      yeah but they laid off mostly their metaverse and VR shit
      I'm pretty sure they should consider Xbox as a success right now considering how well the Series S did
      as for making a mobile Xbox, they should just find a way to get Xbox Games Pass on steam decks, it would be an instant hit

      They're just letting go of the redundant staff. Or in more blunt terms, useless and/or lazy cunts. They'll rehire a bunch of them, probably at lower salary, in a year or two

    I think Microsoft needs to stay away from games, period. After the Xbone, and lack of any interesting games since 2014, I think they need to call it quits.

      That's basically what they're doing. Shillpass is going to keep them relevant for the foreseeable future even though it doesn't make them money. At this point no one expects Fable to be good or for Halo to ever be competently maintained again.

    No, but they should contract nintendo to do it because they've been making the best handhelds for decades.

    In an alternate reality, the series s is the portable and the series x is the console version
    like that fake nintendo fusion rumor where the console and handheld shared most of the same library

      The S is considerably more powerful than a Steam Deck and came out first. A handheld S would not have been feasible. Not even at 720p.

        In 2020 yeah but with 2023 technology, that would totally be possible with Microsoft hardware majik
        The leaked switch 2 is already pretty close to the series s when it comes to potential as a handheld (dlss and ray tracing support confirmed the nvidia docs), specs wise basically making it a weaker, portable series s

    They literally cannot.
    Technology cannot just arbitrarily shrunk, anon.
    The best they could do is a cloud based handheld, but those already exist.

      MS can easily undercut them with price since they don't expect to profit from hardware.

    Are there original xbox games on game pass?

    The problem with that idea is that those games are designed to run on the chip in Xbox and only that chip and it draws a lot more power from the mains then any battery could provide. PC games on the other hand have a ton of settings options to make them work on a broad range of hardware including weaker PC's and laptops. That means a lot can be done on really low power settings like 5-15w.
    Xbox games are designed for one system and one system only, they would need the developers to go into each and every game and make it compatible with a new low power chip and that is an insane task that will never happen. At this point streaming is basically all they have. Between the Switch and handheld PC's big libraries I just don't see how a new player can break into the market starting from zero, especially since what the two big players, Sony and Microsoft offer, is mostly on PC anyway. It looks like the future of handhelds for the foreseeable future is Nintendo, PC and Streaming.

    It’s something I’ve wanted ever since 7th gen. The thing is I want a REAL handheld though with it’s own games and library separate from the main consoles like the DS and PSP. Nowadays it would probably just be a portable Xbox One and that’s not as interesting to me. I’d still buy it though cause I’m an Xboxfag

    There's zero point in doing so since if you don't want a gaymen laptop or you don't want to install Windows 10/11 on a Steam Deck, there's already Windows 11 handhelds that are probably at least getting on par with a Series S in terms of games/performance. Those devices can be pricey especially since you need to import them from China, but they're basically doing the job for Microsoft, without being reliant on cloud gaming to do the job for you.
    Yeah you'll be missing out on playing backwards compatible OG Xbox/360 games and the few Xbone exclusives, but that's it really.

    Why bother when xbox doesn't put out exclusives? At that point it'd just be a worse steam deck.

    xemu actually works? It never wants to run anything I've attempted to throw at it, despite converting all of them to it's shitty mandated iso format.
