When Microsoft first announced its Surface tablet, many wondered how it might work with games for the Xbox 360 (or any future Xbox console). Microsoft’s president for interactive entertainment business a morsel of insight about this today.
I find this hard to believe...Halo 4 on Surface? It won't be the same, but hell, I'd like to see it.
windows 8 = xbox live. http://www.youtube.com/watc...
Note: "work with" not on, It'll probably be a App, something similar to viewing you Battlelog from an iPad. I'd sure be impressed if they actually got gameplay features on the Surface - like HUD, Map, or in-game content otherwise on-screen.
@BattleTorn = 100% correct....it will work "with". Did everyone just suddenly forget about the Smart Glass innovation? Ofcourse the surface tablets will work with Halo 4.
or halo waypoints "atlas" that worked in real time with halo reach
Work with? So revolutionary...pay a thousand bucks to play with your profile?
The ignorance is strong in this one.
Yeah and your the smart one...
Gridloc is just doing damage control. When Sony decides to copy it Gridloc will be all like "best thing ever" and then claim they been working on it since 1972.
Simply put, the surface tablet would work in let's say multiplayer where you have the perk where you see through walls, hold the tablet up to the screen( via wiiu) and boom instant waste of time x-ray. They could use it for a whole view of a map in multiplayer. But te only time you would look at it if you died and waiting to respond or just plain camping.
My windows 8 tablet cost me same price as an ipad. Went with the Kingston 64 gb ssd mini. AMD Zeo Dual Core 4 GB DDR3 ATI Radeon HD6330 64gb SSD Kingston N Wifi 4 point Simultaneous touch Windows 8 x64 Dual Webcams
These companies are smart using a big name to push something into your home... and then leave the support for that thing... no where to be found. So you're left with a deadbeat device!
lol..they don't need Halo 4 to sell surface. Its not targeted at gamers anyway. The thing will sell well but having Halo 4 work with it is just an added bonus.
Look at HP's web OS. Same thing will happen with windows 8 tablets. Too late and the sheep don't agree...
We already saw how it will "work with" MS Surface at E3. Playing it on Surface or using surface as a controller is highly doubtful. Very highly.....
I told you guys tablets are the future consoles. So it begins.....
Guys, ANY tablet will work. Smartglass... remember?
If that were the case why wouldn't Don clear that up? From what I read he seemed rather caged about it. We've already seen the tech demos, why tease if that was all?
Because he doesn't want to reveal what Halo 4's smart glass tech tie in will be. That announcement will come later... so yes, surface will work with Halo 4. How will it work with Halo 4? I can't say yet... its just PR 101.
Pretty sure this will just be the previously announced SmartGlass technology: http://www.youtube.com/watc...
