It'll be called Microsoft Xbox Portable (XP) with a focus on western-style games, shooters, sports, racers, etc.

Nintendo has a stranglehold on the handheld market but 3DS games are more chibi-style, cute and colorful. PS Vita lacks games now because of poor support. Which leaves the market wide open for 'mature' games on the go.

So what do you think, good idea?

A portable Xbox 360 would be so great I could cry.

Would not buy.

Portable gaming is for kids, IMO.

Why not the competition would only be with the 3ds since the PSV is pretty much a failure.

Nintendo has let Sony and Microsoft fight over the scraps they owned with the consoles and went on to control the mobile world.

Sony tried to take it from them and failed. Microsoft can throw all the money they want at it but I don't think they'd have any better luck. Best to stick to consoles. Pokemon alone makes the Gameboy/DS/3DS/whatever a force that might be best left alone.

Nope, if Sony cannot get it then MS definitely will not. Between the DS and mobile gaming, it is not a good place for ms to be in.
