I know that there has been the release of the Zune and the Windows phone but is this as close to an XBOX 360 handheld that we are going to get.

The idea of portable versions of XBOX exclusives such as Halo are the ultimate fantasy of Microsoft fanboys.

With the tittering sales of the PSP and its epic fail the PSP Go maybe it is time for Microsoft to step up and see if they can be worthy opponents for handheld veterans Nintendo.

Would an XBOX 360 handheld survive in the market with the sales of Micro fans alone?

I don't think Microsoft really has much of a chance with a portable gaming platform. Both they and Sony are seemingly doing the last thing left to do for a struggling console - devolving its respected name into a phone feature. It's what happened to the Walkman when the iPod appeared.

If the PSP Phone and Windows Phone 7 don't overtake the iPhone, I think the dedicated gaming handheld market is out of reach for both companies, too; as the 3DS has already seemingly snapped up all the third-party support there is (with the exception of a few of Sony's own studios). So, I don't think they have much of a chance. Apple already took over the gaming phone market, and Nintendo's already taken over the dedicated gaming handheld one (even before the 3DS has been released!).

Please, no, don't let this happen to us.
People who aren't XBOX fanboys know that Microsoft failed to make a gaming system. There are much less reasons to buy a XBOX360 then a PS3. XBOX has just way too less exclusives, wich Playstation is rich of. Microsoft is great at computers, so drop the gaming market and focus on computers. If Apple would come with a handheld (wich is not a phone) and they get supported by famous studios, they can rule the handheld market.

That would be weird to see an Xbox be portable. Infact, they are the only ones this Generation who hasn't made a portable system.

Nintendo = DS, DSi
Sony = PSP, PSP Go
Microsoft = Xbox 180? (360 divided by 2 is 180. :lol: )

Microsoft? Handheld? WHAAAT?
I just can't see it, and I'm trying, really.

They might be able to survive being squished in the middle of the Console(Sony(Better, more expensive),Nintendo(Cheaper, worse hardware)) and OS(Linux(FREE!),Apple(Expensive, Better)) wars, but something tells me that that won't work in the handheld area :/

Im sure that problem was fixed. I bet it was just a bug issue.
