Or Include Windows 8 Tablet Connectivity
Gamespot have captured today's headlines by running a sensational rumour that the next-generation Xbox, tipped for a CES teaser tomorrow morning, will feature a tablet as a core component. No, really. Gamespot theorise that the console itself could even be a tablet PC, which can be attached to a docking station connected to your TV. Since the rumour is essentially an amalgam of separate theories and presented in a speculative 2012 article, it's worth viewing this one with a healthy degree of cynicism for the time being.
As far as we're concerned, it's more likely that the next Xbox will be compatible with tablets running Windows 8, much in the same way as Windows 7 phones can be synced with the Xbox 360. Considering the Metro UI design features finger-friendly icons and sliding screens, it'd be a no-brainer. Stranger things have happened, though, and we'll keep an eye on CES for the latest announcements.
