Does anyone remember when couple of months ago Phil Spencer promised increased focus on PC Gaming? http://www.gamespot.com/articles/microsoft-we-need-to-do-more-for-pc-gaming/1100-6420024/
So do you think this is a good or bad thing from perspective of an XB1 owner if more XB1 exclusives make their way to PC ? Ryse and Dead Rising 3 are already in and Halo MCC coming to PC is a strong possibility if Phil's words are to be believed.This is all very good for a PC owner who does not own Xbox but what do XB1 owners have feel about this ? Do you feel that this makes owning XB1 pointless and should just sell off the XB1 and go PC/PS4 ?

You're assuming that every single XB1 title will go to the PC.

The same silly assumption was made by anti-MS fanboys with the 360 and it never happened.

They wont go ps4 lol, I don't know why everyone thinks they will. If the xbox dies and they stop making them they will just go to making windows exclusive games.

As for this being a bad thing, no. People that play consoles usually just like to play on consoles. Countless xbox 360 exclusives went to PC and that didn't stop it from selling 84 million consoles.

[conspiracy mode activated] MS did terribly with their focus on the X1's games (their core audience). Lack of games at the reveal, it was all TVTVTV, Kinect bundle and then backtracking on their "it's integral to the X1 vision", higher price point with weaker hardware etc then having "exclusives" saying things like this:

http://www.dualshockers.com/2013/10/30/ryse-son-of-rome-will-not-be-ported-to-pc-down-the-line-will-not-have-a-demo-at-launch/

And then they say they're going to focus more/do more for PC gaming, are releasing dx12 (low level API which will benefit PCs more) and are releasing previous exclusives that "won't come to PC". That's a little bit strange. [conspiracy mode deactivated]

X1 for $399 is pointless. Just play the games on PC.

Poster 2 said the two aren't competing. So the games going to the PC won't do anything bad to Xbox One sales.

By that logic even Nintendo and PC aren't competing but imagine if Nintendo games like Mario,Zelda,etc started being ported to PC wouldn't that affect Nintendo hardware sales ?

Developers/publishers in general need to do more for pc gaming. Not every game needs to be released on pc but the ones that do need to be more than rushed ports just to cash in.

Not really. Nintendo's main target are younger kids and parents will buy them a Nintendo before they'd buy them a pc. Even if the parents already own a gaming pc it's unlikely they would be allowed to play on it. You might lose some older gamers but the core audience would be largely unchanged. Not only that but they would pick up sales from people who won't buy a console but want to play those games.

Not the same thing. Nintendo are competing with PC. Microsoft aren't. That's why Halo: The Master Chief Collection is coming to PC according to poster 2. This November. With free online.

If you could assure me that every title would be on the PC, then it would be pointless to me to own an X1.

I'm basically holding my X1 now just to play one game, SO, though I do occasionally still play Ryse (and, yes, I actually like Ryse--if I sell my X1, I will buy the PC version of Ryse).
