      I was just reading that Microsoft did once consider a handheld and the name used was Xboy but they never took it any further. I myself would love to see a handheld from Microsoft especially since being a huge gamer myself on Xbox so I really feel it is a shame they didn't take this any further.

      Would you like to have seen a handheld from Microsoft? What are your thoughts on the name Xboy?

      Would've been a day one purchase for me, especially if 360 games digitally purchased were playable on it. :D

      The name does sound like a rip off of the gameboy, but I'm glad they didn't do it. It would have greatly divided their console titles and just fail in the end.
