4:29 /

What's next for gaming? Augmented Reality? Avatar holograms? Always On's Molly Wood visits the E3 gaming conference in Los Angeles to find out.

It's only my third day 83 and -- almost completely lost my voice but. -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- Something about. All that glitz and glam and big time graphics and costumes and flashing lights it was all -- But -- felt like underneath that might be a slightly rotten core. Software game sales down 42% over last year console sales are down with no hope on the horizon other than the confusing in -- boring -- you. I decided to take a look at the future of gaming starting with the biggest instructor of all the phone in your pocket. Yeah and the hardcore gamers we don't like to admit that we play games on touch screens but we're all doing it we'll have Smartphones and that we we that we might not think -- as gaming the one with sound the bus was playing games. Speaking of the phone in your pocket here's Microsoft again promising to integrate the Xbox with phones tablets and TVs. Using a concept called Smart glass. Microsoft has promised this kind of thing before although this time they're actually kind of fire alarm. This is gonna update because it knows what I'm doing on them on the console and say -- I you're gonna watch the north remembers. -- -- -- that now I start getting into the experience so I have controls hair over here I can cause I can fast forward. The -- to have this interactive map. I get this map of west -- Has locations change in the episode I mean on the -- and a this is actually gonna update dynamically as the show progresses. And this principle of Xbox Smart about knowing what's going on on the TV and pushing information continues to you don't have to do the word. It's really part of the value for the consumer. Can -- Decent game of grounds but don't worry Smart -- also works with games here's -- concept using Xbox Smart glass and halo four. You could use this second screen to get more game information even accept multiplayer requests. See no -- is my games I am fired up about halo one -- thing is though every time is it like -- big long trailer trailer you know I really wanna see the halo movie. Did culminates. Back to those sixty dollar discs and those got to go to. Enter cloud gaming all your games anywhere maybe even without a console. They'll look. We want so that your next generation younger -- next next TV buying the next tablet you -- you -- are able to. To take data gaming experience wherever you happen to me wanna make it is convenient -- as possible and -- -- got both the 300 games. On -- he said tablets and Smartphones. PCs and -- And -- our own TV device online game system but also really excited. Also be -- relationship analogy. -- integrate the online services this next generation. -- G you'll see its every move there while you know what about the latency revitalize. What I try. Cloud and mobile are one thing that I'm ready for augmented and even virtual reality. Sony almost thrilled me with an augmented reality books they've turned out to require a real wind. Although we are getting closer. From attending classes interventional medicine can be interactive windows on the street I can imagine this thing has been possible. How -- at all I think that time technology moves so fast. I was kind of surprised to find that while I'm ready for -- gaming implant some pro gamers are not in a hurry for that future of gaming. We have the connect now to connect is awesome I love I love that we as well. But when it comes -- -- -- competitive gaming when it comes shooting games I don't wanna go around. And go and do virtual reality and I want now go -- -- lives as well -- like playing basketball to go outside and maybe get advantages that you -- -- -- -- -- -- -- where they -- Yeah totally aware. I don't -- public got a jacket -- I can feel like the bullet hitting me in and heard snag every letting myself -- my mind limited. Yeah. So maybe Tsquared isn't quite ready yet but my feeling at. May need to be that for a few more years but after that -- It's time to actually get creative. I will be waiting.
