A handheld Xbox?

Forums - Gaming Discussion - A handheld Xbox?

I have heard rumors of Microsoft going into the handheld market. Is this a good idea? Can MS even make an impact if they do it right or should they just stick to consoles and let the PSP and DS duke it out? The PSP isn't doing so bad right now in the US, but in Japan they are getting slapped almost 3 to 1 I think, not sure about Europe, but in the USA they are at least doing better but still being outsold by about 2.8 million units. But with the competition between the PSP and DS can Microsoft even get in there or will they get bitchslapped out? I don't think it's a good idea, Microsoft has enough issues with it's xbox thing. I have a DS lite BTW, not a PSP. Based on VGCharts Numbers Nintendo DS 10,446,250 in the USA PSP 7,596,750 in the USA

They would have to make something different than the PSP...something newer and original....good luck with that one Microsoft...

Bet with disolitude: Left4Dead will have a higher Metacritic rating than Project Origin, 3 months after the second game's release.  (hasn't been 3 months but it looks like I won :-p )
