So this is the same technology as the PlayStation Now right?

Xbox 360 game-streaming is coming to Windows 10

As if backwards compatibility for Xbox One wasn't enough, Microsoft's also going to let you stream those older games to Windows 10 PCs. In a private demo of the Xbox One's revamped interface, the company confirmed to Engadget that users will have access to its streaming functionality when the new features roll out this holiday season. (If you're a member of the Preview Program, though, you should be able to play 360 on a Win 10 machine already.) Microsoft also revealed that Xbox 360 titles relying on the original Kinect, or any other hardware accessories, won't work with Xbox One. An Xbox spokesperson said the team wanted to have backwards compatibility from launch day, but it turned out to be a difficult task because of the different architecture between the two systems. For your sake, at least it's here now.

And to think all these gamer specific features are coming to be because of the PS4's launch victory. God bless competition.
