  • Modern handheld gaming has long been dominated by Nintendo and Sony. Each hardware manufacturer has
    multiple viable offerings derived either directly, or evolving from the respective DS and PlayStation
    Portable product lines. All of these devices are impressive multifunctional devices, with designs meant to
    encourage gameplay on the go, integration with the Internet, backwards compatibility to previous games, and
    so on, but each goes about this in different ways. Taking a few minutes to examine the main features, and
    getting more familiar with available options, accessories and possible limitations of each handheld is
    the optimal way to determine which is the best choice for a player.
