Xbox 8 Rumoured To Have Touchscreen Matte Black Controller

Xbox 360

News just in from the latest issue of Xbox World Magazine claims that the Xbox 8 / Xbox 720 will include a HD touch screen on the controller which will be surrounded with Xbox 360 style button configurations. Our imaginations can’t help but conjure up improved Dreamcast controllers.

Xbox World Magazine’s sources report that the controller “will be 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.”

“That touchcreen will be second only to Kinect in how you operate your console. It 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…”

Note the interesting reference to a portable display?

Whilst these are just rumours, keep in mind that Xbox World Magazine is brought to you from the same group that run the Official Xbox Magazine and just maybe, they’ve seen something hands on that we haven’t…
