Robbie Bach to head up Xbox Handheld?

After overseeing the launch of Xbox and Xbox 360 worldwide from its initial inception as a Windows based Gaming device in the late nineties, through to the all powerful 'Official Console of the 2006 FIFA World Cup' Xbox 360, Robbie Bach moved on to internal pastures in the newly created Entertainment & Devices division of Microsoft late last year.

Tasked with making Microsoft's Music and entertainment arm a more effective global player and enabling it to compete against Apple's iPod, Robbie Bach may indeed again be at the forefront of an Xbox system. Recently, rumours of a handheld version of the Xbox have been the subject of many a discussion, but so far we've not been left with many clues to the authenticity of these claims. However, Reuters this week has let slip that Bach had been attending numerous round-tables and meetings between partners in the music industry to discuss the eventuality of a portable entertainment system to rival the iPod and possibly the PSP.

i don't find a handheld worth it. I mean look at sony's struggle with their big fan base.

Nintendo's too big of a beast for handhelds. A MS handheld would be completely snubbed.

Nintendo has to much experience in that department to allow other companies to take them down. You know how many tetris they sold over the years.
