Integrating "all the devices you already own."

Microsoft has announced Xbox Smartglass, a new feature for Xbox 360 and Microsoft tablets that integrates media content across Xbox 360, phone, and tablet.

If you’re watching an episode of Game of Thrones on your Xbox 360, for example, you will see a map on your tablet that follows the events of the show. If you’re watching Sherlock Holmes, you’ll see cast information. If you’re playing Madden, you can use Smartglass to select plays. If you’re playing Halo 4, you will be able to access Halo Waypoint via your tablet.

Smartglass will work with “all the devices you already own.” It will launch this fall.

Internet Explorer was also confirmed for Xbox 360. You will be able to use Smartglass to browse the web with Internet Explorer. It will launch this year.

    Slightly cool.

    As a company that makes atrocious HW it would be wise for them to implement this feature across all IOS/Android devices.

    Also, I await everyone pretending Sony and Nintendo havent done this already with the pS3/PSV/PSP connectivity as well as The GC/GBA and Wii-U tablet controller.

          I honestly have no idea what you are trying to say…It’s like we’re typing in two different languages.

            Let me sum it down for your level IQ

            Microsoft + Money + Multiplats = Timed Exclusive & 360 ads for the game.

              No, really that comment was badly formed so no need to be arrogant and insult someone’s IQ
