But why? A mouse and keyboard defeats the whole thing (except for the full Win8 tablet, which should have a docking station.)
Tablet users aren't really looking for AAA games. The last thing they really want is Skyrim. They're more looking for quick games that are easy to learn, hard to master, good in short bursts and don't always require 100% of your concentration.
May that shift? Probably will shift. But, for the time being, Angry Birds, Tower Defenses, Where's My Water, and Words With Friends will dominate.
There are also bluetooth gamepads if you want, but besides that, ya. Not a lot of people will WANT to play Skyrim on a tab. I would like to see tablets be more of a 3rd screen, in that it could have components of the AAA game, but not all of it, that would complement the game.
Lets take Skyrim as an example. The tablet can be a map, a live inventory, character status, and many other things while your playing on the PC. On the go, maybe you have some more simple aspects of Skyrim that would still progress your game. These things would be small missions that are quick to play and give you some type of reward to progress your character.
On something like an MMO, it could be the auction house, raid organizer, city planner, map, or again you can do simple questing while your mobile.
I dont see tablet's substituting PC gaming, but complementing and expanding it.
