Next Xbox ‘could be a handheld’

Next-gen successors to Microsoft and Sony’s powerhouse consoles would benefit from no longer being tethered to the living room TV, the vice president of Epic Games has said.

Imagine a future Xbox 360 that is actually a tablet you carry around,” said Mark Rein in a new interview with Develop.

It will have more power than 360 does today, with technology like Kinect built right in.

Imagine walking into a bar with some friends, propping it up on the table and playing games like Dance Central or Kinect Adventures anywhere you go. Then when you get home that same device will use technology like AirPlay or wireless HDMI to connect to your big screen, you’ll pick up a wireless controller, or use your phone as controller to play games like Gears of War.”
