After being trolled on Twitter about the prospect of Windows 10 having Xbox Live integration, Larry Hyrb, aka Major Nelson, has confirmed that gamers on that platform will not have to pay a subscription fee. Basically, any games on Windows 10 or Windows Phone will not need an Xbox Live Gold subscription to play multiplayer online titles. Check out Larry’s tweet for confirmation below.
