Video games have been one of the best and most popular pastimes for centuries. There are millions of games and a variety of gaming devices available for gaming enthusiasts. There are even portable gaming devices that you can use on the go.
In a similar vein, here is a list of really cool portable gaming devices with different features. From handheld game consoles to the typical 2DS to clam-shell, you’ll find plenty of interesting items listed. So, let’s take a look.
Nintendo has been bringing wonderful gaming devices to the market for decades. Nintendo Switch is the company’s handheld game console for gaming fans of all ages. It is a full-featured gaming device that offers multiple play modes and a wide variety of games available.
Personally, I love the design of the Nintendo Switch – rectangular shape with soft curves with a matte plastic finish. Additionally, you can use the Joy-Cons as a single gamepad or as two separate controllers. It’s also extremely light with a 6.2 inch screen and 9 hours of battery life making it an ideal entertainment device that you can use anywhere.
Another handheld gaming device from Nintendo, the Nintendo Switch Lite, looks pretty much like the Nintendo Switch, but its dimensions are a bit smaller. It has a 5.5-inch touchscreen and weighs 0.61 pounds, making it even more portable than its predecessor.
However, unlike Nintendo Switch, the Lite One does not have detachable controllers. It has a basic operating system, a headphone jack and a battery life of 3 to 7 hours. Even though Nintendo had to remove some key features, this can still be seen as an improvement over its predecessor.
The Super Mario Bros Handheld Console is a versatile portable gaming device that combines a clock and built-in games. There are two Super Mario Brother games in the clock which you can play with the buttons. It’s a cool collector’s item for any Super Mario Bros fan.
The portable console has a red plastic body with a brushed metal surface and tactile rubber buttons. It has a small screen but offers crisp graphics and vivid colors. There is even a small speaker on the side with good sound quality.
Nintendo New 2DS XL is Nintendo’s return to the 2DS ecosystem with a large number of 2DS games and more to come. It features the same clam shell design that is typical of any 2DS or 3D gaming device, but it’s much more compact, convenient, and lightweight.
There is a huge collection of 2D games available which makes the Nintendo New 2DS XL a perfect gaming device for 2DS fans. Another advantage of the gaming device is that it comes with a charger and offers a good price for beginners. You can buy it in black / turquoise and white / orange color options.
