Watch: Microsoft shows us how to port Android apps to Windows 10

At the Build Developer Conference on Wednesday, Microsoft shocked us all by announcing that Android and iOS app developers would be able to port their apps to Windows 10. Rumors had been circulating for quite some time, but it was still hard to believe that Microsoft would cave on its mobile ecosystem until we actually saw it happen on stage. More →

Incredible DirectX 12 tech demo from Square Enix shows off the future of gaming

Incredible DirectX 12 tech demo from Square Enix shows off the future of gaming

Over the past several months, we’ve seen a few Unreal Engine 4 tech demos that have blown our minds, but they were just that – tech demos.

Walking around a stunningly modeled digital apartment is fascinating, but it’s not exactly my idea of an exhilarating video game concept, which is why I was thrilled to see Square Enix make an appearance at Microsoft Build to show off a DirectX 12 demo that looked unlike anything I’ve ever seen.

There were plenty of announcements to get excited about during the Microsoft Build Developer Conference this week, but HoloLens stole the show. Microsoft’s wearable holographic computer was first announced during a Windows 10 event in January, but we didn’t get much more than a general overview of the hardware.

This week, Microsoft went into much greater detail, and CNET has the scoop on the five fundamental features of HoloLens.

Microsoft’s HoloLens will be amazing, but it won’t be cheap

One of the most exciting products Microsoft has in the pipeline is the HoloLens headset that’s supposed to completely change the way you interact with your computer, and the device will go on sale at some point in the future. However, don’t expect the headset to be that affordable, at least not at first. More →

Microsoft still doesn’t want to say what Windows 10 will eventually cost you

Microsoft will let current Windows users who are rocking at least a version of Windows 7 on their computers upgrade free of charge to Windows 10 in the first year after the new operating system launches. However, the company still doesn’t want to say what it’ll cost to get Windows 10 after that – or anything else related to pricing schemes in the future for following updates. As CNET reports, Microsoft is more interested in having as many people jump on Windows 10, and it’s doing so by making this major OS update available as a free download to millions of users. More →

Don’t get too excited about running Windows 10 on your phone anytime soon

Microsoft will release its ambitious Windows 10 operating system at some point this summer, but only desktops, laptops and tablets will get it at first, The Verge reports. Smartphone users currently on Windows Phone 8.1 looking forward to receive the Windows 10 for phones update will have to wait longer, the company has confirmed, as the launch schedule for the mobile version doesn’t coincide with the desktop release.

You can try the new Windows 10 Start Menu right now for free

Windows 8 was an absolute disaster. Microsoft’s attempt to bridge the gap between desktop computers and tablets was a failure, and it ended up driving customers crazy. In fact, it was such a disaster that several top Microsoft executives are no longer with the company. Now, with Windows 10, Microsoft will try to undo much of the damage it has done over the past few years.

And from the looks of things, the company is off to a good start. More →

Microsoft has big plans for the Xbox One at E3 this year – here are the latest details

It’s been a relatively slow start for the Xbox One in 2015, with hardly any exclusives to speak of save for Screamride and Ori and the Blind Forest. That’s not to say that the PS4 has been outpacing Microsoft’s console by much, but if the Xbox One is going to stand a chance of taking the lead this year, it’s going to need to have a big E3.

According to Phil Spencer, that’s exactly what Microsoft has in store. More →
