Microsoft has revealed that the world is ready to start using tablets and smartphones as second-screen devices and even if they're not SmartGlass will entice them.
This might be worth putting on techspy, I'm not too sure. Anyway, I don't think so - I've just got 50" I don't want to revert to 5" on my phone or whatever it is.
What I want to know is weather or not you will be able to stream your music from your phone, to your Xbox and out of your Hi-Fi speakers, similar to apples airplay. If so that would be awesome.
I've been doing that with my samsung phone and my ps3 for the past 2 years with allplay. Does the xbox not have a pnp type doodad?
i bought a blue tooth adapter for my speakers and stream music directly to them. i also have audio coming from my xbox simutaneously with no probs
You can, but i mean control the whole experience with your phone/tablet without having to pick up the controller.
If the Wii U does have the same success as the Wii.... you probably won't get the chance.
...With a little help from Apple and Nintendo that are already pushing second screens. But of course it'll be all thanks to SmartGlass... :/
I don't know whether this is just me, but whatever. Smartglass looks like the WiiU controller (the screen and its features, with adding a second screen and implementing extra features). That's just what I think about it.
Well, considering SmartGlass is free with anyone who has just about any smartphone or tablet, I'd say they have a pretty good shot with the current Xbox userbase.
It may be free by itself, but like everything else with XBox you HAVE to pay the 30-60 dollars a year to use any of it.
No Wii U will They are first Talk about misleading
I'm not really blown away by the tech in its current form. However I do think a second screen would be great for gaming. Imaging being able to use your iTouch/iPad/PS Vita to organise your inventory or equip weapons in an RPG, or access in-game content independent of your TV. The touch interface would make a lot of interactions much smoother than a standard controller, especially in online play, where you cannot pause the action. I'm hoping the Dust 514 NeoCom App has this kind of cross play ability when it launches.
I'm excited about the gaming potential for smart glass; when MS gets behind something they give it 100% support unlike some other companies....Sorry, I'm still pissed off about buying a Move. Although not everything they make is worth the time and money but at least they try their best.
has microsoft not heard of the nintedo DS? heres a hint the DS stands for dual screens. so seeing as how nintedo has millions upon millions of Ds,Ds lite, DSi, dsi xl out in the wild, not including the 3DS. i think nintedo made the 2nd screen mainstream.
