Phil Spencer Promises Xbox and PC News During Windows 10 Event in January
Microsoft announced their newest operating system titled Windows 10 a few months ago. This will be their most innovative OS design since Windows 95. The technical preview is already available and has received rave reviews applauding its productivity. To unveil many of its features Microsoft will be hosting a Windows 10 reveal event scheduled for some time in January 2015. Xbox’s big man on campus, Phil Spencer, will be attending the event to help promote the new operating system and also reveal some Xbox and PC news that will influence the future of both industries. He responded recently on his Twitter, “I think what we will show will be interesting to both Windows and Xbox gamers,” when asked about what announcements the public can expect from the event. While no further details have been released since his open-ended comment on December 22nd, the rumor mill has been full of speculation in regards to what advancements Windows 10 will bring to the Xbox One.
The Xbox SmartGlass app has been an innovative tool for both the Xbox 360 and the Xbox One and is easily the best companion app for any current console. Through this application for IOS, Android, Windows Phone, and PC it is possible to track players progress, view gameclips, and use your mobile device or PC to remotely access your gaming console and use it as a remote control. This app continues to get better but the many users have commented in the forums about the ability to be able to play Xbox One games on the PC through a streaming process. Does this Xbox and PC news mean that Microsoft has finally heeded the forums demands and will be developing a new Xbox service that will make this a possibility? With Sony releasing PlayStation TV and their PlayStation Now service this seems like a very likely possibility to compete with their biggest industry rival. If this announcement turns out to be true it will truly be huge Xbox and PC news for Microsoft fans. We will have to wait for January however to see what good ol’ Phil has up his sleeve.
