Handhelds. If I want some stationary gaming I'll jump on my computer.

Portables due to bad eyesight and easier to see what is happening on the portable.

Hmm, for one of my friends with really crummy vision, it's the exact opposite. He has to sit about 3 feet in front of the TV to see what's going on, and he hates portables because of the small screens.

Now for me, portables are best. Just the fact that I can sit there in my bed playing my DS into the wee hours of the morning is enough for me. I love consoles as well, but I've always liked portables better. Maybe it has something to do with the fact that my first game system ever was a GameBoy Color.

Good point.

While I own more consoles then portables, I have to side with portables. I like the idea of playing a game when ever I get bored or waiting for something. If I had a GBA SP I'd likely have that in place of my iPod Nano and just start playing a game when I get bored rather then listen to music.

And the only console that can not be made portable... at the moment, is the PS3, because it's HUGE!
