Speculation: Could We See An Xbox Gaming Tablet In The Future?

Could we possibly see an Xbox 360 tablet in the future? Comments from Epic Games’ Vice President, Mark Rein, has led to speculation that we might just see such a device in the future. In case you missed it, Epic Games is the developer of the popular Unreal Engine, and has recently announced the imminent arrival of the Unreal Engine 3 for the iPad. He envisions a future of an Xbox 360 gaming tablet that we can bring around, complete with technology like Microsoft’s Kinect built right into it. Would you welcome such as device as an alternative to your Xbox 360 console? The statement reads:

“Imagine a future Xbox 360 that is actually a tablet you carry around. It will have more power than 360 does today, with technology like Kinect built right in. Imagine walking into a bar with some friends, propping it up on the table and playing games like Dance Central or Kinect Adventures anywhere you go. Then when you get home that same device will use technology like AirPlay or wireless HDMI to connect to your big screen, you’ll pick up a wireless controller, or use your phone as controller to play games like Gears of War.”
