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.

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.
