Phil Spencer Stokes Xbox Handheld Console Rumors

Some recent social media activity from Microsoft Gaming CEO Phil Spencer has stoked the ongoing rumors that an Xbox handheld console is in the works. The existence of the device has been alleged by several sources throughout February, at the height of the drama surrounding the possibility of some first-party Xbox games going multi-platform. The first such rumor originated from a recent episode of the Xbox News Cast Podcast, where co-host MAGG suggested that the next generation of Microsoft's gaming hardware will (once again) comprise two devices, a traditional console and a portable one. Although this source doesn't have a substantial track record of accurate leaks to speak of, Nick Baker, a much more established industry insider, subsequently echoed similar rumblings, while also mentioning that the next-gen Xbox console project has been reassigned to the Surface team.
