Microsoft just released the details on their new touched based computing program and while it's not game related (yet), I thought it was pretty kick ass. Check out this vid from popular mechanics on it and if you want more information check out this video
At $10K per unit we won't see any of these in homes for quite some time but the potential for gaming is pretty killer. While I don't see this being a boon to FPS games I think it could be pretty kick ass for RTS, MMO's, and most strategy games (playing Gal Civ II
with touch controls could be amazing). Like the Wii remote I think this has the potential to be revolutionary in how we approach games. Of course that would requirer Microsoft to execute on it which is asking a lot.
