Quote:
It's just a matter of time before a mobile Xbox device becomes available. That's the word from Microsoft corporate vice president Shane Kim, who dropped the bombshell in an interview with game-enthusiast site Kikizo. Kim, a major player in Microsoft's Xbox program, made the statement toward the end of a wide-ranging chat with Kikizo's Adam Doree, who asked how the Xbox brand might extend into the mobile-gaming arena.
Kim explained that while Microsoft has focused lately on the "living room experience," its recent efforts do segue logically into mobile gaming. These include the ability for users to buy and download Xbox 360 games via Xbox live; and Project Natal, a motion-sensing technology that lets you control video games and Xbox 360 menus with body movements rather than with a peripheral controller:

Unfortunately this idea does not originate from Microsoft them selves
Some time ago, in fact almost soon after the Xbox 360 came out a guy by the name of Benjiman J Heck famous a console modder came up with the idea of making the Xbox 360 portable and the form of a laptop, The Official Blog of Benjamin J Heckendorn
check the rest of his mods stuff and be amazed

That. Is. F***king. AWESOME. I need to show my friend that link.....

I have another friend who tried to do this with an ORIGINAL XBox, and an old laptop. I think he got hung up on the video connector. How is that one connected?

I personally think the 1st xbox 360 laptop was the best although it had its flaws The Official Blog of Benjamin J Heckendorn revision 5 no linger has a keyboard and i liked that in the original but not so much in the second version

I also believe you can contact Ben and have him make you very own personal portable console but be prepared to pay extremely high prices and be prepared to wait a long time is he is in demand

Hell, I will do it myself! Won't be as pretty, but I would have done it, which is way cooler.
