would be nice if they incorporated the latency innovation they made a couple months back into this. zero lag when using the touch surface would change the industry forever

If that's the new MS "iPad killer" then it looks quite promising... but wasn't Surface the huge multitouch desk thing they had? Confusing naming++

Huh, it runs Windows 8. I wonder if you can remote desktop to your main computer and play Planetside 2 from that?

Lots of info here live:
http://live.theverge.com/microsoft-l...-announcement/

1.5 lbs, same thickness as ipad 3, the cover is a f'ing keyboard. Genius!

According to the live stream they have full Windows 8 on it looks like you could indeed play PS2 on it, though no idea whether the hardware requirements can cover it.

That would be awesome, sadly I kind of doubt it would work very well due to the fast pacedness of the game. I actually have messed around with stuff like that with my iPad using remote desktop apps.. Civilization works alright

Still, Windows 8 would mean the game could in theory run on that thing right there. I do kind of doubt that it has the necessary graphics muscle for that though...

Holy crap, if I'm reading that right one version works EXACTLY like a PC. You could play Planetside 2 from a tablet. If that works... holy crap.

EDIT: Yeah, probably not. I can dream.

What ever happened to this?



I would definitely like to see the app on that, but I think it will be up for the community to develop such things.

If they made an android tablet version of the PS2 app, I can't imagine them not making a Surface version since it also runs on Windows 8, which is what the PCs next year and the years after will be shipping with. You could use the app with your gaming PC, or this new MS Tablet.

If anyone actually buys it I could see them doing it. It will likely meet the same fate as most MS devices like this though.

Same fate as Xbox and Kinect?

There are no other MS devices like this.

Dunno I just can't see them getting traction - they really suck at stuff like this. I hope I'm wrong because if I am that means the space will advance a bit more.

But it's likely to be a niche device and won't get mainstream support like iOS, Android etc. It's going to have to be pretty amazing to get any of that pie.
