You mean like Sony releasing the Vita with next to no Japanese aimed games.

Can't be related to new console. Probably just announcement of some integration. Maybe Kinect-related.

If they are really gonna announce new console, I can imagine Sony will follow suit in 3 weeks or 3 months, tops.

It'll be a tablet that serves the same purpose as the Wii U remote.

Why would Battlefield 3 be $400? Is it a Neo Geo game?

I've read on a whole lot of sites now that it's gonna be a tablet they're making with Barnes and Noble because of the large investment microsoft made with them and their partnership as of April.

Well if you also have read or heard any of this info... it's not true. lol

Have you checked the price of Neo Geo games lately? They're anywhere from $60 to $1000.

Battlefield 3 on Neo Geo. Better graphics than PS3, 360 and PC combined!

It's the Microsoft Surface! It's a tablet. lol

They're making sound more like a portable Window's PC. Made of Liquid Metal.

lol the tablet stopped working during their presentation and they had to get another one.

It has its own stand. They're also showing the "smart cover" for it that folds out into a touch keyboard.






aaaannnd Specs!

yup that's it, it's a computer / tablet. Which a tablet that worked just like a PC is what i've always wanted so it makes me happy (unless there's other tablets that work just like PCs that i've been missing out on this whole time! lol)

LOL it's just a damn light laptop. In fact my laptop has way better specs. I dont understand why this is huge news, I guess because M$ is making them. Anyway I'll leave this thread alone for those that do for some strange reason.

p.s. I wonder how long until Linux is on that thing.
