    too bad it's a fake. Xbox to go would be sweet! (only if it played original xbox discs)

    I agree. This thing is definitly a fake. No way any half decent designers and engineers would come up with something like this. The lid can't even close without squishing in the thumbsticks. I'm pretty sure Microsoft has a portable console on the drawing board but it won't be like this.

    Pam Anderson's "2 claims to fame" are more real than that.

    I'm all for fakes and mockups. but please. At least display realistic graphics for a handheld.

    Plus, whats with handhelds wanting to be like big consoles? Handhelds have and were always meant to be basic, simple fun games. whoever did the mock up needs a lesson in gaming.

    Seems feasible but im not convinced Microsoft are bothered about entering the portable gaming market, if they are we'll probbably hear about it at there E3 conferance tommoorw....

    Apparently they are, but I heard such vehement comments against the idea. Such as the market being saturated already and such.

    If they do, I think it will be just a new form of Pocket PC with a powerful 3D chip inside. As aimed towards gaming as the N-Gage was.

    If that's the case I hope it uses the Atari Jaguar's layout for its controls...a numberpad and a controller all in one. A game machine that can call your in-laws and tell them what a bad influence you've been on their daughter.

    i can't see anything that takes 12cm media being portable. it just seems like a horrible concept. at least psp has the whole convergence thing going for it. ms wouldn't know how to not just put a pc in a different box.

    They should know better than to make such a sub-par fake...a Microsoft handheld would weigh 10 pounds and be a foot-and-a-half long. But it would be powerful.

    and of course, rushed to market, and soon updated to the dismay and horror of rev A adopters...
