Euh no. Just like Nvidia Shield, you will be able to STREAM games from your console to your PC using the power of Windows 10 and the new Smartglass App and whatnot.

Microsoft never said / confirmed that games from the Xbox will
a) natively play on a PC
b) streamed games will have enhanced/improved graphics or resolutions



"Euh," I never said the games would play natively. I simply mentioned Microsoft's reference to playing Xbox One games on a PC:

"Windows 10 extends the Xbox experience with game streaming. Play your Xbox One games on a desktop, laptop, or tablet in your home on your local Wi-Fi," with the caveat that you can only stream to one device.

From there, I only suspect you could upscale the video (or whatever needs to be done) to play across multiple monitors and (hopefully) be able to adjust in-game FOV to give a larger viewable area on either side of the center screen. I'm not a tech guru and I didn't imply that anything was definitive ... only that it "could be possible."

As has been stated by T10 reps at E3 the multi-screen build of Forza 6 we have at the event is a custom build, built especially for the event. I would suggest though that if you're really keen to see this feature return then it would be best to make your voice known here, as it is essentially a platform feature that needs to be added.

With that re-confirmation, Ian, do you have any information that you can share about an in-game FOV setting?

Multi-screen correspondence is the necessary function to raise race presence.
It's also possible to contribute to the sales of the console and the software.

Multi screen function is necessary function to experience best driving simulation.
This is why Forza 5 is not so much fun to me.
Good counter-steering needs exact FOV.

Please enable it with product version.

Because it's a custom build of the game that doesn't run on retail kits.

Why should we have to vote for this? This was an awesome (although expensive) option that set Forza apart from its console competition. Having to vote on a killer feature like this, is strange.

OK let me rephrase:

If you already have it functioning in the game, why not include it into retail release? You are already aware its a heavily sought after feature.
May we be allowed an answer as to why this would not be a possibilty in the retail versions if it is indeed "3 xbox ones" that arent "dev kits/pc"

They are gauging interest.

With 40% of PS4 owners not being PS3 owners, I think they are trying to guage whether there is enough to warrant the dev time of said feature into release.
Which is what I find curious, if it is already working, why not? Why vote? why gauge anything?

It doesn't work on standard retail kits, hence the need for us to build a special build that works only on dev kits. If people are keen to see the feature reintroduced to retail Xbox One's, then they should let their voices be heard via the link I posted earlier. The decision isn't ours to make.

Ian, firstly, let me say, I wholly appreciate this conversation right now. Thank you.

Do you mean:

A) the code will not run on standard retail kits at all, or
B) the retail units do not support system link.

Bit of column A and a bit of column B I believe, I'm no engineer though so don't hold me to that. As people will have witnessed with the introduction of backwards compatibility along with various other feature introductions, the team at Xbox are keen to listen and act on community feedback where possible, so if you want this feature to return then please express your opinion via the Xbox feedback website.

I voted here, but If T10 doesn't have the pull to get this function in the Xbox One I just don't see how a little petition that few will ever know about will do anything to sway MS into adding this feature.

T10 needs to push MS for this also.

I sure will miss the thrill I got every time I drove in one of FM's beautifully rendered cockpits in triple screen though. While I can always drive GT6 and many PC games that have at least basic triple screen support still, they just are not Forza.

I know this doesn't matter to T10 or MS, but I have no reason to buy an Xbox One or FM6 unless this feature is added and will instead be saving that money I would have spent on FM6 for three PS4's and GT7's in hopes that it will still have multiscreen as I know Kaz is very passionate about having this feature in his games.

In that case Ian, please confirm:



This claims to be "in game footage"

But as well all know from FM5, there is absolutely no way the xbox one can pull off the level of AA or downsampling applied in this "in game trailer".
nor does it apply full Ansiotropic filtering as displayed in this trailer in bumper view.

Voted here.

I didn't see something non-specific to Forza 5, but not wanting to waste the 43 votes ahead of me, I added my support to it.

It still doesn't make sense, that this needs to be voted on at all.

I wonder how the multi-screen will be handled for the legacy games and BC, if at all. Would be great if the One was the definitive forza machine. Now to get other 1st party devs\AAA games to jump in on this too. Such a shame so few games did this last gen. Where do I vote for all of that?

emulation generally requires a x10 cpu power increase to work smoothly, and emulating PPC on X86 isnt the easiest thing to do at all. Sony's Cell (PS3) was also a PPC derived. Games that used certain features of those chips more than likely will not end up being emulated.

The apu isnt x10 the cpu the 360 PPC chip was.

Pro Tip: It will suck, and its all a ploy to get users off the 360, to which they will then just "drop" BC again.

Foxy, I guess we have to vote on that too. It's as if no one at Xbox thought multi-screen capability would be a good feature to have, or something?

Oh and while we are voting on that, we might as well vote up Xbox One wheel compatibility for 360 racing games featured in Backwards Compatibility. I'm sure that hasn't been thought of.


Please excuse my cynical attitude, but some things can be done without gauging interest, or getting the green light from the community.
