Xbox Series X may support Steam and Epic Games Store, according to latest rumours

Microsoft's Xbox Series X next-gen console may support Steam and the Epic Games Store, according to rumours circulating among supposed insiders in the Xbox community.

As with any rumour, this information is to be taken with a large pinch of salt, but the rumours suggest that the Xbox Series X may feature a "Windows mode" that enables players to switch the console's operating system to Windows 10, which would give you access to the Steam and Epic Games Store platforms. If true, you could essentially transform the console into a PC, and gain access to a whole library of games you might not otherwise be able to play on Xbox.

It's especially interesting when you take into account games like Quantic Dream's Detroit: Become Human or Heavy Rain that were originally PS4 exclusives before coming to PC late last year. There are also rumours circulating that Horizon Zero Dawn could be getting a PC port, which would mean Xbox players could potentially play it on the Xbox Series X if this Windows mode turns out to be true.

The idea isn't such an unrealistic one. Microsoft has been pushing to create a cohesive, unified family of platforms since the launch of the Xbox one, with features such as cross-play on PC and console, and of course backwards compatibility. We already know the Xbox Series X backwards compatibility will support every generation of console including the original Xbox, giving you access to a huge library of classic Xbox games.

Just from the outward appearance, the console even looks like a PC tower, and it would make sense if the Xbox Series X supports Microsoft's operating system. While we'll have no way of knowing just how accurate these rumours are for now, it's an exciting prospect.

That would be dope but I wonder how it would handle Steam games that are PC only and has recommended hardware requirements that are above the Xbox Series X? Imagine buying a $500-700 console and a year later there's some Steam games you can't even buy cause it won't run on the damn thing.


To me the future of consoles is making them modular like a computer.. meaning you can upgrade it and switch out for bigger hard drives, memory and graphics. This will make the lifespan of those consoles longer and people will be spending more money to keep their console's hardware modern if they want to so they can continue to play the latest games.

What I'm recommending might not ever be possible or realistic though I don't know enough about PC hardware to really think deeper about it.

And I stand by that. The Wii U had like 10 good games and no support. Same with the Wii. The Vita was mostly indie and old PS2 games and the PSP Go and Vita TV sucked. The Dreamcast had some great games but it was k*lled off early. How do I know? Because outside of the Vita, Vita TV, and Go I have all of those systems. I actually have 2 Dreamcasts come to think of it. You're not thinking about all of the games as a whole.

But there's no convincing the rabid fanboy so why am I even trying. I just know this comment is gonna anger you and you're gonna go on a tantrum proving you have no clue what you're talking about.

You didnít stand by that at all homie. You completely no showed after I listed games. Why didnít you provide a list instead of just say vague sh*t like the Wii U only had ten games? Even though that still means it had at least 7 more good games than Xbox One

Dreamcast got k*lled off early and the library still sh*ts on Xbox One. Maybe you need to own 200 dreamcasts to come to that realization but thatís facts.

Idk why you keep bringing up PSP Go and Vita TV. You just listing sh*t for the sake of it now. Whatís next, Super Game Boy has a trash library too?

if they do this lots of ppl gonna be mad.....
no need for a ps5, just wait for PC port but can play on xbox, damn!

the potential is great for this, that means u dont even have to cop a PC no more... especially if this thing is rivelling a rtx 1080ti....

fu*k, if this is true... NO MATTER HOW MUCH IT SELLS...
-with gamepass(ultimate)
-xplay
-crossplay/cross save/and instant on state saves
-faster loading w/ new ssd/no load times load screens (potentially)
-new controller
-back compat (full library)
-xstream
-more raw compute power @12.4 Tflops (for AI, and physics)
-built in/hardware ray tracing


and they could have no exclusives or poor exclusives (but we know thats not true.. at worst they'll be decent to great)
so.. if this is true, XSX looking so far, if this is TRUE (only if true)...

this is the best next gen console...!

we have to wait and see what sony says about those unrevealed features

you must be dislex-sick...
xbox doubling their studios, tells u in your brain... that they not gonna put out games.. and even though they have said in pressers, there will be exclusives...

ur gonna run with the narrative, because your read that article about MS still supporting the x1 for a couple years after the XSX launches.... like SONY just gonna stop making games for the PS4 when the PS5 drops...

sir u are fuct!
