Xbox 180? Is that true?
Is Microsoft really making a hand held system? That is what my cousin said. Sounds cool but, I haven't heard any rumors or anything.:giveup:


M@RS 08-27-2008 03:16 PM

I've heard about it too...hmm let me see if I can find anything.

here's an article about it

LordOfTheFish 08-27-2008 03:18 PM

I'll look too.

Nicomon 08-27-2008 03:24 PM

It looks really neat on the picture, two thumbsticks too.

I wonder what it's graphical capabilities are?

LordOfTheFish 08-27-2008 03:26 PM

I found this:


The Xbox 180 (cute new nickname for the original Xbox that is sweeping the nation) didnít have much of a presence. Just that games such as Mortal Kombat Armageddon, Destroy All Humans 2, and LEGO Star Wars II will all be playable at E3.

Da_Man_2423 08-27-2008 04:46 PM

That was said at E3 2006...

This is all speculation at the moment, nothing concrete.

LordOfTheFish 08-27-2008 05:00 PM

Thats what I thought. I saw something on yahoo answers saying "There will be a Xbox 720 released around 2010/2011."

Da_Man_2423 08-27-2008 06:06 PM

Yahoo! Answers is a pretty unreliable source in my opinion...half the time they don't cite anything, and even then it's usually mumbo jumbo.

LordOfTheFish 08-28-2008 10:07 AM

Yeah, I doubt it 100%, but just thought I would mention.

Either they're referring to Zune that quite honestly, friends, is galaxies away from any decent handheld system, or they're simply shooting on the dark. If something related was announced, I'm sure even the average gamer would know.

LordOfTheFish 08-29-2008 11:12 PM

I saw a couple of pictures that looked like some sort of handheld system. Probably photoshopped, though.

Most definately photoshopped. It's actually remarkable how realistic they can make them look, though.

Serpentine Cougar 08-30-2008 07:47 AM

The picture in the Gamespot article even says "And I shall call mini-Xbox mockup!"

I don't think this is gonna happen.

LordOfTheFish 08-30-2008 10:45 PM

It would be neat if they did, though.

GeneralPloKoon 09-01-2008 06:34 PM

I tihkn an xbox portable would be dumb. But hey, they want money I bet it'll happen.

LordOfTheFish 09-01-2008 06:47 PM

Most likely.

M@RS 09-01-2008 07:42 PM

I kinda like the idea, it's kinda dumb, but at least they'll make more money.

LordOfTheFish 09-02-2008 03:13 PM

I guees they think that's the best way to stay in the game with Sony and Nintendo.

M@RS 09-02-2008 03:23 PM

I totally agree.

Agent_Katarn00 09-02-2008 06:57 PM

I personally am mainly a nintendo guy when it comes to game console.
I am a ultimate pc guy over everything.
But it would be pretty cool if they made a xbox 180.
But i don't have an xbox so my opinion doesn't really affect that much.:D

LordOfTheFish 09-02-2008 08:06 PM

Well I guess it wouldn't necessarily have to be called the 180, but maybe more along the lines of "Xbox Portable", wow that was hard to come up with.

Jacob Nion 09-02-2008 11:55 PM

I hope they do make it because I know I would buy it. It looks really awsome.

LordOfTheFish 09-03-2008 09:59 PM

If you are going by the pictures on google, then you are deceived. Those are fake, totally photoshopped.

Ctrl Alt Del 09-04-2008 03:21 PM

It's pretty hard to tell if a handheld console that's not even confirmed would be cool. And we have to be realists here, Micro$oft has no experience at all on that department.

LordOfTheFish 09-13-2008 11:23 AM

Yes, but neither did Sony and the PSP has been a great success. Not to mention, Microsoft, seems to be pleasing gamers all over the world more than any other company.

RoxStar 09-13-2008 04:08 PM

Short answer: No.

Long answer: No and Xbox 180 would be a terrible name.

LordOfTheFish 09-13-2008 08:57 PM

No one ever said it has to be called a 180...

I still like the idea.

Agent_Katarn00 09-15-2008 05:18 PM

I bet a Xbox hand held would be alot like a PSP only more graphical features,and PC and windows-like features ;)

LordOfTheFish 09-15-2008 09:35 PM

I am not that attracted to the PSP. I don't know why...Maybe, because after what happened to my PS2, I no longer trust or support Sony.

All though, a handheld my Microsoft? That I would buy.

If it were real, it wouldn't be something I would buy

I just rebuilt my 360 for the fourth time. Less than pleased.

Darth Eclipse 09-21-2008 07:24 PM

I think Xbox 180 is a cool name. I've been thinking for a long time that they might make an Xbox Portable type thing.

Also, I heard something about an Xbox 780. I also saw a photoshopped picture of it. The picture looked pretty cool lol...

I think Xbox 780 is a kinda dumb name though. I think it should be called Xbox X-Version...That's kinda dumb too...:xp:

Ctrl Alt Del 09-21-2008 07:29 PM

^ The 180 thing sounds good while the 720 sounds cheesy? What a reasoning...

LordOfTheFish 09-24-2008 04:08 PM

If Microsoft decides to make a handheld, it probably want have a number name. 180 is ok, but still taking a step back. 720 is to big of a name for such a thing.

Xbox Portable sounds much better, or the XP.

Maybe the should call it something like Zbox:bounce3:

Darth Avlectus 04-18-2009 04:49 AM

Let us just pray that if a handheld were ever made by microsoft, that it would be a reliable piece of equipment that didn't nickel and dime you to death for what they called optional extras and game performance enhancers which in reality might actually be necessary due to cheap assed ness of game designers, cheap design that overheats itself and is fragile as eggshells, and has issues with even playing the games you buy for it... Micro-X would be a catchier name.

It might just as much as it might not I think.

Fredi 07-06-2009 02:24 AM

Very creative names. Xbox 180 and Xbox 780.:¨:

TheChosen0ne 08-20-2009 07:11 PM

Sounds cool! might just save up to get it...:thmbup1:
