If I were to get Halo Spartan Assault on Windows 8.1 would I be able to play it on the same account on X1 when it comes out for it?

Halo: Spartan Assault is set for a December 24th release on the Xbox One. It will cost $14.99. HOWEVER, if you purchased (or have purchased) the Windows Phone 8 or Windows 8 version of Spartan Assault before December 15th, you will be able to pick up the console version for only $4.99. As soon as a solid date for the Xbox 360 release is announced, we'll be sure to let you know!

Kinda sucks that you have to pay $5, but I heard they essentially doubled the content and added co-op.
Hell, it's about time.

I think crossbuy loses a lot of its use when there isn't a handheld system in the mix. I have 360 and X1 in my house; I really don't need the same game for both. It's great for playing a game out of the house on a handheld though. And aside from Spartan Assault, I don't see a lot of mobile games making their way onto Xbox One.

They are separate games. The Xbone version has new content + online multiplayer, and is $15. The phone/W8 version is $7.

If you were to buy the phone/W8 version, and then buy the Xbone version, you would save $3 if you just bought the Xbone version, which is still a good deal.
This feels warm. What is this feeling? Is it of warmth?
