Xbox Handheld Won't Play Games

With all the rumors flying around lately regarding the mythical Xbox portable, one that seems to take the cake may also make the most sense, depending on the way you look at it.

It started quite a long time ago, with many insiders, and publications, including Xbox Evolved receiving confirmation from inside sources of an Xbox handheld idea being researched by Microsoft. Most recently this year rumors have sprouted that Xbox poster boy J Allard and his team are hard at work on the device, with the news coming from Dean Takashi, industry insider. Later, the Origami project sprouted rumors that Microsoft was indeed created a handheld, only to be revealed as a prototype handheld Pocket PC. Now an even more interesting twist to the myth; the machine when completed, will not play games...

people need to understand that its not a "xbox" at all. Its a pocket pc :(

They are also making sound like. Look at the XBOX logo as a name not a console. So if they made a computer the computer will be under the XBOX name or any other product they make. Example lets say this is a car but my model is a xbox. So if anybody ask me what type of car I have I will say a Xbox. It's weird but I think thats where they're heading with this. So it's not a game handheld.

handhelds are nice ideas, but are something i've never really bothered with. I just play on console. Anyway you have nintendo, the leaders of portable gaming, if people really need handhelds, not the PSP trash...

I was looking forward to a xbox handheld. I already have an MP3 player so I don't know if i would buy this. Just not what I was looking for

A Sonic Unleashed Remaster Is Long Overdue

Still remembered as one of the best Sonic games of all time, I believe it's time Sonic Unleashed gets its overdue remaster after Sonic x Shadow Generations.

I think it's best we leave these games we're they the past

Secret Rings, Unleashed, Black Knight etc, they weren't the best at least enough for a remaster

Generations is getting one because they had something easy to shove Shadow into before the Sonic 3 film and it's probably the better ones they've did over the past decade or so.

To be honest I'd rather know stuff is in the works but other ppl throw fits over it so it's whatever

I'd rather they announce a game when it's like 3 months away. Quick little advertising campaign, round of interviews, gameplay deep dive, and a launch trailer. That's all you need. Cheaper marketing rather than wasting resources trying to maintain hype over like 4 years.

Also, it's more likely that people will be hyped up and make an impulse purchase, or a preorder if the release date is announced.

Not announcing too early also contributes to better work environment. I’m in IT and there’s just too many crunch happened because some higher ups set a hard deadline way too early down the line.
