Will there ever be an Xbox handheld game console?

Posted on May 31, 2014 at 8:12 am

There has always been talk of Xbox releasing a handheld games console but earlier this month new Microsoft head Phil Spencer rejected these claims. There are various reasons why Xbox have never gone into the market of handheld gaming, but one of the main reasons is likely to be mobile phones.

Games are constantly improving on mobiles but he has said there may be handheld controller support on mobile phones one day. There may not be a great deal of money to be made on handheld consoles and the Playstation Vita has not exactly lived up to expectations as yet.

Some graphics are considerably better on mobiles (on some games) and it’s difficult for some gamers to see the point, when they’re more than happy to wait and play games at home, whilst playing the odd few on their phones when they’re on the move. So maybe there will never be an Xbox handheld console, however, Microsoft would certainly want to keep the lid on a project if it was real so it’s not something that can be completely ruled out.

Sniper Elite has made its name over the years as a good quality shooter game and though it has never been the type of gain to draw in a cult-like following, that doesn’t means that it’s not worthy of a place in the charts.

This time round in number 3 you are a talented sharpshooter who must kill enemies in an open land. It’s based on World War II and there is more of an emphasis on player choice, which we’re often seeing with many modern games. The kill cam allows you to swiftly take out armoured tanks, while there is greater graphic detail.

The competitive multiplayer may not be the best on the market, but it is certainly worth a play in addition to the storyline. You can choose the type of shooter you want to be, but you’re certainly in for a challenge if you want to stay alive and make it as one of the most talented shooter sin the army.
