Today Microsoft announced the ability for developers to easily convert existing Win 32 games and applications into Windows 10 apps named “Modern Desktop Applications” via a Desktop App Converter.

To demonstrate the power of the feature, Xbox Division Head Phil Spencer briefly showcased The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt after the conversion process, running “at full frame rate” on Windows 10, and taking advantage of the native features that Windows 10 apps can use.

Converted apps can also be deployed seamlessly to the Windows store if developers so choose.

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.
