    Many think that this years E3 sucked and Microsoft really didn’t show much, or give us anything to be excited about, but they are having a show in less than three hours of this post and the rumours circulating this event is something called “Xbox Surface”, here is a few images of spec sheets, followed by a link to watch the event :)

      unfortunalely, due to the name (surface) it reminds me of microsoft surface that has yet to be available to regular customers.
      i hope this device isnt a business only product and hope that it will integrate with surface well if/when it ever comes out for mass release

      And which of those spec sheets is correct because both of them are different, one lists 5GB RAM and a lower spec GPU on it, judging by the specs alone its not going to be a cheap product so if this is the microsoft attempt to get in to the handheld market this isn't going to work, this sounds more like a business device than anything actually related to consumer gaming.

      one is the base unit and the other is the controller

      Yes but that doesn't answer my question, they basically look like 2 different spec sheets for the same device as i find it unlikely that the controller would have or need 4GB of RAM and a high end GPU :P

      Ergo 2 sheets for the same device listing different specs, one of them could be older which is is more likely

      It sounds like a more Powerful clone of WiiU.

      Rumours have it that the Kinnect 2 needs 4GB ram, so the 5GB ram sounds about right.

      Both spec sheets are basically the same, apart from one saying 4GB ram and the other saying 5GB ram.

      Yeah it does sound like that. I guess will just have to wait 2 and half more hours:/ Wondering wait it will be maybe a package deal with a xbox 720 and a tablet which will connect on that smart class thing or whatever. I don't know wtf I just said like usual I'm high as ****.

      And the differences in the GPU

      Hence why i think one is actually an older spec sheet, the bottom looks like a newer GPU core is being used and its better presented so i would be more inclined to go with the second image

      This "Live Stream" is crap. It's actually a "Live Speculating About The Microsoft Event" Show...
      It's time for me to go to bed since there's not going to be anything interesting on the Live Stream.
      Or am I wrong?

      /EDIT: Even though C|NET Suckz, that tablet seems SAWEET!

      Hopefully we're done with these silly next-gen rumors for now :P I don't recall there ever being a genuine spec leak before E3 for any console

      Funny thing my GF asked me a few days ago to pick a Tablet for her she could use at the University.
      Now I think this could be a good choice.

      But does anybody know anything about a release Date yet?

      I like it, it's a Tablet but it also has a keyboard like the Asus eee pad transformer. I hope it's priced reasonably.

      Was hoping that too. Maybe when you turn on your "Surface" the keys will appear on the screen?! o.O

      /EDIT: Oh god, listening to those idiots from C|NET makes me wanna rip out my ears instantly. They tell so much stupid stuff (like things like "Ahw, yeah, Apple has so many good products, etc, etc..."
      But I can't help it: I want to hear more Info abt this! o.O

      the only down side is the AMD Gpu
      if they were to use Nvidia like the first Xbox non of the heat problems (RROD) would have been occurring in the 360
      now with the 720 , surface or what ever they will call it.

      I suprised they didnt have to stop the presentation half way though to reflow the GPU.

      TL:DR

      Sounds interesting.

      Probably a dumb question but: does this mean it might play xbox/360 games?

      im surprised they didnt talk about battery life or even the price range yet but i bet its like 500 to 700 bucks worth.

      The spec sheets say the clock speed is at 3ghz, I can't imagine the battery lasts longer than a few minutes .
