At this year’s E3, Microsoft announced that backwards compatibility was coming to their flagship Xbox One game console. Now, Microsoft have confirmed that the very same feature will be coming to Windows 10 PCs, which will be able to stream eligible Xbox 360 games, directly from an Xbox One console.

Speaking to Engadget during a private Xbox One demo, Microsoft confirmed that Windows 10 users will be able to take advantage of the very same streaming service. In fact, if you’re a member of the Preview Program, you can start doing it today.

It sure will only really be used in very niche circumstances, but it’s a welcome option nonetheless.

If only we could stream them directly to a Windows 10 PC.
