Origami Never Sounded So Fun

On March 9, it looks like Microsoft is ready to announce its bid to take over the handheld market with its pocket PC-esque Origami device. Right now, the site contains only a teaser ad, but promises more on the 9th.

Some concept photos show Halo on the screen. If Origami takes current Xbox disks rather than an Origami-only format, this is really exciting. I would say it isn't likely, but it seems MS might champion Origami as a do-all handheld rather than just a gaming system. It may cost an arm and a leg, however I'm willing to pay more for a kick-ass device if I can play the games I already own on it. Further, I may even buy games I normally wouldn't. For instance, I don't play Xbox Live, but I might buy multiplayer friendly games for the Origami if it meant I could hop in to a quick frag-fest while waiting for my plane.
