Stephen Chapman of Zdnet has unearthed a internal Microsoft video showing the future of Windows Gaming Experiences. The video emphasized the following points,
“ My Friends and I connect and share our experiences across social networks. Our gaming experiences are not limited to a single platform or property, but extend inclusively across internet.
My avatar is my online identity. It represents my style, attitude, and character. I can see and personalize my avatar on the web, my PC, or while playing a game.
New Games and media are easy to discover and play. I can quickly search, find, and play the games and video media that are of interest to me.
From a 99 cent virtual item to a $49.99 game, I can spend my money as I see fit, Buying things enhances my gaming and entertainment experience.
The video ends with a great message from the Windows Gaming Experience group at Microsoft.
