And do it right. The DS is good for my daughter and the PSP just dose not offer what want. And what I want is killer games trigers instead of bumpers, two analogs, and rumble standard.

You'll get about a 1/2 hour of battery life.

MS can't make hardware to save their lives.

How many times has this been rumored?

CompGeek3343d ago

They better not call it the Xboy, that's SO lame.

DiLeCtioN3343d ago

am happy with my psp and definitely wont buy this for sure, but ill like to see what it offers.

What you want would cost more than a handheld should cost and Mike is right that battery wouldn't last even an hour. And hey give DS it's due it has plenty of games for 1-99 and yes even that 20-25 age frame.

Well if MS wants in I suppose they are allowed I just don't know if they can get what they want. Look at the Zune. It's been out and yet no one buys them. I think they are coming out with a revised Zune... maybe that'll be the handheld thingamajig

yeah but the zune was released at an awful time. Had they waited and released near to an iPod, people might want to upgrade (always happens) and then take a look at the zune. As it happens almost all the people who wanted an MP3/4 player already had one. It's all timing in that market.

Just like you I know the games that are available for the DS and the PSP. You never know they mite do it and actually do the right things or they mite totally bomb.

No matter who makes it even if it was the PSP2 or the DS extreme I still need dual analogs, rumble, and some truly appealing games. Oh yeah a standard HDD would be nice too.

I think a lot some gamers just have a problem with M$ and Xbox. My problem is with crappy games and horrible control schemes.

I also own a Zune. What sold me was the larger screen and the built in FM radio.

On the battery life, you can get 12 - 13 hours with out a charge. I use mine 9 hours a day. I did like 2 weeks of comparing it to all of the the available competition. If you go into a store you will se they sell pretty well. They sell nothing like ipods because ipod means MP3 player in the ear of the general public. But yeah the Zune was the best choice for me hands down.
