    You can forget about anything on Windows 10 ARM as most gaming applications are made with x86-processors in mind. As for Android, I'd like to see more progress on that front, but we'll see...

    Why create a useless thread when there's already threads on here about android?

    Well... that doesn't mean that Bylaws isn't working on Android. Afaik, L4T Ubuntu is partly a result of him working on Android but don't quote me on that ^^

    Remote play isn't going to work. The only arm devices remote play works on are Sony branded phones and iPhones. It's not possible. If it were possible it would be on a raspberry pi or something similar.

    The linux L4T release has done a lot of the groundwork for Android, they're waiting for nvidia to release updated drivers for a new android release.

    The android remote play client can be made to run on non-sony devices, the hardest part is getting the controller working.

    That´s not quite right the remote play apk got hacked pretty fast you can use it on any Android phone not only the Sony ones.

    You're wrong. The apk got hacked years ago and Sony put an end to that pretty quick. The only way to make it work now is to have a rooted phone & install Sony specific stuff. So yet again I am right and remote play on an arm device running Windows 10 is NOT going to work.

    Not sure why you quoted me, I said nothing about Steam. I said remote play will not work and that's 100% correct.

    nope
    the Microsoft store will have many exclusives only available to Windows 10 x86 and arm variants btw. Android would be amazing to see more of. Imagine PUBG Mobile or Call of Duty mobile with custom key bindings?!?!?

    So you want to play a mobile game & cheat by using a controller? Such a noob thing to say/do.

    Windows 10 on ARM is able to execute Win32 applications.
    Games that have 32 bit x86 binaries work juat fine.

    nope
    If the game natively supports controller input (Modern Combat, PUBG Mobile, Fortnite, etc etc) its not a "noob thing to do". What would be noob is putting in keyboard and mouse support for these FPS games. Crazy advantage over everyone else. Arguably the controller and touch screen can be seen as similar input (in regard to how many fingers can be used, both can easily be used with 4 fingers.)

    Last I heard using a controller/keyboard/mouse on mobile games like pubg fornite etc. get you banned. Which that could have changed, I don't play those games.

    nope
    If it got you banned they wouldn't natively support them.
