The Xbox PC app will give a "rating" to your gaming hardware

The Xbox PC app, the same one that runs games on the Xbox Game Pass, often acts as a return to the ancient past of PC gaming. On this launcher, it is practically impossible to find some basic information, such as how long you have been playing a game or what its hardware requirements are. The latter is a bit comical because the hardware requirements for PC games are available on the Microsoft Store, but not as part of the Xbox app.

Fortunately, the Xbox team is working on further developing the app. In addition to the promised support for free installation of games in any folder we want, in the future, the Xbox application will display an analysis of your gaming hardware. When you click on a game within the app, you will get a tag that will tell you how the game in question will run on your hardware: good or bad. A small thing, but significant for Xbox Game Pass subscribers.

This is not the first attempt by Microsoft to (re) evaluate user hardware in the context of gaming. Back in the days of Windows Vista, a number system was used to give computer hardware a score of 1-5, and then those ratings were used in addition to the classic hardware requirements for Games for Windows Live titles. This proved impractical because the hardware aged with age, so the system was discontinued in later versions of Windows.
