Peter Moore, Microsoft’s global head of game content, has once again ruled out the possibility of the company launching its own portable games console.
"This is a tough business if you're a handset manufacturer - ask the Motorolas, the Nokias and the Ericssons of this world," Moore explained, "and our competence is in making the usage of these [devices] much easier for the user. And so, we're not in the business of building mobile hardware."
"Really, the only piece of hardware that the company has ever really got behind, of course, would be the Xbox. There are some instances where we've looked at things, but no, it's about software for us," he concluded.
