(CNN) — Perhaps the biggest splash in the early going of this year’s Electronic Entertainment Expo in Los Angeles was made by Microsoft with its unveiling of Xbox SmartGlass.

And while there’s a video-gaming aspect to it, the feature promises a lot more (which, to be honest, is the sort of thing that plays bigger in the rest of the world than it does at E3, where the crowd is heavily made up of hard-core gamers who were probably more excited about the preview of "Halo 4").

Less than a day after SmartGlass was introduced, details are still emerging about how it will work.

But what’s clear is that the application, which will work hand in hand with the upcoming Windows 8 operating system, is Microsoft’s play to make the Xbox 360 an indispensable tool for all kinds of entertainment.
