Obviously, the Xbox Series V in the picture is not real. In fact, the idea of ​​an Xbox console in the style of the Nintendo Switch, capable of saving and running its own games, is totally absurd at this point. But what does make sense is a handheld console designed exclusively for streaming games over xCloud, with 5G and a price tag of $ 199. Microsoft would sell them like donuts.

The 3D render – posted in

– shows a very crude portable Xbox concept: an old-fashioned design that would presumably have a mobile screen like a tiny laptop. The CPU and GPU would be housed in the lower brick along with the controls.

As designed, this Xbox Series V seems capable of running games autonomously – just like a Switch or a PSP does. But the result is a machine that would not be practical for two main reasons.

First, even if Microsoft and AMD managed to miniaturize the CPU and GPU of an Xbox Series S to fit them in a portable format, such a powerful console would consume too much battery. It would be the new Atari Lynx, who ate batteries like Donald eats hamburgers. The result would be a machine that is too fat, lacking autonomy and extremely uncomfortable to play.

That doesn’t mean a portable Xbox is pointless. Unlike. From a strategic point of view, Microsoft needs something like that. This console fits in with its plan to be everywhere: just as it offers the same games on Xbox consoles and PCs at home, Microsoft would offer a handheld console created for its xCloud video game streaming service.

The key is in the cloud

It would be a device created for those gamers who do not want to use Android cell phones and tablets to play anywhere comfortably. Both cell phones and tablets offer poor gaming experiences compared to a dedicated console like the Switch.

The key to achieving this would be in the cloud: Microsoft could design a portable console optimized to offer the best possible mobile experience and fully enjoy Xbox Series X and Xbox One titles. A machine connected by Wi-Fi or 5G connection to xCloud.

Basically, this Xbox Series V would be a dumb screen that uses basic hardware to stream online games. Everything on the console – from the integrated controller to network management to the Android operating system variant – would be optimized for streaming, with minimal latency and battery consumption.

And when it comes to design, you don’t have to reinvent the wheel. This theoretical Xbox Series V would basically be a Nintendo Switch, an ergonomic model that has been a resounding success because it offers a simply excellent user experience.

The result would be something similar to what you can see on these lines: a Switch hacked running Android and Xbox Games Pass to play Halo or any other game on xCloud.

In fact, it would be something much better. Being a machine created exclusively for streaming games, it could be lighter, thinner and less powerful than the Switch. And the price, without the need for a lot of RAM, storage and video memory – in fact, you wouldn’t even need a dedicated GPU – could easily be on the level of the Switch Lite: $ 199. A low-level ARM processor capable of carrying a 1080p screen with 5G and Wi-Fi connectivity would suffice.

Some will say why make a dedicated console when you can use an Android cell phone and a controller connected by Bluetooth or USB-C to access Project xCloud games. But the reality is that playing like this is not an optimal experience and, in addition, carrying a gamepad on you is a real nuisance.

A portable console specifically designed for xCloud would be perfect for those of us who want an experience gaming as powerful as an Xbox Series X but with the convenience of a Nintendo Switch – and without any of its limitations.

Redmond, put me two.
