Microsoft just released two new trailers for Windows 10 showcased at Build 2015, and unsurprisingly, they're full of gaming, embodying the company's new-found dedication to PC gaming and its interaction with the Xbox One.
Windows 10 looks pretty cool.
It does, I'm loving all the universal platform stuff they are doing with it. Edit Damm was that a snippet of Halo5 campaign? Live action? Sneaky bastards.
Yeah, they got Halo 5 in the first vid and Fable Legend in the second. It looked cool.
I'm really excited for Win 10. its a much needed upgraded from the epic Win 7.
It is pretty cool, atm is the best of Win7 and 8 together. But it currently has some annoying bugs (its a beta duh!). It actually caused my Windows 7 partition to become corrupted, had to re-install it. It seems Microsoft it's actually going forwards with the "Only one OS" thing. I predict W10 to be a real successor to W7, but with some hiccups or outcries from some of its users.
But Halo 5 isn't coming to Windows. (As someone who is in the W10 technical preview, its a horribly buggy OS. Still has a long way to go before final release)
What build are you on iTech? My current build seems to have fixed all bugs, well I haven't experienced any since my last build update 2 days ago (build 10042) The recycle bin is nos square all of a sudden, seems weird. I like windows 10 though and really love the xbox app.
Unless you consider that the Xbox One is going to be running Windows, in which case Halo is sort of coming to it. Or maybe Microsoft's flagship gaming IP is going to be placed at the forefront of the "one platform" and "universal store" vision? Stranger things have happened.
I'm using windows Technical Preview too (Now known as Insider Preview) and if you don't do a clean install of the OS then it will be buggy. I clean installed Version 10074 yesterday and most of the bugs are gone. Anyway I see this concept as pointless. You have to have your Xbox one powered on with the game running to play it on your PC. Thats just wasting electricity. I see it kind of useful with a household with more than one person though because one person can watch TV on the TV your Xbox is connected to while you play the game on your PC.
Does that mean I can play X1 games on my laptop?
If you have an X1 then yes you can.
You can stream X1 games to any windows 10 pc, yes.
I am looking forward to checking out Windows 10. The integration with X1 is intriguing. I am not an X1 owner but nonetheless find this interesting. I wonder if a more unified approach to the X1 and Win10 platforms will translate to titles being released on both platforms regularly? That would be interesting. The game streaming from X1 to pc seems cool. Be nice if it also went the other way to display a pc game via X1 on the big screen.
Wow windows 10 does look real cool. I like that it's taking the better parts of 8.1 and integrating them into the classic desktop. It actually looks very easy and fun to use. Plus cortana should be a nice addition for pc and Xbox one. The fact that it's a free upgrade is smart on MS part, helps shed the greedy corporate image a bit. Can't wait to try it myself. I really like Nadayas quote about how they want to move from people needing windows to wanting windows. That's the kind of mindset that could get them back in tune with the younger generation.
*Drools* It can't come soon enough.
Lovely. MS's plan to unify all their platforms under the windows 10 umbrella is coming together pretty well. Soon. Very soon. :)
I think MS is taking all the right steps in unifying so many platforms and devices under one umbrella, like you said. My biggest concern is how well the adoption of it all goes. They are doing what everyone hoped they did so many years ago. We just gotta wait for developers from every industry to now adopt the umbrella approach. I just don't know how long that'll take. Companies get stuck in their ways and hate change. Obviously this change is good and very productive, but it's still a big change and companies may be slow to adopt. I hope it happens fast, but I'm skeptical of companies doing the necessary work right out of the gate. We'll see by the end of the year how many industries get onboard.
1 second tease of a new halo 5 live action? ohhh yeahhhh
Actually it was two seconds. So yeah, thats awesome :P
you remember the 2 seconds of locke tease?, and came out a few weeks later the full trailer. This is another <3
This looks sweet
I be testing that streaming when its out.
Actually looking forward to an OS... it's a strange feeling.
So many great things included in this version. Let's hope they build on it with solid updates and not jump to windows 11 too quick.
Supposedly they aren't going to make a new Windows for a looong time, it's all updates and refreshes from here on out.
Game changer..and it is totally FREE! Well done MS. clap clap
I am surprise Microsoft has been getting a lot of hype and good news the last 2 days. Normally around E3 is when the media try to release all the lies and over saturate every thing Microsoft does into bad press.
E3 starts earlier and earlier every year
They're not really giving anyone an opportunity for bad press right now. They have really been knocking it out of the park lately.
meh, im sticking to linux. Windows is a goddamn headache
Are you serious? Linux is literally twice as complicated as Windows. Windows 8 wasn't very good but xp,7 and now 10 smokes Linux.
Definitely for my primary OS. I still need Windows unfortunately for most games.
@GiantFriendlyCrab Your post gave me a headache
There are many reasons to use linux over windows but simplicity is not one of them.
i use both windows and linux. they both have advantages over each other in some ways. besides, why limit yourself? if you buy a new pc, chances are you gonna get windows as standard, adding linux to it costs nothing. best of both. dual booting FTW!!
Windows 10 looks great. For some reason it seems every other OS windows makes is great. Millenium crap, xp great, vista crap, windows 7 great, windows 8 crap, windows 10 seems to be great as well. Can't wait to try this on an old computer as well to see how well it performs.
windows 8 isn't crap
For multitasking it is, since you have to go back and forth from metro and desktop. Very annoying and unproductive.
I think you're using Windows 8 wrong if you find it worse for multitasking.
well i can tell you that windows 10 TP runs perfectly fine on my 10 year old pc. specs: AMD athlon xp 64 bit (single core) 4GB ddr400 RAM 80GB sata HDD 1GB nvidia GT610 Gigabyte motherboard. model GA-K8N51PVMT-9. to be honest there is slight lag but its not noticeable to the average windows user. i suppose i could get greater performance from the os if i turn off the flashy UI bits but im not complaining with the way it runs with everything turned on. believe me when i say MS got it right with Windows 10.
That's how you make "innovations" these days. Take a popular feature and take it away. Then one version later you put it back in and sell it as a new feature. I'm pretty happy with win 8.1 at the moment. It's not perfect of course and that's why I'm kinda looking forward to win10. The most annoying thing right now is that they have two different UIs in one OS. On a desktop PC the Tablet/Modern UI sucks and on a Tablet the regular Desktop UI sucks. And still you kinda need both UI's on both platform to fully use your device. It looks like they are trying to get rid of that though. Only reservation I have is about Cortana and that kinda stuff. I just hope you can turn that shit off if you want to... It will never work in my native language anyway.
All you have to do is refrain from saying "Hey Cortana"
Yeah that should work :) But I guess I don't want Cortana "listening" all the time. I'm a fan of turning stuff off completely if I don't use it.
Its cool in theory but its Microsoft , so it sucks....also fails in comparison to the PS4 and Sonys new OS which does everything faster and at a higher resolution ...(trying to get some bubbles back )
>trying to get bubbles back Might as well start a new account, with a decent username too
Thas not how it works
windows definitely getting back in their game, can't wait to mix this with the xbox.
SWEET BRING IT ON
I've been doing development work for HP for many years. For the past 7 months I have been working with the bi-weekly developers builds of the new Windows OSs. WIN 10 and Win Server (10) are game changers. I would rather work with either of them than ANY version of Mac or Linux any day of the week. The last couple of weeks I've been working with the Win 10/Xbox One integration/streaming. You people have no idea what you can look forward to. The world of personal computing is about to take a quantum leap forward.
Ummm all they have to do is download the beta, it isn't hard. You aren't the only one using it.
The "beta" is weeks out of date.
nice to hear I been in Microsoft corner ever since the first xbox to applying to Best Buy working as a Microsoft advisor I cant wait to see what is in store
In (1:15) Could that be halo wars 2???
Ironwolf... What type of development do you do?
Enterprise network management and printer management software.
For years PC has been left out in the dark with subpar games and lineups. Now pc gaming is coming back stronger and better. As a gamer (and it doesn't matter what platform I like the most) I'm happy to see this merger with Xbox and PC. PC gaming has always been under appreciated same with the Xbox One. Now with Windows 10 comes the very thing we have always dreamt about. And that is crossplay and the ability to stream games from Xbox to PC. Awesome move Microsoft. It's a win for the gaming industry and gamers.
Loving everything I see.. Can't wait to upgrade
I used to use windows because i need to....but now i want to. Looks promising
I can't wait period I love my xbox just bought a gaming PC can't wait for streaming on the pc
What would be cool if you could play two player but stream the 2nd player on a different screen. I would play the hands on jack collection all day with my wife in co-op.
