This has got me thinking, man if that was actually a thing since Forzavista would be so much more Immersive if we can see it with the hololens.

Do you guys agree ?

I have yet to see anything saying they plan to use them with the Xbox One.

There is no plans to use hololens for gaming at this time, so no.

Do I agree? No.

To me things like this start off being gimmicky and most end up dying.

If it was to come into gaming and proved to be a big improvement then so be it. Personally I doubt that would happen.
I blame the ants.

Forzavista isn't anything special. I'd rather that content be filled up with more cars/tracks.

Remember when Microsoft came out with Smartglass how it would be super amazing?

Remember how Turn10 studios, a Microsoft company, created the new Forza Motorsport and Forza Horizon titles and had amazing Smartglass implementation?

Oh, that's right. Smartglass was supposed to be this awesome second screen interface/experience for Xbox 360 and then Xbox One and it has been nothing but a total flop. In fact, even Microsoft owned Studios have opted to create their own custom add-op apps such as Forza Hub or the Assassin's Creed Companion App rather than using smartglass.

It was a great idea that never took off and ended up being really gimmicky.

I hope not. I can't say I'm a fan of that thing, as with all other VR stuff, just, no.

But as others said, doubtful they'll use it for gaming uses. And IF they do, not likely anytime this year.

From what I've seen, the closest thing to gaming that I might see on Hololens is Minecraft. :(

i think it would be too distracting. i cant even watch telemetry when i need it without blowing the corner. telemetry in replays would far outweigh ar visuals for me and you dont need anything new for that.
