    So last night the world was blessed with specs and images of the long rumored hand held gaming device from Microsoft, now dubbed the ZuneX.

    Said to have:

    - Built in Micro SD Slot
    - SIM Card Tray
    - Bluetooth headphone support
    - Optical digital output/ analog line output
    - ZuneX Original Games
    - Xbox Originals
    - OnLive Ready (huge imo)
    - 32GB Flash Drive
    - Built in rechargeable battery

    can't get to the link or see the pics from work, but sounds awesome. I'm a little tired of my DS. The last game I got for it was Final Fantasy Tactics Advanced, but got burned out at around 50 hours so I never finished it.

    Hmm. Wonder how they're going to port X-Box originals with no dual analog sticks. The PSP's main gripe was the lack of a 2nd.

    Better. Though I'm hoping the games are bit more in-depth and hard-core than iPod/iTouch games.

    Bad news for PSP maybe. It won't even put a dent in the DS sales though.

    This is where Apple should jump in the gaming industry. They could market their "cool" factor with an iGame or something similar.

    I think its a little late for anyone to jump in on handheld gaming market right now.

    Nintendo has a more than comfortable lead and Sony picked up the leftovers.

    You're right, it's near impossible for anyone to compete with Nintendo in the handheld market.

    BUT, Sony has only been in one generation, I think Microsoft could take a considerable bite out of their market share.
