I have a xbox 360 game that needs media centre im using windows 8.1
I really don’t want to pay for it
It does not come for free.
But Microsoft lo longer sells Windows 8.1 Media Center; try amazom.com, etc.
As of October 30, 2015, the Windows 8 and 8.1 Pro Pack (which upgraded Windows 8 Home or 8.1 Home to Windows 8 Pro or 8.1 Pro, with Media Center) and Media Pack (which added Media Center to Windows 8 Pro or 8.1 Pro) are no longer available for purchase
from Microsoft. Previously purchased feature pack licenses will still do, and compelling feature packs may still be available for purchase from third-party retailers. Verification for these products is still available.
