    For several months, there have been feint whispers of a potential Xbox/Surface cross-branding gaming tablet cross-over product. The idea of a Surface tablet dedicated specifically to games and the Xbox brand in particular had a few of us in the tech industry intrigued. The imagination begins to run wild when considering the possibilities. Sadly, if you had high hopes for such a product, they are officially dashed now.
