I think this is a smart part of their product evolution actually. If we think long term, say 4-5 years from now, as tablets get increasingly powerful, I can see the Xbox Surface brand being a very influential part of gaming. This says a lot about Microsoft's approach vs Sony and Nintendo - the former is trying to prepare itself for the shape of where things are headed (think Windows 8 currently treating XBL data as first class citizens rather than unimportant side projects), and Sony/Nintendo are still trying to figure out how to lock people into closed platforms.

Anyway its just lots of potential.

If this Tablet is going to be the equivalent to PS Vita and Nintendo 3DS, I might consider buying and if my Gamertag and service transfers over then it's a definite for me.

I'd rather have the one with the full Windows 8 OS, if I were to get one at all.

Would be kinda cool if ms offered a service for a monthly fee where you could download an unlimited number of games for the surface, both indie and published titles

It just looks like a windows 8 tablet, but I assume they will add a better graphics card to actually play XBox-like games.

Personally, I don't see this selling well. Unless it's cheap (Highly doubt something like this would be) It's not going to do well. There's a reason why the majority of gamers aren't playing their games on PC's, it's expensive.

if youll have the ability to sync a 360 controller to it and play XBLA games you purchased, i would be interested. if you can only play lame proprietary XBL games like the Windows Phone, no thanks.

Like a Microsoft flavored Nintendo GamePad? I'm not so big on tablets, but I'm intrigued by their potential as a console controller.
