f you’re an Xbox gamer who’s been hoping for an alternative handheld gaming experience to the Nintendo Switch, you might be in luck. That’s if a patent application filed by Microsoft on 9 July 2019 turns from sketches into a physical device.
According to the patent application, the Xbox handheld attaches to, and charges, an existing touchscreen device, like a smartphone. The joypads are clipped to the phone case in a bid to offer more immersive, console-like gaming. It’s unclear whether the console would play mobile games, or streaming console-quality titles from Xbox Live.
Sarang Sheth, editor of Yanko Design and one of our favourite concept designers, has created a series of slick renders based on those patent applications. He’s given the device the name Xbox Cloud.
The renders show a controller in two halves, which clip to either side of a smartphone, turning it into a handheld gaming console, featuring all the buttons you’d find on original Xbox controllers including the left and right triggers on the top.
