The publications on the E3 speak volumes! Microsoft wants to achieve nothing with the Xbox, to be the focal point in the living room. Xbox SmartGlass is mentioned first. Thus, you can check the Xbox from your tablets and smartphones and stream to them.
Now you may say “nothing special”, because that already do that Apple with AirPlay and Google with their system. It should work but system-wide. You need to buy a Windows phone so no extra.
But why do you need this integration? For what you still announces: Xbox Music, interact with games and Internet Explorer.
Grade in the latter case does not interest people, just because people get ‘the Web’ on the TV itself is super easy, but because Microsoft also, again could gain a small advantage over chrome and Firefox. Provided, this advantage is also used. It would also completely waive keyboards and builds on a panel about Kinect and language in addition to the mobile devices.
Xbox Music should arise, however, with 30 million songs and make for the music listening experience on the console and in the living room. See, clear signal, where the Xbox and you want!
You will not forget also the fact core box, for too many new, and above all good games have been announced, including Halo 4, call of duty – black OPS 2, resident evil 6, splinter cell blacklist and Forza horizon.
