Wobble wobble. Hissssss.
Here is the first of those details: the company is pulling together the disparate strands of its PC and console divisions, like a novice magician hastily gathering up a premature eruption of sleeve-doves.
Before we get lost in the obscurity of our own similes, here's what that sort of means: you will soon be able to stream Xbox One games to any system running Windows 10, via wifi. As if that wasn't electrifying enough, the firm is also launching universal Windows apps to run across computers, phones, tablets and its Xbox One console. Now pay rapt attention to this: an integral element of Windows 10 will be its Siri-esque, Halo-inspired, personal digital assistant Cortana.
And then this: the Xbox One and Windows 10 versions of Fable Legends - the upcoming co-operative role-playing game - will allow players from both systems to mingle with one another, like they're in some weird, pan-species, pick-up club, we'd imagine.
And finally this: The Microsoft announcement also included details of something called Windows Holographic. Though still in early development, Holographic uses a Google Glass-style 'Hololens' headset to augment a user's surroundings - projecting game elements onto walls, or allowing them to interact with 3D graphs or models, or virtual puppies.
So, not a hologram at all then - they might as well have called it Windows Guaranteed Time Travelling Wormhole Device - but still a pretty heady "jam".
Oh look! Here's a video showing you what we're talking about...
