Microsoft has dropped the release date for new OS Windows 10.


It’ll be available on July 29. If you don’t believe us, you can hear it straight from Cortana below.

Windows 10 will run on a lot of hardware but most significantly for us is the Xbox One.

Here’s the blurb on Windows 10 on Xbox, straight from the official site: “Xbox Live and the integrated Xbox App bring new game experiences to Windows 10. Xbox on Windows 10 brings the expansive Xbox Live gaming network to both Windows 10 PCs and tablets.

“Communicate with your friends on Windows 10 PCs and Xbox One – while playing any PC game. You can capture, edit and share your greatest gaming moments with Game DVR, and play new games with friends across devices. You can play games on your PC, streamed directly from your Xbox One console to your Windows 10 tablets or PCs, within your home. Games developed for DirectX 12 in Windows 10 will see improvements in speed, efficiency and graphics capability.”
