Hey, I have an idea. What about, like, tablet control for a next generation console?

Where Nintendo leads, Microsoft and Sony often follow. That might be the case yet again, as both of the brosky console makers are supposedly working on tablets in some capacity.

According to recent rumour, Microsoft is supposedly working on a tablet for the 720 that includes an HD screen and regular 360-style controls. This would supposedly be sleeker in design than the tablet demonstrated for Wii U.

On the Sony side, someone has dug up a patent from the company from 2010 that shows users interacting with a tablet device in conjunction with a TV and game system.

Maybe the 720 and PS4 will have tablet controllers too!
