According to reliable sources Microsoft confirmed at the Game Developers Conference in San Francisco today that Windows developers can design UWP (Universal Windows Platform) applications for Xbox One game consoles this summer.
has always been more open to develop software for mobile phones desktop computers and tablets but Xbox has always been treated differently. Developing traditional Xbox games means buying expensive Xbox development units (not available on the open market) and Microsoft has also imposed strict controls on the final games and is deeply involved in software package distribution and other processes.
In order to attract independent developers Microsoft will simplify the game development process through some projects but there are still some restrictions to design universal applications and only special partners can obtain this license. However this progress shows that UWP applications will soon support Xbox One.?The launch of Xbox One and PS4 spawned a hacking frenzy?
