Xbox shows off 'Minecraft' built specifically for HoloLens

At Microsoft Xbox’s E3 2015 presser we got a closer look at the special build of Minecraft for HoloLens augmented reality headset. Microsoft showcased that you can play traditionally with a controller or explore and interact using your voice and gesture controls. This showed off being able to peek and move around in real space as well as being able to zoom in and out with a simple commands. With a special live feed we were able to view what the person demoing the came is experiencing. Nothing was said as to if the Xbox One could power this experience alone or would need the assistance of a PC like with Valves VR and Oculus Rift. Microsoft promises more information at the MineCon event that starts July 4th. With an amazing live demo like this we have to ask, are we in the future of gaming? I certainly think so, but what about you? Let me know in the comments below!
