Nicholas Puleo: "I have a confession; I’m a gadget whore. If it plugs into a wall, it’s shiny, and has an “on” switch I probably have bought it or lusted over it at some point. Handheld systems fall into this realm and I’ve owned just about every one since the Game Boy. The problem is - I never give them the love they deserve - despite every intention of getting my money’s worth. I think part of the problem I’ve always had was most "portable" games just felt like an incomplete package and the systems they ran on a bit shallow. My expectation of them was too high as I wanted the console like experience. Sony’s PlayStation Vita may be a game changer for me, it feels like a portable console and the games have the same quality and swagger as their bigger console brothers."
