — but in both versions, while some prototype games were included, an Xbox Live app was not.

Hryb said that more details would come down the road, as Windows 8’s development continues.
