Handheld vs. consoles, which is better?

#11poopfeasts420Posted 1/29/2013 7:08:55 PM
I like handhelds better because I don't have to worry about not having the best possible experience just because I don't have the best HDTV or some surround sound headset. I still like consoles though.

Handhelds + PC is my choice.

Pretty much this.

Although, there are still many games I'd play on consoles.

Consoles are clearly better. Handhelds have always been held back by their limited tech. Console games have always been larger in budget and scope.

I love both but I'd have to go with handheld, simply out of the fact that I like to watch TV while playing video games.


This, plus unless you have a huge living space and video games aren't your sole hobby (tend to get a lot of comics and DVDs), then handhelds especially with downloadable games are more convenient.

I much prefer handhelds.

Cheaper. Self contained. You don't need to worry about high def TV or internet accounts (unless you want to), new controllers, or any of that. You don't have to set up a whole room around your system.

Just pop in a game and play. Plus you can play anywhere. Lots of pros for me on the handhelds.

This. Though I have a small TV I game on, and a TV I watch TV on.

I'll always strongly prefer to play games on a TV, so I generally prefer consoles. However, changing market conditions have pushed many of the types of games I enjoyed in the PS1 and PS2 era to handhelds. So I play 3DS not because I like handhelds as a platform, but because that's the only place I'll find certain kinds of games.

Ideally consoles. However, I prefer handhelds nowadays since they get the games I want. Both have their pros and cons. Consoles allow you to play on a bigger screen. Handheld is portable and you can take it anywhere.
