Microsoft is very serious about the gaming business, and in addition to Project xCloud streaming service, it looks like the software giant has some other plans in mind to expand the Xbox brand.

Praising the recent success of the Nintendo Switch, the research documents show that Microsoft is exploring a controller which would technically split in half an attach to both sides of a phone or tablet.

This would basically convert the device into a gaming console with a hardware-based input method, thus eliminating the need for touch controls when playing games.
