Resident Evil 7 offers Cross-Buy on Xbox One and Windows 10

Microsoft is the new master of unlocking.

Resident Evil 7 will be a Cross-Buy affair on Xbox One and Windows 10, meaning that if you buy it on one platform you'll get it on both.

The news was just confirmed by head of Xbox Phil Spencer on Twitter.

This should make Microsoft's platforms more competitive with the PS4 version, which supports PlayStation VR - something that will be exclusive for a year.
