While consumers who purchase tablets don’t normally do it for the specific purpose of gaming, it looks like those who do might want to check out the Microsoft Surface when it is released. According to reports online, the upcoming FPS game Halo 4 will be playable on the Microsoft Surface. During Venture Beat’s GameBeat 2012 conference, Don Mattrick, President of Interactive Entertainment Business for Microsoft made the claim though he didn’t elaborate on what he meant.
Could he be talking about the Xbox SmartGlass app that was shown off at this year’s E3? Or did he mean that users could play the full game on the tablet itself. If that’s the case, it looks like the Surface could be a potential hit in the gaming sector (assuming other developers follow suit with their games as well). Stay tuned for more details.
