    We all hope that Xbox on Windows Phone isn't dead, but the sad truth is that it is and has been. Less and less games come out as time goes on. Microsoft doesn't care about it so why should we? We need to give up the expectation of having those Xbox titles because that's holding back apps and updates from coming to us sooner.

    I have opened up a few times in which I think the one area universal apps will actually make a huge difference will be gaming. If a developer can make an XBOX game app, and get it across Windows 10 and Windows 10 for phone as well, that can only improve gaming on mobile.

    If you are refering to XBOX Live intergration as being dead- maybe. Much like Rooms and Hubs, this feature needs to be utilized by users to get it off the ground. People like XBOX Live intergration, but it never really hit the criticle mass it needs to for it to be a mobile break away hit.

    We just need more and better gaming options. Live is not all that needed in my book.

    Moved this from "Off Topic Lounge" due to subject matter.

    Glad you diluted yourself into thinking that. Hopefully you can now live a happier life.

    Having Xbox is a neat little feature to have but I do not let it dictate my choice of games.

    If I did, I wouldn't be able to enjoy great games like Dungeon Hunter 4, GTA San Andreas, Star Wars Commander and many many more.

    Perhaps with Windows 10 we may see more Xbox certified games but it's not a necessity.

    I think Microsoft needs to let indie devs make Xbox games for WP, I've seen lots of games that are good enough to be Xbox compatible.

    You obviously haven't truly seen "dead" yet.

    Usually its usually a good sign when each version of a product sells better than the last. In this case apparently it means you're dead. **** perspective

    I don't think so. I still play GTA5 on my xbox 360. it's not drop dead gorgeous, but the gameplay is the same as the Windows or Xbox One version. well, mostly.
