Phil Spencer all but confirms plans for Xbox portable console

Last night, Microsoft unveiled three new Xbox consoles set to hit the market. However, despite previous rumours that such a platform was in development, there was no word on any handheld Xbox gaming device.

Following the show, Phil Spencer sat down with IGN, where he was asked specifically about an Xbox handheld device, and the company’s mantra of ‘going where the players are’. And, despite no Xbox handheld device being officially confirmed (nor denied), Spencer agreed: “I think we should have a handheld”.

Said Spencer: “The future for us in hardware is pretty awesome, and the work that the team is doing around different form factors, different ways to play, I’m incredibly excited about. Today was about the games… but we will have a time to come out and talk more about platform, and we can’t wait to bring it to you.”
