Rumor: ‘Xbox 720’ To Have HD Touchscreen Controller. SO MUCH GIMMICK.

When I think of a new Xbox, my groin swells and I get lightheaded. Xbot!, reporting for duty. Newest rumor? Microsoft is seeing Nintendo a Kinect, and raising them a new touchscreen controller.


According to a report from Xbox World magazine, the controller will be “an HD screen surrounded by the traditional 360 buttons and sticks.” The magazine goes on to state that the controller “could be a remote control when you’re watching TV, a browser when you’re on the internet, extra buttons and information when you’re playing a game or a portable display when you want to take your game with you.”

This is, of course, similar to the functionality of the tablet controller Nintendo  will use in the Wii U.

The report goes on to say that the console will heavily integrate Kinect. It predicts the new console as “a matte-black media hub with a mission to bring games to life in your living room with augmented reality, directional sound, and a four-player, finger-tracking Kinect.”

Love the idea of using it to manipulate my Netflix like a motherfucker. Though man, so much interactivity! Overwhelming.
