The success of Microsoft’s SmartGlass will depend on developer support. Microsoft plans to lead the way by including SmartGlass support in future XBOX 360 games that they create.
Microsoft’s vision for SmartGlass in their games is to provide a rich supporting role as opposed to having the player need to pay attention to two screens at the same time. So don’t worry about trying to battle enemies in Halo while looking at your phone at the same time.
In an interview with Joystiq, Corporate VP of Microsoft Studios, Phil Spencer, had this to say. “It just makes so much sense for a developer who wants to supply, maybe not time-critical information, like ‘that enemy is getting ready to shoot you,’ but information that augments what’s happening on screen.”
