I find it funny how Microsoft realised that an in-built screen is a bad idea, but The Unmentionable found it to be good.
No doubt. Even the very biased IGN voiced their disdain for that "other" controller scheme. It sounds more like a distraction than anything. SmartGlass, on the other hand, sounds like exactly what Microsoft wanted it to be -- a supplement. Being able to participate in games like Watch_Dogs and The Division while I'm away from home is definitely something I'd be interested in, and receiving calls from NPCs in Dead Rising 3...? Well, that's just cool.
Yeah I agree, the current SmartGlass is more of an silly tool, I use it for typing and other silly stuff.
The ability to sit and play a version of Watchdogs or The Division while I munch my lunch in work just give's me raging wood.
I get bored playing Angry Birds and other silly mobile games as they don't really link to anything except the odd FB update with 'I got 3 stars in this' messing around on my iPad and/or playing Xbox are 2 of my favourite passtimes. Mashing them together just makes sense!
I can see an addiction forming here and I aint going to no rehab!
