Would you welcome a PS4/Xbox One Handheld device to play your digital games on?
Xbone handheld with what game? There exclusives for it plus I don't think a handheld would handle Crackdown 3 destruction online plus might overheat .
You've not read the article, have you?
He's still groggy because he just crawled out from under his bridge.
I would absolutely accept a down scaled 720p portable way to play my massive ps4 library. I would also love an excuse to buy a portable Xbox One and ply all those games I've missed out on in, admittedly, a lower frame rate and resolution. I still play my Vita and may get a Switch.
well if resolution and power is why made you miss out on the xbox one, then i hope you're going to purchase the xbox scorpio so you no longer have to worry about playing a game in and inferior resolution or with low power. since that's your reason for missing out.
It would depend on a lot of things. Definitely the price of the systems ad games. How powerful the systems were. How much support they would get. I got a 3DS because it has huge game support and lots of exclusives you can't play anywhere else. Plus the price was right. It also was B/C with the original DS and I own tons of those games too. So it was worth getting. Don't know if I would rush out and buy another Sony handheld after the little support it's receiving now. I'm not even thinking about the Switch for at least another year or so. Microsoft had already said they weren't planning on making any handheld systems in the future.
I've streamed to my Vita from my PS4 and I've streamed to my Surface from my Xbox One and used my Xbox One controller with it. I didn't care for the small screen experience on either. I get the appeal of gaming on the go, but porting console games to a small screen doesn't always go well. To me, mobile gaming should fit the platform and the games should be shorter since mobile is usually for killing time in between doing other things.
It wouldn't be about porting the games, as this would be basically the Xbox One and PS4 system in handheld form, no need to port....
Maybe port wasn't the best word to use, I mean not all games designed to fit a big screen play well on a much smaller screen. Something that measures a couple inches across on a 50" screen is very difficult to see on a 5" screen.
Play anywhere may someday allow for mobile to play XB1 software through Play Anywhere. I think making a dedicated portable vs. using the portable smart devices we already own is rather pointless.
"Would you welcome an XB1/PS4 Handheld?" not so much for me. i never have the time that i wish when i'm on the go to play anything big. even when i make time it's still not enough and so i'm just fine with stationary gaming.
Nah, I don't want an under powered PlayStation or Xbox.
They're already underpowered running on jaguar chips.
No to Xbox handheld for me. Of any kind. But if other people want one, they should let M$ know. It's just not how I game
You know for damn sure Microsoft is never going to enter the handheld market, especially after their gaming division failed with the Zune. Sony might make another handheld system but it's very unlikely considering their last one won't even cross the 20 million mark and a possible successor will have an even tougher time on the market.
Zune was a MP3 player, not a game system. Windows Phone would have been a better comparison but even that device never had any XB games on it.
Well if it were to incorporate the console game in some way then sure. Similar to what they did with injustice 2 on mobile. Otherwise I'd say it's not necessary if you are like me and would only play for 5 or 10 minutes while I'm standing in line somewhere.
I like playing PS4 on the big screen. I'd rather have a PS2 portable, something like this: https://www.youtube.com/wat...
No, only Nintendo can do
Sure. why not?
Coz so many people can't play a game with less than amazing graphix they wouldn't make it as you would have to ... Otherwise the handheld would be huge with power of like Scorpio or Pro.... And for me no lol
MS can't populate Xb1 with games. Sony abandoned the Vita and left it to indies which I'm not interested it. They sold it as console quality AAA games but that died after a year so I do not trust Sony with handhelds.
Sounds a lot like PSVR is repeating Vita's "success".
with Sony's record for suppoting their handhelds, not from Sony...
Would welcome a PS4 handheld (or a PSP2/Vita 2 without the excessive anti-piracy). Loving my Vita but I think we need a new handheld from Sony to support the newer game engines., especially if they're just going to keep giving exclusive content to the PS4 when it's a Vita/PS4 game.
I am not sure i would like either in small form.i ha e a vita and tried the remote play... just didnt make me excited to ppay anything
god no from either one of them I'm glad xbox knows to stay out of it. sony just give people who bought a vita hope but never deliver
NOPE!!! Nintendo Switch is good enough for the mobile scene...
From Xbox no , best leave that market to Nintendo .
I'd rather game on the boob tube. Handhelds are ok, I'm not opposed to gaming on them, just prefer the TV instead of a screen no bigger then my cell phone. Though I will say, if I lived somewhere that I was constantly taking a train/subway/ what have you. Or If I traveled a ton for work, I'd be far more into handheld gaming.
Xbox already said it won't happen the Handheld console market isn't important to them like Sony and Nintendo.
Nintendo is handheld king since 1989, not a chance for Xbox/Playstation. Xbox/Playstation need to keep focusing on making home consoles, that's their market.
I may not purchase a handheld, but they are all welcomed.
An Xbox handheld sounds wonderful, but only If It can also play PC games Natively. But we all know that's not going to happen.
Microsoft are never gonna make one. As for Sony, it can't succeed unless they use SD or microSD cards. The PSP and Vita would have been a lot more successful and would have given Nintendo a run for their money if it wasn't for the fact you had to buy a super expensive proprietary memory card for them. Sales for the PSP and Vita (especially the Vita) would have been a lot higher if it was using SD cards.
I don't even welcome current handhelds, why would I welcome one of these?
No thanks! However, I do want a Samsung Galaxy Note 8 Switch. xD
