Xbox Console of 2042 Will Use Quantum Technology Predicts Microsoft
(Metro.co.uk) As part of a promotion for Battlefield 2042, Microsoft has imagined future games that are indistinguishable from reality, use neural interfaces and are powered by quantum technology. Almost certainly consoles won’t exist and everything will be streamed.
This brief article features a video from Microsoft depicting how Microsoft sees video games in 20 years. The word ‘console’ is never mentioned but the video also predicts 1 quintillion floating point operations per second (FLOPS) and a ‘living, thinking AI’ behind everything.
There’s even mention of a holographic interface and using ‘smart optical appliances’ and ‘neural interfaces’ to the control the game, i.e. a Star Trek holodeck plugged into your brain.
