Portable Game Consoles – What Great Fun
Gaming is incredibly popular with children, teens, and adults. Portable game consoles allow gamers to take their favorite games with them. Game manufacturers keep making new game consoles. One of the best new portable game consoles is the PlayStation Vita, which acts like a camera, small computer, and game console.
It allows gamers to play on their home PlayStation console and then continue playing on your handheld console. The PlayStation Vita offers WiFi capabilities and users need to purchase a memory card to play most of the high quality games. Many of the games are priced around $40 and there were twenty five titles available at the release date. The console costs $250.
Many gamers like using their iPhone or Android phones as their portable game console. There are so many fun apps that allow users to play. Many of the games that users can play on SmartPhone are short games that can be played while standing in line at the grocery store.
One of the most popular portable game consoles is the Nintendo 3DS which has a 3D display that can be appreciated without gamers needing to wear 3D glasses. It has great graphic.
Newer gamers do not like the fact that the 3DS requires the use of a stylus, but it works with the touch screen better than fingers or any other tool. The best part of the Nintendo 3DS is that it does not cost much (under $200) and there are many great games, like The Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time 3D, Kid Icarus: Uprising, Resident Evil: Revelations, Mario Kart 7, Pushmo, and Super Street Fighter IV: 3D Edition. The Nintendo 3DS has more options than touch screen games played on iPhone, iPods, or Androids. Another fun feature on the Nintendo 3DS is the ability to take 3D pictures.
Many of the portable game consoles are designed for children older than seven or eight. Parents who want a game console for their younger children can buy a LeapFrog Leapster Explorer Handhead Game Console. This console allows children to play fun games that are educational. Children can also read eBooks, watch videos, and play online with the Leapster. The Leapster works with a stylus and push buttons that are easy for young hands to use.
