Totally useless, better work to put all their games available all the time anywhere. Whether on xbox, pc or xcloud.

Shrinking the OG XBOX would get you a console the size of a PS2, so that might be the problem.



Definitely. The Xbox would hugely benefit from a mini console making its games more widely available. The system has a load of unappreciated gems that would be great to see highlighted on a mini console.

That said, there are some potential drawbacks to such a mini console. For one, it’ll require more powerful hardware to emulate well than other mini consoles, and it’s controller is more complex. Combined with its DVD-sized games, and this thing WILL probably need to be more expensive than other mini consoles. But I do hope we eventually get 6th gen mini consoles, especially as they all begin to turn 20 years old.



They would be cautious after what happened with Sony.



Pocky Lover Boy! 

The polygon-based games without pre-rendered or 2d backgrounds are profiting immensely from higher resolutions. So why should I want to play original Xbox games in 480p when I can play them in 4K on an Xbox One X or Xbox Scarlett?

I'd instabuy a Windows 3.x mini, or, even better a Win98SE Mini. Got a couple 16 bit games that don't work with a modern 64 bit OS, plus tons of Dos and other Windows games and programs of that era.

DOSbox?



Do they honestly and absolutely need one?.

All these mini boxes are, are a tiny box with a tiny selection of games, a short power and gamepad cord, while costing something silly for it's age.



                                       

XB doesn't have the heritage yet. Plus, look at how bad the PS mini did. Maybe in another decade XB will be ready.

They need an XBOX Slim first, then an xbox MINI.



The Canadian National Anthem According To Justin Trudeau

 

Oh planet Earth! The home of native lands, 
True social law, in all of us demand.
With cattle farts, we view sea rise,
Our North sinking slowly.
From far and snide, oh planet Earth, 
Our healthcare is yours free!
Science save our land, harnessing the breeze,
Oh planet Earth, smoke weed and ferment yeast.
Oh planet Earth, ell gee bee queue and tee.
