More rumors about the next Xbox:
Vice president of Epic Games, Mark Rein, in an announcement of Unreal Engine 3 on the iPad, expressed his thoughts on the future of gaming consoles. He says the future of Xbox gaming console could be a gaming tablet with the Kinect built in.
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.
If you have to prop it up to make it work, then some may argue about the logic in that. This may be too creative of an idea, so much so that I can’t understand how would it work.
We can’t expect to see this out anytime soon, since Microsoft is sticking to the Xbox 360 for now and the Xbox 720 isn’t even officialy on the tables yet.
