Unwiredview recently dug up a Microsoft patent that could have some serious implications for their gaming business. With plans that put Nintendo’s best efforts at multicomponent gaming to shame, Microsoft could be getting ready to change how you experience games.
Microsoft’s patent covers a vast array of multicomponent connectivity. The pataent ranges from connecting a handheld gaming device to your console, and then using the processing power of the handheld device to supplement the power of the console to using your docked Zune to integrate your surround sound into your console. Another example includes storing save games from a handheld device on your console’s memory.
While Microsoft dreams big, the practicality of the system envisioned in the filed patent is doubtful for the time being. While being able to connect your thousands of dollars worth of electronics together seamlessly is nice in theory, it doesn’t do much for the consumers who can’t afford to buy every product Microsoft releases.
