What can Microsoft reallistically do to succceed in the handheld market? Regular console games are usually big 30-50 gb of game that require a lot of power to play smoothly. They have no foothold in the japanese market, where the absolutely biggest handheld games are made, and they already have problems to get enough exclusives for their console as it is. Sony has way more experience than them and they are pretty much giving up that side of the bussiness to concentrate on the home consoles.

Plus shooters & online multiplayer style games, and GaaS arnt what the handheld crowd wants.
MS would be in a very tough spot if they tried a handheld, and would need to focus their studios to differnt types of games then.

It just doesnt make any sense for them to try a handheld imo.
