How does that work exactly. Do you need an Xbox One at all? My friend wants to play some old Metal Slug games from the Arcade Archives

And according to this

They're available on windows 10.

Not what I'm asking tho. Also some people have issues with MAME and these are arcade ports.

if you can buy the game there, or if it says "play anywhere" then you can play it on pc.

in this case, that game you linked doesn't appear to be on PC at all

all of the ACA games say this

The Metal Slug games aren't on the Microsoft Store. They're on Steam and GOG.

Only certain ones are and they're not the arcade versions. I actually have Anthology plus all the ACA MS games on PS4, but my friend was having trouble with his Steam version of MS3, so he was looking into the microsoft store ones. I told him I'd look into it as well, but I guess they're not available then. At least not currently.

How much brain power does it require to check the section in the listing on the store that shows what devices the game works on?

I'm not understanding the question. No you don't need an Xbox to play PC games from the Microsoft store but you do have to make sure the game is a PC game. You will be able to tell by the game having a PC icon.
