Other - consoles generally don't have the RPGs I like.

I just enjoy relaxing while playing handheld games. For whatever reason, I've always preferred them.

Other: It's cheaper and I can generally get the same satisfaction out of it. Also, the convenience of stop-and-drop pick-up-and-play is much better than starting up a console and getting really invested just to have to turn it off in half an hour.

Game news is the best news.

Console games try too hard to be low rate movies.

I like being able to move around when I am playing games. Console games pretty much keep me rooted in the same spot. I can't lay in bed and play my PS3

Most PS3/360 games just aren't as fun as 3DS games. A lot of them feel more like interactive movies then games. Since I got my 3DS last summer I have been much more interested in Nintendo then Sony or MS

3DS games are $20 cheaper then console games

I still play consoles just as much, if not more then Hand helds though.

I have trouble keeping up with fast movement in some games(mostly 2D platformers)
and I'm stuck to my TV at home with a console.
a handheld comes with its own screen so it can be played while watching TV, and can be played on the go.
