Reader Discussion: Do You Prefer Console Or Handheld?

by Kyle Hilliard on Nov 28, 2015 at 11:25 AM

As technology moves forward, the gap between handheld and console gaming is getting smaller. Which one do you prefer?

Obviously, some experiences will only be available on console, and those are great, but on the occasion where the two versions of a game are similar, which has your preference? In those occasions, I tend to prefer handheld. Games like Guacamelee and Sound Shapes I played on Vita, and I've been waiting to play Axiom Verge on on Vita, though it did mean I wasn't able to play it this year. The same can be said for this year's You Must Build a Boat. There was no way I was playing that game anywhere but my iPhone.

What about you? Will you always take a giant screen over portability? Let us know in the comments below.
