and the part where you're forced to do anything?


I don't know, but I doubt the PlayStation app will be in the Windows store

Yeah, I might be getting a Surface Pro sometime this fall (I'm waiting for the rumored Pro 2) since my laptop is old and I'd like a tablet as well. Plus some of the smartglass stuff looks pretty interesting, like controlling drones in the Division, being a dungeon master in Fable Legends, commander mode in BF4, calling in airstrikes and exclusive missions in Dead Rising, and creating in Project Spark off the top of my head.

After seeing how The Division will use smartglass, and Battlefield 4, I might buy a tablet mainly for smartglass. It looks so damn fun!


sigh..I'm tired of correcting people on this but Battlefield 4 will not be using smart glass. It will run on its own special made Battlelog app only available on iOS and Android. No windows tablet support is available at this time. Kiss goodbye using your surface tablet for Battlefield 4.

I think that it's actually really cool that every game will use SmartGlass for Game Help.

When publishing a game, developers must submit a help manual that will aid players contextually either directly in-game or through SmartGlass

You know, if you're using a tablet to get game help, there is this little site called GameFAQs that could help with that. You might have heard of it.

Well I thought I was gonna get a PS4 since it had better specs and I thought multiplats would run better on it. I prefer the xbox one controller though.


Have you actually used both controllers?

There's already some neat uses of it with 360:

I just bought an RT. In fact, I'm posting from it. It's pretty awesome and way more convenient than a laptop for when I want to do some quick browsing while watching sports/tv and the smartglass app is pretty great! Pretty excited for it's expansion come XBO and I'm hoping it starts getting use as an interactive map for open world games such as Fallout, Elder Scrolls, Borderlands, etc....

After half a year you could probably find a PS4 Xbox Controller on amazon for half the price of a real controller

Is this a joke? Any tablet can run Smart Glass app and in fact PS4 will have it's own tablet apps. Pretty stupid reason to pick a console either way. Tablet apps are the ultimate gimmick this gen.


Because someone doesn't think exactly like you they're stupid? Grow up.


But he's right... Any smartphone/tablet has access to Smartglass. But Windows Phone/ Surface tablets will have a deeper integration with Xbox LIVE. And PS4 will also have some form of mobile app to use that will more than likely work similar to the Smartglass app.

Both systems have their pros and cons. Just make sure you know what you're looking for before you spend $400-$500 on one.

How so? I'm not being a jerk, I don't know anything about it and I would like to know.
