Looks fantastic, but I'm not holding my breath until I've seen it IRL. Many things can change and we still don't know much except what we see in the video. When more details arrive it will be interesting to see what it says.

You can install Xbox games on PC. And it seems to me that it will be a part of a "game pass" where you pay a monthly subscription. There seems to be 2 options. One for Xbox only ($10) and one for Xbox and PC ($15).

The Video says "Xbox exclusive" and the description also only talks about Xbox. So not customizable.

Found this explanation:

„Xbox is now what they call their gaming platform. ALL games made by Microsoft are called Xbox games now. Xbox games can be exclusive to PC, console or both. It’s their new branding, and it’s what we have all been told to adhere to in the gaming industry.“

As long as it's not subscription based where you are paying some type of monthly fee.   So many unknowns at this early stage.
