Microsoft’s filed a patent for an “Xbox 360 Super Guide” of sorts, that would allow gamers to access information on games – sort of like an FAQ.

Filed by Andre Vrignaud, director of games platform strategy at Microsoft, it would be similar to the Nintendo Super Guide, in that players could pause their game and hop online for tips and strategies submitted by users and developers.

It would also implement screenshots, video clips, audio commentary, and the possibility of allowing developers to produce official guides.

No word on when or if this is coming – or if it will be free, or for only Gold members.

We’ll ask Microsoft.
