Microsoft’s recent Big E3 2017 presentation, tech giant has file for a Trademark that can shake the entire gaming platform. Microsoft has applied for a trademark patent ‘Direct Reality’, which is described as a ‘computer software for holographic application’. Though ‘holographic application’ could apply just about anything related ‘augmented reality’, the application specifically covers gaming software. This could possibly mean some kind of gaming take on software powering Microsoft’s HoloLens augmented reality.

Xbox AR?

It is also possible Direct Reality refers to a technology on the upcoming 4K ready console. While we know project Scorpio will get VR support of some kind down the road, its possible Direct Reality could refer to an AR reality and even HoloLens support. That said, we look forward to learning more about what is in store for Xbox when Microsoft holds its E3 press conference this Sunday, June 11, at 2pm PST/5pm EST/12am GMT on Mixer, Microsoft’s reinvigorated video streaming service.
