    I thought I read here a while back that the Surface can control an Xbox. If it's true how is it done?

    Some games are also SmartGlass enabled, which is typically more as a second screen serving up extra information (maps, etc.).

    New games are slowly adding SmartGlass functionality as developers get the hang of what they can do with it. Forza Horizon displays a map that you can get information on the various races, set waypoints, etc. Pretty cool really. Works well on the Surface.
