Unlike the reveal of previous versions of Microsoft’s operating systems, Windows 10 event was evidently different. Windows 10 is not only limited to PC’s but it has also been unleashed on Xbox consoles.
Lets take a look at what Windows 10 has in store for PC users as well as Xbox One users.
Windows Holographic with HoloLens headset
“Dreaming Beyond Virtual Worlds”
One of the most fascinating announcement till date from Microsoft is the reveal of Windows Holographic. This futuristic device includes HoloLens headset which is termed as the “most advanced holographic computer the world has ever seen.”
You can imagine the power of Windows Holographic which is a self-contained computer, including a CPU, a GPU, and a dedicated holographic processor. Users will not have to fuzz with wires or PC connection, Windows Holographic is a self-contained Hologram Generator.
Even though Windows Holographic is in its initial stages of development, it has found its way into gaming. According to Take-Two Interactive CEO Strauss Zelnick Windows Holographic is an “extraordinary” experience.
Targeting Xbox One Game Streaming at 1080p/60fps
The streaming service which is currently running at 720p/30fps does not seem to satisfy players around the world. To fix this, Microsoft will target Xbox One Game Streaming at 1080p/60fps. The full resolution HD service is expected to launch in late 2015.
Microsoft will do its best for achieving the most desired resolution figure but players should be aware of the fact that the output will depend on bandwidth speeds of your connection.
Cross Platform Play With Xbox One now Possible, Wont Force It Though
The latest version of Windows, Windows 10 has almost erased the line between PC and console games. According to Xbox One division boss Phil Spencer, this new system will allow cross-platform play between PCs and the Xbox One which seems like an initiative towards the formation of consolidated environment.
The very first game to support this feature will be Fable: Legends. Even if the Cross Platform Play option does not seems to be a big deal at the moment, imagine games like GTA V, League of Legends or The Elder Scrolls Online using this feature to the fullest.
The feature of Cross Platform Play With Xbox One raised some concerns, will Microsoft force this feature for every game? According to Spencer they wont: “If somebody decides that cross-platform play isn’t something that’s going to make their game great, there’s no way I’d ever create a (publishing requirement) that says you must do this.”
