    So subtle that you're probably the only person who thought of it ;) :D

    While I probably won't use it to play games, I probably will use it to keep an eye on updates and installs - something that I wish the Glass app already did :(

    Unless they have changed it from the testing, while you could connect you were unable to do much with out an X1 controller connected via USB to the PC.

    Not sure what you mean by this tbh.

    All this allows is me to sit in my study on my Windows 10 PC with a XB1 controller plugged in and play games from my Xbox not why its a stupid console idea

    So, I can sit and play x box games on my pc that's in a different room to my x box?.
    Why would I want to play x box games when I'm sat at a pc?
    If I want to play x box games I'll sit in front of my x box.

    Perhaps he means that by putting the playing onto a PC, macros could be used to automate stuff. Although I would have thought Microsoft would have thought of that and made it difficult. :D

    @Nikumba- I've wanted a remote KVM unit for toilet gaming for years, but for PC.


    -Oh God! Didn't X-box have some kind of snapshot of the other player-thing? Imagine the mayhem of 'sh*tter-cam!'

    Ah fair enough, though Steam Streaming does a fairly decent job. Though there was a rumour MS will eventually allow Win10 - Win10 streaming and also Win10 to X1 streaming
