One of the many rumors of Xbox What we heard in recent days indicates that the company could be working on its own portable console, similar to what was seen with the Steam Deck and ROG Ally. However, in a recent interview, Phil Spencer, head of Xbox, pointed out that The main problem with these pieces of hardware is their operating system, i.e. Windows.

As part of an interview with The Verge after the presentation of the Xbox podcast that we saw yesterday, Spencer was questioned about the possibility of following Nintendo's path and giving us a portable or hybrid console for its next generation. Although the director praised the work of companies like Asus, pointed out that the operating system used by these devices is a clear problem that has not yet been solved. This is what he said about it:

“One of the weak points of the experience on a ROG or Lenovo (Legion Go) is Windows. How Windows works with driver input only at that type of DPI, on a smaller eight or seven inch screen. “That's a real design point that our platform team is working on with Windows to ensure the experience is even better.”

The only cases where the Windows operating system is not a problem is the Nintendo Switch, which uses its own firmware, and the Steam Deck, which uses a variation of Linux to function. The rest of the platforms that we see today use Windows as such, and not a variation that works adequately with the type of experience that is presented to us, and the drawbacks can be seen especially when we talk about the interface and controls.

Now the question is: does this mean the next Xbox console won't be portable? Although many still do not rule out that this may happen in the future, Phil Spencer has made it clear that his next piece of hardware will be traditional. Along with this, it has been revealed that we will have more information about the Xbox platform at the end of 2024, and in the future details about the company's next generation will be shared. On related topics, you can learn more about the successor to the Xbox Series X|S here. Likewise, it is confirmed that Game Pass will not reach Nintendo and PlayStation consoles.

Editor's Note:

Considering the success of this type of platform, and the fact that they can easily work with a variation of Windows, I don't rule out the possibility of Xbox giving us a portable console in the future, especially considering that this would help them attract more users. to Game Pass.
