Windows 8 Apps Will Run on Xbox One According to Dell

There is quite an interesting development from Dell, it appears Dell has lifted off the curtains from one of the unannounced features coming with Xbox One this November. According to Dell, the Xbox One will be able to run Windows 8 apps which will be able to sync among all Windows 8 devices, isn’t that an interesting news? Xbox One product page has claimed the news basically also adding up that this will give users a unique experience. If the information turns out to be accurate, it will mean that PC will make itself a place in the living room courtesy Xbox One. It is important to mention here that Microsoft has still not given any official verdict on it. So we are assuming that either Dell has mistakenly released the info or have miss-worded it completely.


The ad states, “Consider the game officially changed. With all your favorite Windows 8 apps able to be run on and synced to your Xbox One, now your phone, desktop, tablet and TV can all give you a unified web and entertainment experience.”

We are trying to pull out all the facts to determine whether this can be really true! Interestingly during the BUILD 2013 keynote, there were strong hints that Microsoft will be allowing Windows 8 app developers to liberate their innovations on Xbox One. Secondly, the demo presentation on stage demonstrated the Khan Academy app running on which the presenters claimed was an Xbox One console back stage. However, no information has been put forward whether how these apps will be published.

Microsoft’s first next generation gaming console will go on sale this November.
