Don Mattrick and Bing Gordon

When Microsoft first announced its Surface tablet, many wondered how it might work with games for the Xbox 360 (or any future Xbox console). Microsoft’s president for interactive entertainment business had a morsel of insight about this today.

Speaking during a panel at VentureBeat’s GameBeat 2012 conference, Microsoft exec Don Mattrick mentioned that the upcoming first-person shooter Halo 4 will work with Surface. VentureBeat reporter John Koetsier confirmed this with Mattrick after the panel.

We have no details on how Halo will work with Surface, and Mattrick didn’t offer anything further. But at E3, Microsoft did show how SmartGlass would work with its new tablet.
