ms better have some good title if they are to do this, because it will end up like the PSP, which equals SHiIIYYYYYY

If MS releases a portable, they have just shoot themselves in the foot. Their can be more profitable if they work as a software company in the market.

This is pure genius.

I guess this makes the "RED RING OF DEATH PORTABLE."

Dont worry Xbox360 fans, you will pay full price and get a refurbished HAND-HELD soon. You guys love crap!!

Hey dont worry, maybe you will get ALL Xbox 1 games portable.

But hey its just me.

How much is this rumour gonna cost?

More CRAP from MS. MORE HAPPY MS customers

Cool something else for the DS to piss all over. MS would be brain dead to try this. The hand held market is OWNED by nintendo and has been since its dawn.

Especially when the sales in Ps3 start to increase over the next year or two.

Tying the PsP with the Ps3 would be a brilliant move to increase sales. It would be a must have add on when buy a Ps3.

...hardly a failure. Sony, luckily for them, is drawing from a HUGE install base of PS1/PS2 fans

The ZuneBoy though will be emulating Xbox One games I'd have only an installed base of 24 million X fans (with ALOT of cross over to X360)'ll be a much tougher draw.

If they can add the gaming functions to a solid music player (Zune is pretty good) as well as Remote Play functions like the PSP,then they may be able to make it work. If it is only and purely a game machine...forget it, the installed base of X fans is too small.
