While speaking to Joystiq at E3 Phil Spencer, Corporate VP of Microsoft Studios, revealed that SmartGlass will support all of the company’s games after it goes public in the fall. SmartGlass will be a simple app that includes your Gamertag and decides what features are available for whatever you are playing or watching. Phil Spencer described it as, “You don’t have to log in and out of each app – you know, ‘I’m gonna start the Mass Effect app, and now I’m gonna start the Game of Thrones app.’ So you have this surface, this smart surface that sits on any device that you already own that’s always in sync with what’s happening on the television, and it knows where to go and grab the right content to display at the right time, to make sure that if you’re playing Halo, then the Halo surface is available on SmartGlass.”
We hope to see more on Smart Glass in the future and look forward to the possiblites it brings to Kinect. After all just look at Homerun Stars and that is only the first announced Kinect game that will be utilizing SmartGlass. You can most definitely color us interested.
