At E3 2015, Microsoft announced the Xbox Game Preview, a programme that allows users to trial and buy games that are still in-development. Among the first wave of included titles was Elite: Dangerous.
Xbox Game Preview is functionally similar to the Steam Early Access programme, but instead of buying an unfinished product up-front, Xbox One owners are able to play a trial, then decide if they want to commit.
"The Xbox One [release] is a timed exclusive," he said previously, going on to add it will come to "Mac of course, then down the line [Frontier] will support more [platforms], including PS4."
