    We're going to start the next chapter for Windows 10 with new devices.
  • Roger Cheng 10/6/2015 2:10:28 PM
    He hints at products from Microsoft AND partners.
  • Roger Cheng 10/6/2015 2:10:55 PM
    The devices are designed for entertainment, health, productivity, home, work, in schools or on the go, he says.

    Over the coming weeks, we'll be joining our partners as they unveil their device lineup.
  • Roger Cheng 10/6/2015 2:11:18 PM
    This morning, we're here to talk about Microsoft devices.

    Lots of "devices" -- which basically means new Win 10 laptops -- coming for the holiday season. Many were teased at IFA last month.
  • Roger Cheng 10/6/2015 2:11:35 PM
    We designed our devices to create and reinvent categories, he says.

    Myerson touts the games lineup for the Xbox One in the holiday season. This holiday, all Xbox One consoles will get Windows 10.
  • Scott Stein 10/6/2015 2:12:20 PM
    Xbox One being discussed because it'll be Windows 10-enabled soon, too.

    Myerson reiterates the backward compatibility of the Xbox One to Xbox 360 games, first announced at E3.
  • dan.ackerman 10/6/2015 2:12:53 PM
    Eh, I gave away all my 360 games years ago. Games, especially console discs, are inherently transitory experiences.
  • Scott Stein 10/6/2015 2:13:05 PM
    I'd still love to see Xbox One get some Windows 10 apps and suddenly become something really PC-like, in a good way
  • Roger Cheng 10/6/2015 2:13:11 PM
    Microsoft will roll out custom Xbox One units based on games like Halo 5 and Forza Motorsport 6.

    Myerson talks up the Elite controller as well.
  • dan.ackerman 10/6/2015 2:13:27 PM
    That Elite controller, however, looks interesting -- if only because MS is betting someone, somewhere will pay $150 for a gamepad.

    Gaming and booming audio: memories of E3 flood back
  • Roger Cheng 10/6/2015 2:14:02 PM
    We're seeing glimpses of Halo 5, Gears of War, Forza Motorsport 6, etc.
  • dan.ackerman 10/6/2015 2:14:13 PM
    Hey, more game sequels!
  • Roger Cheng 10/6/2015 2:14:22 PM
    Stagehands are putting together something on stage in the dark.
  • John Falcone 10/6/2015 2:14:33 PM
    [Note that all of this Xbox news, so far, is nothing new.]
  • Roger Cheng 10/6/2015 2:14:45 PM
    And we've got a little setup with a couch, demo table and backdrop on stage now.
  • Roger Cheng 10/6/2015 2:14:52 PM
    HoloLens time.
  • Scott Stein 10/6/2015 2:14:53 PM
    HoloLens...here we go.

    HoloLens brings experiences into our real world, he says. That's called augmented reality.
  • Scott Stein 10/6/2015 2:15:17 PM
    I've tried this a couple of times: remarkable, but a limited field of view.
  • Sarah Tew 10/6/2015 2:15:26 PM
  • Scott Stein 10/6/2015 2:15:27 PM
    But it's untethered, which is really cool.
