Language region independence, doesn't do anything for me but I'm glad they're finally doing it for those who wanted it!

Do I have to purchase the games digitally to get them for free on Win 10? Hopefully I can purchase physical copies and get the game digitally on Win 10.... Anyone know for sure?

All I heard was the word Digital so not sure about if a physical copy would let you have both I am sure there will be more information soon.

Anyone know for sure?I highly doubt physical copies will get cross buy. People will pop in the game to get a free copy then return it, or people will sell off their extra codes like Quantum Break. I'm willing to bet they'll automatically apply the game to your account without a code.

As a collector who prefers physical games, I would be annoyed (but understanding) if they went down that route.

Same here man, that's why I was hoping physical copies would be included. Oh well, can keep focusing on my 360 collection lol

What could be intresting is if i remeber right Microsoft did do that Poll about "trading in" digital games a few months back if they do something like that or some sort of discount program it could make the play anywhere a real deal

Can't wait for arena.
Other than that the cross play is awesome, not that i have any PC's that could run any of these games, but its good to know its there.

Anyone know for sure?The only way that could work is if they started selling the discs with CD keys to prove you own the game, and I don't see that happening with console games. Most likely will be digital only.

I just watched the part of E3 that this is in, and you have missed one of my most wanted features!

Wait, background music? Like we can play Pandora and a game at the same time? Or does the music have to reside locally on the Xbox? Ugh, now I got to search the web!

One list of achievements, no stacks.
