Windows 8 Apps Will Run On The Xbox One, According To Dell

Several months ago, we had heard of rumors that said that Windows 8 apps would be ported over to the upcoming Xbox One game console. It made a lot of sense too, since the new Xbox is pretty much entirely based on PC architecture, and runs Microsoft's own code. But up until now, we had not heard about any such cross-platform compatibility from Microsoft's side, or even from AMD. However, Dell decided that it had enough and let the cat out of the bag. A pre-order page for the Xbox One on Dell's official website lists a very interesting feature which, in a million years, wouldn't miss a keen eye.

Here's what the text reads:

Consider the game officially changed. With all your favorite Windows 8 apps able to be run on and synced to your Xbox One, now your phone, desktop, tablet and TV can all give you a unified web and entertainment experience.

Now that is as much a confirmation as we would ever need. We're just wondering as to when Microsoft would have announced this feature, or were we supposed to assume this on our own.
