OMG!!! can you imagine? a portable xbox that is LIGHT and plays xbox games?! im gonna buy this thing when it first comes out!! omg im going crazy! gimme my xboy! your thoughts on this bad boy?


XBOY 'ANNOUNCEMENT' GETS FANBOYS INTO A LATHER
As today's Consumer Electronics Show yawned into action in Las Vegas (it's never been the same since the game and porn industries split to form their own exhibitions), a confident Bill Gates strode onto a nearby platform and began to harangue passers-by with his views on the technological state of the world today.
Barely had he finished the last billion-dollar syllable before websites across the world confidently predicted that Xboy (as any handheld project from Microsoft will be wittily referred to) was in production, will be a serious contender to the GameBoy and will be on the shelves by 2006. No later

that link goes to an annoucement that was made on the 9th of january 2003.
if there is any truth to this you should be able to find a recent article comparing it to the psp.

Actually, from reading the articles it's still speculation that it's a handheld Xbox. It's a combination music/video player of some sort, that is being worked on by the Xbox team. However, saying it's a handheld Xbox is just speculation right now still. The previous handheld Xbox attempts were shelved.

Is there any point? The PSP is getitng more popular by the day, and I can't see what "amazing innovation" could be added to a Microsoft verison that would have millions of people rushing out to buy one.

Nah, they'll concentrate on their Xbox Live and 360 market if you ask me, while I still wait patiently for the corporate pigs at Sony deliver unto me a shiny PS3.

They might be market sharks, but Sony know how to make consoles

I hate to break it to everyone but the UMD format the PSP uses is pretty much dead. Not to mention the supplied image is very suspect in authenticity to say the very least, some of our UFO debunkers should have a look and see what they think. If MS trys to weasel into the handheld market after forcing themselves upon console gaming they really dont have any sense of reality anymore, Nintendo has had the upper hand in the handheld market for ages with their Gameboy line.

Xboy? I've always heard it called the Origami and that it didn't look like crap.

Seriously, if it looks like that, would you buy it? It's a mess.

Currently there all just rumors...They might make an "Xboy" but theres no chance of seeing it in 06'.

All the pics of it are just photoshop jobs.

Heres some examples:

In fact, Microsoft is not only not planning to enter the portable business, but is hugely dismissive of the whole sector, with Moore describing handheld gaming as "a very solitary, time-killing activity."

"It's not something you share," he explained. "We believe that the future is the social element of gaming, and that's going to be done through a console, not through a handheld gaming device".

I kinda agree hand helds are cool but consoles are much better atleast growing up they were, still like my psp though.

I currently dont own any game consoles, But I think I'm going to get an X360...I'm just waiting for when the PS3 is released...because regaurdless of what MS says now, when November comes around, they price will fall. I think $50...But hoping for $100 price drop.


The PS3 is just to expensive for me, and Nintendo is a little to kiddy in my eyes...but who knows, If they can pull off making it 100% backward compatable with every console theyv'e ever made...then I might consider purchasing it...maybe.

PS3's only "big deal" is the blu-ray drive...But I plan on staying 100% out of the format war. Beside, in 2007 theres a very good chance that a multi-format player will be made...meaning it will play basically everything...cd, dvd, hd-dvd, & BD.
