    Is this an MMO? I can't really tell.
  • Scott Stein 6/15/2015 5:40:30 PM
    Sea of Thieves.
  • Ian Sherr 6/15/2015 5:40:39 PM
    It's called Sea of Thieves.
  • dan.ackerman 6/15/2015 5:40:52 PM
    World of PirateCraft.
  • Josh Miller 6/15/2015 5:41:11 PM
  • dan.ackerman 6/15/2015 5:41:24 PM
    Ok, now here's where we get into the "beating a dead horse" category. Another Fable game.
  • Josh Miller 6/15/2015 5:41:45 PM
  • Jeff Bakalar 6/15/2015 5:41:53 PM
    Bring back Cuphead!
  • Ian Sherr 6/15/2015 5:41:54 PM
    Remember Ubisoft's "Assassin's Creed Blak Flag"? It came out in 2013 and was a really popular pirate game. Anyway, some reviewers said it should have just been its own pirate game. Seems Real listened.

  • dan.ackerman 6/15/2015 5:42:12 PM
    The IP here has been so kicked around over the years, I'm curious as to why MS keeps pushing new Fable games. Does anyone remember the awful Kinect on-rails Fable game?
  • Josh Miller 6/15/2015 5:42:27 PM
  • Ian Sherr 6/15/2015 5:42:35 PM
    Now we're seeing a preview for Microsoft's Fable: Legends, which was announced last year (or the year before?)
  • Josh Miller 6/15/2015 5:42:40 PM
  • Ian Sherr 6/15/2015 5:42:53 PM
    Fable Legends will be free, Microsoft says, and playable on Windows 10 and Xbox One
  • Scott Stein 6/15/2015 5:43:06 PM
    "if you love gaming"
  • Ian Sherr 6/15/2015 5:43:06 PM
    Everything you earn or buy on one version will play on the other, he says
  • dan.ackerman 6/15/2015 5:43:14 PM
    Fable plus "freemium" model? Oy.
  • Ian Sherr 6/15/2015 5:43:19 PM
    (The guy on stage is a man named Kudo)
  • Scott Stein 6/15/2015 5:43:24 PM
    Oooh....Valve VR.
  • Scott Stein 6/15/2015 5:43:27 PM
  • Ian Sherr 6/15/2015 5:43:32 PM
    Microsoft is announcing a new relationship with Valve VR
  • Scott Stein 6/15/2015 5:43:44 PM
    Xbox now working with Valve VR, Oculus, and has HoloLens...somewhere.
  • Josh Miller 6/15/2015 5:43:49 PM
  • Ian Sherr 6/15/2015 5:43:53 PM
    "we're working closely with Valve," probably the sentence that many gamers are really excited about
  • Ian Sherr 6/15/2015 5:44:11 PM
    He's repeating last week's announcement that the Oculus Rift will play Xbox One games.
  • Scott Stein 6/15/2015 5:44:16 PM
    Right now, Xbox One only plays games with Oculus by game-streaming to a PC, non-3D or VR.
  • dan.ackerman 6/15/2015 5:44:19 PM
    Now, Scott, maybe you can explain this to me -- the Xbox games on Oculus is basically just using the headset as a wearable 2D screen, right?
  • Scott Stein 6/15/2015 5:44:23 PM
    At last, HoloLens.
  • Scott Stein 6/15/2015 5:44:34 PM
    yes, Dan: so far
  • Ian Sherr 6/15/2015 5:44:39 PM
    Now he's talking about Hololens, Microsoft's own headset (are you keeping track? It's supporting three different ones now)
  • Scott Stein 6/15/2015 5:44:53 PM
    Much more excited about HoloLens and how this works with....Xbox?
  • Josh Miller 6/15/2015 5:44:59 PM
  • Ian Sherr 6/15/2015 5:45:11 PM
    Now, it's a discussion of Hololens. Lydia Winters, brand director for from Mojang.
  • dan.ackerman 6/15/2015 5:45:15 PM
    HoloLens vs Oculus, which will be the "primary" Xbox/Microsoft VR gaming hardware?
  • Josh Miller 6/15/2015 5:45:23 PM
  • Scott Stein 6/15/2015 5:45:25 PM
    Minecraft...this has been demoed on HoloLens already for those who have experienced it.
  • Ian Sherr 6/15/2015 5:45:30 PM
    You may have heard of Minecraft? Microsoft bought that and has built it into the Hololens
  • Ian Sherr 6/15/2015 5:45:40 PM
    It's probably one of the most popular games for kids.
  • dan.ackerman 6/15/2015 5:45:41 PM
    Odd that after such a huge investment in buying the game/company, this is the first mention of Minecraft here.
  • Josh Miller 6/15/2015 5:45:57 PM
  • Scott Stein 6/15/2015 5:46:07 PM
    I wonder if Minecraft for HoloLens could be like Tetris for Game Boy
  • dan.ackerman 6/15/2015 5:46:21 PM
    My seven-year-old neighbor plays Minecraft on her iPad nonstop...
  • Scott Stein 6/15/2015 5:46:45 PM
    We are seeing a live demo, with camera through HoloLens
  • dan.ackerman 6/15/2015 5:47:03 PM
    And, here's the problem with demoing VR tech. This just looks to us like some dude playing Minecraft.
