Xbox 720 To Be Tablet Based?


GameSpot have suggested that the next Xbox (rumoured to be revealed at E3) will heavily feature a tablet component.

Suggestions are that Microsoft are ready to copy the upcoming Wii-U’s design. The report states the following:

“There are strong signs suggesting that, like with Nintendo’s Wii U, a tablet component figures heavily into the new design. That saucy Windows 8 Metro interface (now also seen on the Xbox Dashboard) just begs to be touched.

“Speculation as to the form it will take has been rife for the past few months, with some even suggesting that the core of the new platform will be akin to a tablet PC that wirelessly connects to a base station, which in turn plugs into your TV.

“If this is the case, a premium Xbox Next setup could feasibly include a base station, a tablet, a conventional controller of some kind, and the recently discussed high-def evolution of the Kinect.”

Very interesting, but would you be happy with the next Xbox having a tablet component? Do you want them to stick to what they have now? What else would you like to see added into the next generation of consoles? Let us know below.
