XBP? XBA? XB180?
This shouldn't surprise anyone. Microsoft will not be denied in any media category.
I'll wait and see what games they give it. I enjoy my PSP but it has a very limited selection of games compared to the PS2. I only own three X-Box games, Halo 2, Ninja Gaiden and Stubbs. So I shudder at the thought of buying an X-Box handheld because I'll most likely get no games for it.
I'm imagining something the size of a dvd box except three times as thick with a screen the size of the PSP's.
What like the Sega Gamegear?
where's my portable 3DO? eh???!
I'm not going to by one of the new portables until I see something that assures me I will spend time playing it other than the time that I am sitting on the john. Seeing as the PSP is basically a GBA with much better graphics, and this MS handheld will probably be the exact same way, I think the DS is the only handheld that I have any interest in getting.
Is this a new one? I thought I read about another handheld Microsoft was workig on that's really just a portable PC. I think I'm confused. Wait, I know I'm confused.
Ugh, like we really need more portables out there. I'm sticking with my PSP. I think if I started begging for another handheld my wife would kill me. That and I was never that fond of the Xbox games. *shrugs* I'm an odd duck.
I have *quite* high hopes for this one, games line up might be solid. Hopefully, MS will put a DECENT browser in it, and make it possible to use a mobile phone with it as a modem - the browser in the PSP is pretty clumsy.
Ultimately tho, i think Nintendo will keep winning the handheld wars becasue of one thing.
There seems little chance of MS matching them in that regard.
You answered your own question - this is annother one.
it will probably just be a hdd with a screen that can play games
If it has a hard drive I may think about getting one
It'll be the first foot-long six-inch-thick twenty-pound "hand held" game system. But at least it'll be bulletproof.
Aren't you forgetting the Atari Lynx?!
my girlfriend still plays hers! (lynx)
At the risk of, er, dragging this thing back on-topic--I never had an Atari Lynx--I think I am vastly uninterested in any Xbox handheld. I have a 360 and so far, the only thing that still justifies its existence is Elder Scrolls 4. Which you can also buy for PC. I'm not interested in wasting $60 on the likes of Full Auto now, and I don't think that will be any different for a handheld.
Of course, that could change. I hated the PSP when it first came out, but Capcom seems to be pumping out some cool stuff for it now, and downloading PS1 games for a portable seems like a cool idea (if it actually works). But I already own (and love) the DS, and I'm still planning on getting a PSP. A third handheld seems kind of redundant.
OMG!!1!1one11! Go buy G.R.A.W. right now. That'll justify your 360 up real nice.
I dont think MS would have a shot in hell at it. If the Playstation brand can't dethrone Nintendo's handhelds, the Xbox brand has no chance at all.. Unless Microsoft feels like loosing 4 more billion dollars or something.
