Surface 2 Review

Microsoft really, really needs the Surface 2 to succeed.

The Surface 2, then, aims to give Windows RT a second chance, but is Microsoft finally onto a winner or simply flogging a dead horse? Read on for the SlashGear review.

Though the event continues to be called "Editor's Day", this week we had an extended stay with NVIDIA in Montreal, learning about the company's newest in gaming development and hardware innovation.

Also making appearances were NVIDIA SHIELD, development initiatives through GameWorks, and some of the biggest names in game development today.
