Some of the new scenarios for gaming on Windows 10 and Xbox One include:

·         By bringing all of Xbox Live to Windows 10 devices, and providing developers access to the Xbox Live API, multiplayer gaming will be enabled on Windows 10 against players on an Xbox One.

·         Windows 10 brings the ability to stream games directly from Xbox One consoles to Windows 10 tablets or PCs within the home. 

·         Capturing and editing game clips for games with built-in Game DVR on Windows 10.
