My System Specs


No. They are simply integrated store fronts now. Basically all Microsoft Gaming falls under the "XBOX" name now. Same goes for Video/Music apps as well.

They wouldn't be compatible with a PC and a console. Too many conflicts.

I just wanted to add that this may very well change win the next xbox, though if it brings Gold to the PC I will be VERY upset.

Unfortunately you cannot, was hoping you could if you already owned the xbox version of the game
