Microsoft today announced that “Project Spark” beta program is extending onto Xbox One. Microsoft launched “Project Spark” Beta on Windows 8.1 devices in December 2013 and since then people are creating their old game worlds using this game’s revolutionary toolset. Since it is available both on Xbox One and Windows 8.1, with cross-platform capabilities and through the power of Cloud Saving, “Project Spark” creators can build on a Windows 8.1 device, and then pick-up a controller to continue playing on Xbox One or vice versa.
