Xbox Handheld??This is a featured page

Add commentXbox on the go? Tell us what you think of the rumors. What are your wishlist features?

Well the rumors just wont go away. A week after Microsoft announced to the world their plans on a tablet PC names "Origami" there are new rumours doing the rounds stating that Microsoft is hard at work on a handheld gaming machine. Said to be in direct competition with Sony's PSP and Nintendo's DS handheld, this machine will take the best elements from both of these handheld gaming machines PLUS the addition of a top quality MP3 player to rival the Apple iPod.

So what can this mean for us gamers? What can we look forward to? Well to start with in my own opinion what they need to address more than anything are the weak points of the competitors products. For example, I have a PSP and at first it was the best thing since sliced bread, but come a year later it annoys me that they never included a second analogue stick which is what makes an FPS game so addictive. How about a built in hard drive for all that music and movies? A touch screen? AV outlets so I can plug it into my TV?

What ever Microsoft decides I am sure they will address these issues. Below are some examples of what we could be looking forward to.


Hmmmmmthis ones cool

This handheld should be like the PlayStation's Vita where you can continue your game from the 360 from the hand held. Then you can finish your game if your away from home.

I'm truly all for microsoft creating the next handheld game system. Ever since the psp came out I really enjoy it more than xbox 360 and ps3 put together, only the fact that it's portable and has good graphics. I like the fact that you can turn it into a mp3 player, photo gallary, computer(internet access), and movie player. If microsoft does put out a xbox handheld, it surly has to beat sony's psp or they might as well can the ideal. But like any videogame freak out there, their must be millions of questions out there about the new handheld such as: " will the new xbox handheld have better graphics, and better games than sony's psp. Will the new handheld have more and improved features like HD Movies or downloading music right to your handheld". There is alot to be done with this project if there decided to go to war with the psp. Me personally I would like to see: free online play, able to play on the tv but in full screen instead of just half the screen like the psp, download music like a portable itunes, new and improved graphics that matches with the xbox 360's graphics, free internet access( maybe if there was a add-on device where you can get internet everywhere like verizon wireless broadband instead of using a home router).If there deciding to do this than alot of people are counting on these features so it can blow the psp out of the water. All I have to say is good luck to microsoft, it'll be a challenge.
