*Official* Microsoft Handheld

Nicknamed the [Origami]

http://xbox360.ign.com/articles/691/691756p1.html


hmmm, Interesting... Halo on the go.




A little big tho, Just a tad.




"Gamasutra reports that it appeared to have touch-screen capabilities, and was able to run what appeared to be an iteration of the popular game Halo. The device is expected to be Windows-compatible and to be a platform for other media besides electronic games. That would make Microsoft a direct competitor of Apple, Sony, and Nintendo in the handheld space."






and of course....a vid...

Hopefully it doesnt take the focus off the Xbox 360.




Discuss...

Now there you're wrong. No company will EVER touch GBA sales, and I'm guessing the story will remain the same when the next GB is released (the DS is not part of the GB line). Apple has pretty solid desktop/notebook sales. Their switch to Intel is only going to enhance those sales. Not to mention Apple has the iPod, again, like the GBA, untouchable. Sony, well Sony has their work cut out for them this console war, seeing as how their late to the game this time around.

With laptop and desktop sales declining on their end, I see the focus of Apple slowly moving away from computers and into the realm of portables. Obviously if Microsoft is trying to corner the market on this with a new portable, it will hurt Apple's chances of breaking into the portable console area.

I'm all mixed up with feelings of pro American businessism, and old sony fanboyism.

Remember Microsoft was late to the game last generation and they still beat out the PS2 so don't give up hope for Sony yet.

size dosnt really matter... makeing just portable game player isnt really smart because if you go to hang out with friends and you pull out your psp and start playing it you should be punched in the face, no one wants to see you play video games... witch is why MS is being smart and doing something more, play games is just a tiny little point of what this thing can do... good by apple and sony, MS unfournatly still rules the world... and they are right if this is truely what it can do and they can bring it at a reasonable price, this will change lives of how we exist with technology in our daily lives.

what i dont get is Apple in all its knowledge of knowing what the ppl want why didnt they think of something like this before?

But think about this; lets say you want to bring this everywhere you go [as advertised] where do you put it? The future demands portability. Thats why ipod, psp, and game boy were and is such a success.

this isnt for kids... were not talking about a toy. this isnt something to play your measly games and listen to music on, this is something better, this is just as portable as anything else. look at a laptop... you cant stick that in your pocket can you? yet millions of ppl have one, when these come out ppl will be making the switch. to adults if it runs on a battery its portbale, and thats what MS is planing on.
