Handheld gaming had a mixed year in 2008. On one hand, people had epic releases like God of War: Chains of Olympus and Ninja Gaiden Dual Swords, and on the other hand, they saw a very weak holiday release line-up on both the consoles (PSP and Nintendo DS). The surprise element was the release of the Nintendo DSi and the PSP 3000 - both redesigns of the same hardware with notable 'improvements'.
Still, as the tradition goes. Even from the few AAA releases this year, Tech2 will pick out the best games worth playing among both the handheld consoles this year.
