Microsoft plans SmartGlass support 'for all first-party titles'
Recently unveiled tech to be a single app
Microsoft is to incorporate its new SmartGlass tech into all of its future first-party titles.
As reported by Joystiq, Microsoft Studios corporate VP Phil Spencer said that once the tech is released in autumn, new games will allow users to connect their Xbox 360 with their tablets and smartphones.
"It just makes so much sense for a developer who wants to supply, maybe not time-critical information, like 'that enemy is getting ready to shoot you,' but information that augments what's happening on screen,” he said.
"I think you'll see information sharing, context sharing while you're in the room, with video and with games, as well as gameplay happening in more distributed environments."
Spencer confirmed that SmartGlass would come in the form of a single app that can be used to sync up with a user’s gamertag.
