Xbox One is looking to step up their game. It could also increase purchases of Surface tablets.

Microsoft.

Xbox.

Two names, only one will last. Xbox as a console won't last forever, the sane applies to PlayStation. They will disappear as nothing but a brand name and an app of sorts accessible via your TV, phone or PC etc. The console is literally on its way out, not today... maybe not in 10 years. But they are, streaming and the cloud are doing it. So Microsoft doing this is technological advancement, they'd phase Xbox out for one universally accessible gaming service across all platforms. As would Sony! So arguing how Xbox might shape gaming... you damn right it is, but not in a console vs console world!

"Is Xbox One taking gaming to the next level? Will we no longer be restricted to our living room? " isnt sony with ps4 and vita already doing this? and cant we already play some ps3 games (and more to come, and aswell ps1 and ps2) with a couple of devices such of phones, tablets and tvs that can be connected to internet to use PSNow? so it isnt somethings completely new. Now with that tech of Hololens we will be seeing some cool stuff i bet, but again it wont the revolutionary in gaming but i can see it be big in social and business departments.

ps now streams your games from sony's servers, not the ps4. sony also decided to so far limit it to the ps4 and only have ps3 games available (so far) but yes, in thoery sony can do exactly what microsoft has shown with windows 10. difference is on the xbox one it will be widely available to any device running windows 10 and with a free upgrade to windows 8.1 and windows 7 owners that opens up millions and millions of potential devices to stream to.

both services (ps now and windows 10 streaming) so far offer 720p and 30 fps streaming. microsoft is trying to bring that to 1080p and 60 fps.

microsoft could also allow streaming from other devices other than the xbox one too (that run windows 10) but they will likely focus only on the xbox one for now because they want to sell that hardware.

one other thing, microsoft seems to also want to support more cross platform gaming with the pc like we saw with fable legends. that also means full xbox live feature set with recording, voice chat and everything.

thats the thing, microsoft will make you pay for xbox live on pc to be able to cross play with xbox one.

most ps3 games are 720p anyway its not like if you could stream at 1080p it would look like a current gen title. and 1080p 60fps will require alot more of bandwidth so even if they achieve it, im not saying they wont, it will not be for everyone

Hooray, we can now play on our PC in our office or in our lap, or in bed on our tablet.

I think remote play...no matter what name it goes by...is a neat feature, and I use it often on my Vita and my PSP before that, but it doesn't really revolutionize anything. All it does is let us move around a bit more and have more access to our games.

Otherwise, PSNow seems to be pushing things more since it's not device dependant, whereas with remote play you are required to have a server device like the PS3, PS4, or now X1...and maybe the Wii U if you want to include their game pad.

What I find funny is that there is absolutely nothing preventing Sony from releasing a remote play app for Windows or Mac. I'm surprised we haven't seen one already.
