Xbox Series X may introduce a pretty impressive feature that would allow players to switch the console's operating system to Windows 10 and use Steam and Epic Games Store on Xbox.

Xbox One is nearing its end and it's set to be replaced by the powerful new console - Xbox Series X. We already know a lot of details about the console and Microsoft even decided to show off the brand new looks a couple of weeks ago.

Now, the full, official details are yet to be revealed and Microsoft are keeping their cards close to their chests on this one. You can probably expect to hear more as we get closer to the release date, which is currently set for Holiday season 2020.

Until then, there's a lot of rumours floating around, and the latest one suggests that Xbox Series X could introduce a pretty impressive feature that would allow players to switch the console's operating system to Windows 10 and access their games library in Steam and Epic Games Store.

This basically transforms your console into PC, meaning that you would get to play PC games on Xbox Series X. Now this is yet to be officially confirmed so just like any other rumour, leak or unconfirmed info, take it with a grain of salt.

That been said, it's not entirely impossible that this feature is indeed planned. Microsoft have been working hard to bridge the gap between Xbox and PC in the last couple of years with cross-play and backwards compatibility. It's safe to expect that they will only push harder with similar features in their next-gen console. Xbox Series X even looks like a PC which tells you a lot about Microsoft's plans.
