Speaking of the Vita why hasn't Microsoft ever relased a portable Xbox?


Windows 8 on phones is why...

They aren't going to compete against their own line of phones which is already almost DoA.

As for the VITA, I really really hope it does better over the next few years.. platform is amazing.

Because it is incredibly difficult to establish yourself in a new market and usually comes at the cost of billions (see Microsoft in the console market and the struggle Sony had with PSP).

Cause they aren't stupid. Only Nintendo seems to make money on handhelds. Sega, Sony, and others have all failed with handhelds. Plus, why would anyone jump into the handheld market with tablets and smart phones so prominent.

Microsoft Surface tablet running XBOX Live.



Accessing Xbox Live from a tablet does not = handheld like the Vita. Plus the access it will have on the tablet is to the entertainment apps on Xbox Live.

I'm the extremely rare individual.. the person that has never owned a handheld, owns a smart phone and a tablet, but yet I was drawn to the VITA.. for some extremely weird reason.

But they didn't fail. They didn't dominate the market like Nintendo did, but they craved a niche and profited. PSP even moreso since it sold over 75 million units. That's more than PS3, 360, SNES, NES, and any non-Nintendo handheld.

Microsoft is building its own 7-inch gaming tablet. Multiple sources familiar with plans within Redmond have confirmed to The Verge that initial hardware planning for an Xbox Surface is underway. Specifications for an Xbox Surface 7-inch tablet computing device leaked back in June ahead of Microsoft's Surface RT and Surface Pro announcement. We're told that the initial specs were accurate and that the final implementation is being worked on.

The Xbox Surface will likely include a custom ARM processor and high-bandwidth RAM designed specifically for gaming tasks. We're told these specifications could be altered to accommodate an unannounced Intel SoC and that the Xbox Surface is being developed independent of specific hardware architecture. Microsoft's Xbox Surface won't run a full version of Windows, rather this 7-inch tablet will run a custom Windows kernel. Messaging and other tablet functions may be supported, but the focus is on gaming.

I am pretty sure Sega didn't profit. Vita has yet to profit but time will tell for that obviously and there have been others all try to establish themselves in the handheld market all to just fail and go bankrupt.

Connecting devices. How ground breaking! Wish Xbox would have done that last year.
