What kind of support will the X1 have for its app store?

This is something I'm really wondering about. The idea of every X1 being a dev kit seems a step in the right direction. So little seems to be known on how that will work though. I mean, can I create an app on my PC and load it onto my X1 like I can with an Android device? Having 3rd party support for your device can be a make or break aspect. Anyone who owns a smart phone or tablet knows the importance of available apps.

Microsoft seems intent on the X1 being more than a gaming console. They seem to want it to also be a multi functional platform for your TV. Will there be a facebook app such as:

In the last gen both the 360 and PS3 were playing catch up with the 'App Gen' of software. Basically both were trying to patch in functionality for this. The X1 though certainly seems designed from the start to support this idea. I can't really say for the PS4 yet as I have not been able to find much info on it so far.

Anyways, what sort of app would you like to see on your X1, do you think this is a viable market at all, and if it is a potential market how do you think MS will pursue it?

I would imagine the Bone will have the same as the windows 8 apps.

Basically social and entertainment apps
HBOgo
WatchESPN
NFL
MLB.tv (maybe Sony has a exclusive with this)
FB
Twitter
last.fm
Pandora
Netflix
Hulu+
Twitch
Youtube

That type of s---. (NOTE: Not saying any of those will be made or will be at launch just examples of what types of apps we might see on either console.)

Yikes... Windows 8 really sucks so this would be terribly unfortunate for the xbone.

Eh widows 8 seems fine to me, and is actually the best OS for PC gaming.
