EW NO! It might end up as the 360 of handhelds. Unreliable.
But maybe. I would wait a year or so before buying it.

They already confirmed it, the Zune 360. There will be NO games developed for it, everyone is already developing for the DS (poor PSP, barely anything Sad)

i will NEVER touch a handheld that isn't made by ninte. i do own just about ever console thats been out since the nes(except the ps1 and 3), but i draw the line at handhelds. i trust NO other company with handhelds other than ninte, and i've yet to be shown why thats a bad decision...especially when you've watched them all fall at the feet of ninte one by one as they try to take thier throne CONSTANTLY.

Yeah the PSPGo is eww looking. It was a very stupid thing to do (to me). I've been doing handhelds with Ninty since the Gameboy. 85% of the people I know with a PSP just uses it as a music player and they have like 2-3 games. One being Madden.

No. Microsoft will probably name it the "Microsoft X", lol. Like Xbox, Xbox 360, lol.

I'm sticking with Gameboy. Why didn't they name the Ninty DS with Gameboy DS?

Funny a few days ago I dropped my PSP down the stairs and it didn't even get a scratch on it. I made a joke with my friends about if it was made by Microsoft it'll probably have shattered and my friend said it would have been like a glass sandwich.

I'll also stay with Nintendo handheld. I've spend so many hours playing Super Mario land (1,2 and my favorite 3 called Wario land) on my Gameboy. I also prefer the DS over the PSP.

I prefer all handhelds but the question is not would we buy a Microsoft handheld, it's do we really want a handheld version of Halo. Think about that.

No
Hmm.

If there was a handheld Halo, and it had the same community as Halo 3, then no. All they do is make new accounts to rank up because they can't rank up anymore, or sell accounts to somebody who wants a boosted account, and if your losing by 2 kills, your teammates go berserk, like Ike's and Link's Final Smash berserk.

I'd buy it if the hardware and design weren't crap, and if I could integrate my Gamertag into the handheld. I think for now, Microsoft could do something like that with their Zune HDs. The iPhone has a fairly good game selection, why can't the Zune HD?

I would. I already own a PSPgo and DS... I think the iPhone is pretty cool. Oh and to all the people saying its gonna be unreliable, I highly doubt it. Since the 360 is the only console from Microsoft to be unreliable (somewhat, but does not matter, all I care about it games)... at all. So a Microsoft handheld would be quite good. I hope they make the Zune HD a handheld.

It's true that Microsoft might figure out how to make a reliable handheld if they really spend time working on it, but if they continue their ways it might end up just as bad as the 360's failure rate. I mean, Microsoft invested billions of dollars in trying to fix the 360's red ring of death, but they didn't. So, knowing microsoft, it would most likely be at least a little more failing than the other handhelds. But who knows, maybe microsoft will rise and make the least failing handheld. It's unpredictable.

This happened only with the 360, it did not happen with the original Xbox. So the Zune HD is basically a good example of good hardware.

The original problems as well, but the 360 overshadows it so no one remembers.
