Xbox Division head Phil Spencer has been quite active in responding the questions from the fans, and he posted another round of answers on Twitter.

First of all, to a fan that asked if Xbox One could have a service like PlayStation Now to access older Xbox 360 games, he mentioned that there’s no announcement right now, but he likes the idea of being able to access all his games:

He also mentioned that it’ll depend on the developers whether they’ll support keyboard and mouse against controller in cross-platform games on PC and Xbox One.

To another fan that accused him of “killing xbox” by bringing its games to PC, he gave a quite simple answer:

Spencer also mentioned that he understands that PC gamers want even more from Microsoft, and promised that there’s indeed more to come, encouraging fans to keep pushing:

Finally, he explained that the Xbox app is now available on the new Windows 10 preview for insiders, even if the streaming from Xbox One is not yet in, but will be later this year. Presumably, there will have to be an update on the Xbox One side as well, before that can happen.

Hailing from sunny (not as much as people think) Italy and long standing gamer since the age of Mattel Intellivision and Sinclair ZX Spectrum. Definitely a multi-platform gamer, he still holds the old dear PC nearest to his heart, while not disregarding any console on the market. RPGs (of any nationality) and MMORPGs are his daily bread, but he enjoys almost every other genre, prominently racing simulators, action and sandbox games. He is also one of the few surviving fans of the flight simulator genre on Earth.
