Just when you thought that Microsoft’s Xbox Play Anywhere program was going to force you to play PC games through the questionable functionality of the Microsoft Store, Phil Spencer and his gamer sensibilities come through to save the day. On a Giant Bomb live stream, Spencer confirmed that Microsoft would bring PC games back to Steam.

For PC gamers who have upgraded to Windows 10, this was the press conference that they’ve been waiting for from Microsoft. However, there was another treat in store for PC gamers. Microsoft announced their new Xbox Play Anywhere program that allows gamers to buy a select game once and play it on both Xbox One and Windows 10.
