A Brief History of Hand Held Gaming and Why Microsoft Needs to Be Involved

Triverse writes, "Many have tried to dethrone the mighty Nintendo from their pedistal built around hand held gaming. Those same companies have failed, some damn near into bankruptcy over their failed hand helds. It takes clout, it takes deep pockets and exclusive titles to even make a dent in the armor that the Game Boy built."

They are kind of involved, a few windows 8 tablets can run PC games like the Razer Edge, more will be able to do this as the adoption of intel haswell grows.

Nah, once you go there all cell phones and ipads become dedicated gaming devices. That's a portable computer that also does gaming really. In reality, it's good nintendo owns that market because it allows them to produce great things like Fire emblem, pokemon and animal crossing. It also helps keep nintendo in business so they can do the crazy experiments they do.

It can be called the XBox Small One.

Xbox Dead for the disagrees. :P

At this point they shouldn't even be involved in consoles.

How about fixing the Xbone and GFwL before we jump onto another failed venture.

How bout not commenting on fake troll articles like they are real lol. Starting after mine is done. k now!

triverse1529d ago

It is not a "fake troll article", it is as the title states, a brief history of hand helds and why MS needs to be involved.

How about not always coming to the defense of a company with shitty practices, hellvaguy?

"It is not a "fake troll article", it is as the title states, a brief history of hand helds and why MS needs to be involved."

Yes it was really was fake, unless MS recently announced plans to release a handheld because I've read nothing whatsoever on that.


Was saying to not comment on fake troll articles, sorry you got emo and went into defensive mode and spun it to thinking I was standing up for any company.

Hicken1528d ago

What makes it fake? It's an opinion piece on why the author thinks MS should be in the handheld market. Did you even read it?

No, that would be the sensible thing to do. And you're not the sensible type.

Speaking of, don't PM me with an exact copy of your last comment, all the while having me blocked.

Hey let's not get carried away now boys and girls their home console only did well with the 360 now your saying portable I think they should first perfect home consoles before doing anything else

BillytheBarbarian1529d ago

I would love a portable 360. Just make a 360 controller and throw a nice PSP or Vita screen in the middle of it and boom. Throw a decent sized SD card in there and play whatever is on the marketplace. Leave it without a disc drive to save space/parts. Also allow it to play games from your gamertag library. I would buy one yesterday.
