See the original posting on The Verge
Microsoft is planning to open up its Xbox One apps platform in a big way this summer. While the software maker has remained consistently quiet around its timing for cross-platform (universal) apps running on its gaming console, sources familiar with Microsofts plans tell The Verge that the company will start to allow more and more apps on the Xbox One by the end of the year. Microsoft is planning to detail its plans fully at the companys Build developer conference in April, but we understand theyll involve allowing developers to turn retail Xbox One units into developer kits.
