    Can a xbox one s play PC version games?

    The short answer is no. You can not play a PC version of a game on the Xbox One S. You need the Xbox One version of the game to play on the Xbox One. There are lots of games that are on both PC and Xbox One, and some are

    play anywhere
    .

    If you logged into your xbox account when you made the purchase for Windows 10 version of the game ot should be able to download on xbox, but only if the game is part of the PlayAnywhere library and is a digital copy.

    Can a xbox one s play PC version games?

    What game are you talking about?

    If it is on this list

    https://www.xbox.com/en-US/games/xbox-play-anywhere?xr=shellnav

    Then it should show up in your ready to install section of your console as long as you bought the digital copy of the game and bought it from MS

    Can a xbox one s play PC version games?

    If its an Xbox Play anywhere game it just means you will own the PC version and Xbox version and your progress should carry over it does not mean you are playing the 1 for 1 PC version as obviously things are different menus will be as well on some games
    and you are not able on Xbox to change graphics settings in detail aside from some pretty direct PC ports that end up sharing a lot of options such as Warframe which has quite a bit more graphic options then most games on Xbox but you are still playing the
    Xbox version of it. The reason most games run smoothly (Usually) on Xbox is because they were tweaked to run on the console with very specific settings you can not change. Now just make sure you are signed into the same account that purchased the game on PC
    and the game if its Xbox Play Anywhere should be in your ready to install list in your My games and apps on Xbox.
