Announcements From The Windows 10 Event

No comments:

Windows 10 will be a free upgrade from Windows 7, 8.1 and 8.1 Phone for a year following it's official release.

The same OS on multiple platforms (desktops, tablets, and phones)

Universal app will work across all platforms

Internet Explorer being replaced with Project Spartan

DirectX 12 will allow cross-platform play between Windows 10 and Xbox One

Fable Legends will be the first cross-platform game

Phil Spencer was quoted, "We think enabling people to play multiplayer games on Windows 10, across Xbox One and Windows 10, will unlock the potential of Xbox Live and grow social network that's there today." Duh. Wonder why it took them 10 years to finally listen.

CES 2015 - Interview with Nate Mitchell (Oculus VR, Co-Founder)

(Click pic for video interview)

This is a great, informative interview and has me even more excited about the consumer release of Oculus VR headset. The headset version shown at CES 2015 is Crescent Bay. Nate confirmed that it runs at 90 Hz and that the final consumer version will run at least at that same frequency. He wouldn't mention the resolution; however, from other articles I've read, written by folks who have been using DK2 (1920x1080) on a daily basis, it's definitely an obvious pixel boost (est. 2560x1440). He also made some great points about developer's needed to create games capable of running at high refresh rates and GPU makers needing to create more powerful cards to run at high resolutions 90+ Hz.
