This allows for porting between Windows RT, Xbox 360 and PC devices

NVIDIA and Epic Games were able to show off Unreal Engine 3 via tech demo "Epic Citadel" on a Windows RT tablet powered by Tegra 3 today. 
At the ASUS Vivo Tab RT press conference at IFA 2012 in Berlin, the tablet displayed the first-ever Unreal Engine 3 app on the Windows RT platform
The Unreal Engine 3 is the full PC version rather than an altered mobile app, which allows for the porting of PC and Xbox 360 games to Windows RT. Games on Windows RT can also be ported back to those other platforms. 

"The Unreal Engine 3-powered 'Epic Citadel' demonstration for Windows RT tablets implements the full DirectX 9 pipeline, with shaders and materials, all running beautifully on Tegra 3," said Mark Rein, vice president of Epic Games. "By porting the full engine as opposed to a modified mobile version, NVIDIA and Epic have made it easy for UE3 developers around the world to bring their best content to Windows RT, Windows 8 and NVIDIA's Tegra 3 processor. Windows RT code is available to licensees from Epic now and we're excited to see the great games they develop with it."

This is a huge boost for Windows, since it will likely further connect Microsoft devices. Windows 8 will be released October 26

I've a problem with your statement on two levels.

Sad or not technology changes. Roll with it.

"Roll with it" implies that we should simply take whatever the game makers want us to have and like it. Rubbish! WE, the users, are the ones who decide what is and is not popular. I'm one of those people that will be skipping the Apple and MS tablet offerings in favor of Android tablets. But not for gaming. I have game systems for that.

Years back I was all about the biggest TV.

And that loss of interest has little to do with trends and more your adaptation to your own needs instead of "keeping up with the Jones's".

I lay next to my gf with my ipad and watch a movie with headphones on while she watches a movie on tv.

Seriously? What the heck is the point of even having a GF if you are not going to spend your "together" time doing something, well, together? You are a perfect example of technology being a distraction and burden to life rather then a help. Put the damned tablet down and watch something together. Take turns picking what to watch. Take out the damn ears phones and connect with her on some level other than just being in the same room.
