I would prefer game console games longer and better graphics.

Around here, what's the difference? :P

:lol: I like consoles. Bigger screens, more controller variety, and I never got as much use out of a handheld as I do consoles.

Yeah i agree consoles are overall better. I mean handhelds are great and all but they wont be as good as consoles for a long time.

No, handhelds will never be as powerful as consoles. The consoles are not inhibited by space requirements, they can make them as big as the want! Just look at the PS3! That thing it a monster! (And by monster I mean big and ugly :wink: ) Handhelds are designed to be small so they can be portable. There is no way in the near future, or IMO, ever, that they could pack the same power into that small a space as they can into a game console.

Sure handhelds could be more powerful. Im talking about like fifty - one hundred years from now handhelds will be far more advance.

Man, all this talk about futuristic systems is getting me to think about PS9 (A PS2 marketing campaign)...the future waits!

Yes, but so will consoles. The ratio will stay the same.

I guess. But who knows they may come out with a console that will morph into a hanheld! A man can dream, a man can dream.

Handhelds are nice, but nothing can beat the consoles.

But neither a Console nor a Handheld can beat a PC, hehe. Get me Portable WoW and Portable UT 2004 and I might reconsider :P

Oh yeah!

I prefer handhelds over consoles, because I feel like I'm doing something productive while not moving. :P

Consoles. Sitting down in my comfy chair playing a powerful system on a big TV with a comfortable and full-featured controller can't be beat by a little portable.
