Re: So, it's a PC, right ?

Xbox OS is essentially a VM that runs on top of Windows Core as the host OS. Look up Xbox One on Wikipedia, or search the web for Xbox One architecture. It's more likely that they will release a software only version of Xbox OS to run on Windows, but it's more likely that more games will drift towards versions that function on both Windows and Xbox and dump their save files out in Azure somewhere.
