Windows 10 Store and Xbox Store finally converge, Xbox titles appear in the Store

Microsoft started to migrate Xbox One games to the Windows 10 Store back in May, as part of its plan to fuse the two platforms. In this manner, Windows 10 game will also be available on Xbox One, allowing developers to create games for both platforms.

While many of us expected Microsoft to complete the store merge with the Anniversary Update, it seems the tech giant pressed fast forward button and has already migrated all Xbox One titles to the Windows 10 Store.  For the time being, none of these games are available for purchase or download, as the two stores will officially merge on July 29.

The decision to merge the Xbox One and the Windows Store is one of the best decisions Microsoft has taken so far, removing the barriers between gamers stuck in closed communities with little between platforms. And this isn’t the only advantage the merge brings: you’ll be able to find the games you love faster and at the best prices, use filters, and search results by genre to find the perfect games for you. If you’re undecided, you can read the reviews written by fellow gamers, including those voted “most helpful” by the Xbox Live community, to help you make up your mind.

Discounts will be highlighted so that you don’t miss any deal that could potentially interest you. You’ll also find all the bundles, season passes, virtual currency and other game add-ons in a single place, too. In other words, things will be smoother. And that’s always a great step forward.
