As Xbox One gets a little sweeter, HoloLens gets Xbox Live

Tech Industry
There's a new achievement to unlock. Xbox Live games can be played on Hollow Lens. I'm Bridget Carey, this is your CNet update. More details have been revealed about Microsoft Holo Lens Augmented Reality Head Sets. The Company says the Headset will work with X box Live Games and that it is going to be set free into the wild some time in the next year. If you're unfamiliar with Hololens, this is a headset with a transparent screen in front of your eyes. So you can see what's in front of you, but it makes it appear that other computer-generated objects are floating around the room. Maybe you'll put buttons in your hallway, a to-do list on the fridge. A video player on your wall. Even the game Minecraft can look like it's just sitting on a table in front of you. And you can control all of this with your voice and hand gestures. You can anchor these computer objects to physical locations within the real world, and they remain there, regardless if you walk away or move your head. That means you can attach Windows to your home windows if you so desire. Microsoft said the online multiplayer games of XBox Live can work on the Halo Lens. And independent game developers can also make games for the headset if games will also be playable on Windows 10 computers. Because Microsoft's goal these days is to make all of it's Systems work together as one. You can expect there to be one, universal store for apps and games, that can be accessed from different devices. In an interview the BBC, Microsoft CEO Satya Nadella said the HoloLens would first be released To software developers within the next year. And from their it may be tested in commercial use cases before it will be something that you can buy for yourself. There's a big video gaming conference going on now in Germany called Gamescom and Microsoft used the event to make some more announcements about updates coming to the XBox One. Next year. The game system will be able to record television shows like a DVR. The Xbox One has something called a OneGuide. It acts as a digital TV channel guide, and you'll be able to set which shows you want to record automatically. The shows can then be streamed to watch on a Windows 10 device. And in November, you'll be able to play old Xbox, Xbox 360 games on the new Xbox One. But for starters, it's only 100 titles that you can download. It's gonna be all of your games. Also, in November. The Xbox One is getting a new interface to work with Windows 10. That means, you can use Cortana to make voice commands and ask questions. But, you need to connect a camera to be able to do that. From the Xbox. And if you don't have a Kinect, maybe you'll want this new Xbox One Shockpad accessory. It's a keypad that just snaps on the bottom of the game controller. That's it for this Tech News update. You can always get more news at CNET.com. From our studios in New York, I'm Bridget Carey.
