Microsoft sprung a surprise conference last night revealing it’s own tablet known as Surface. It will run on Windows 8 and bring a competitive gaming experience to tablets.

Surface allows you to connect an Xbox360 controller to add to the gaming experience on the go. It is the first official non-Xbox 360 device to be compatible with its controllers.
