One of the big cool features coming to the Xbox 360 this fall is support for Microsoft’s new “SmartGlass” apps that will be coming to all sorts of mobile devices including Windows Phones, Windows 8 Tablets, and even Android and iOS devices.  Right now most of those devices have simple “Xbox Companion” apps, but if you’ve got a copy of the RTM final version of Windows 8, you can download a preview of the Xbox SmartGlass app that you can test out.  In our video below, we’ll show you how it works.  We’re bound by a non-disclosure agreement from showing you the Xbox 360 part of the equation for the time being, but you can still see how a Windows 8 tablet will be able to connect to, control, and enhance your Xbox-based living room experience.

Take a look at the video below and let us know what you think about Xbox SmartGlass for Windows 8.
