Surface Pro 5 Update: What You Need to Know about The Future of Gaming in A Hybrid Device [RUMOR]By Anita Valencia, UniversityHerald Reporter
Surface Pro 5's release is still unknown, and after the October event, there's even unclear information sent out by Microsoft regarding the future of its Surface hybrid tablet.
It has also garnered attentions from the tech and industry analysts as they come up with predictions and clues of the upcoming device for gaming.
Previously, Michael Pachter from Wedbush, said that the odds are high for Microsoft to migrate from console to PC. As a matter of fact, the company is heading there.
Xbox games, for instance, are already available on both devices. That being said, Microsoft could be preparing the next Surface Pro device for gaming where it enables users to download and play the games, GamingBolt reported.
This may not be surprising since Microsoft would want to expand its potential market. Furthermore, the analyst considers Microsoft's move would be at the same direction as where Apple is going with the iTunes Store.
