Handheld gaming's golden summer

EuroGamer - I can't blame it on the sunshine (and I'm certainly not going to be casting any accusations towards the moonlight or the boogie either), as handheld gaming's really come into its own these past few months, and it's done so in the face of early adversity. When Nintendo's 3DS launched in 2011, it did so at a time when entering an iPad-saturated market seemed like a suicidal folly. When Sony's Vita launched later that year it was a more foolish proposition still, its concept of triple-A games shrunk down to fit in your pocket working against so very much common sense. (Culture)

I do enjoy sitting on the porch on a nice day with a really good RPG on a handheld :)

Yea my handheld gaming is done at home. I would never take it as a "gaming on the go" console because of the risk of it being stolen or breaking.

More handheld RPG's please.
