    In the future Xbox One will be powered by Windows 10
    I wonder, does this refer to future versions of Xbox One or a Windows 10 update for Xbox One?

    Microsoft are going to have walk the walk not just talk the talk when it comes to gaming on the PC, we have heard the same tripe from them for the last 14 years since they abandoned gaming on the PC in favor of their new console.

    Does it hurt all these presenters to dress smartly at gaming conferences? Us gamers are not hippies who wear weird t-shirts or wear weird tights.

    That is the question we should all be asking. Dad everything that's going on with MS, Adobe and other software products though there are big changes happening. I just hope they coexist with each other properly from the beginning e.g. gfs card drivers.

    It'll be interesting to see precisely what "powered by" means. That's very open to interpretation.

    That's just hipster, cool, developer types... I don't think they dress like that to fit in with the gamers, that is their office wear.

    Hmm intriguing but I can't believe any of the news out of Redmond these days. They've neglected PC hangers for 10+ years and held up the development of games with their blasted consoles and finally they switch from using their severely outdated console to a product that became outdated in the technology world a month after it's release. I'd love more performance for games and I'd love it even more if it didn't come from MS.

    Anyone else get the feeling Microsoft are planning to suck the money they've lost from the Xbox One cock up from the PC?

    I actually saw most of the presentation and applauded that Microsoft is building Steam into Windows 10. For some reason Phil kept referring to it as the XBox app, though.

    I'd much rather just have DX12 for Win7. Windows 10 is still too "touch-oriented" for my taste.

    On the whole the presentation seemed a bit amateurish, though. At least nothing crashed...
