I just finished an article for a new gaming system concept (the SX2) that you may find interesting\entertaining. Due to formatting, I can not post the entire article here in the VGC forum (I have to figure out a way to do this). Here is an exert:
"I am the first one to admit that I was wrong about my initial impressions on handheld systems - they are not just jealous little rug rats of their technically superior big brother consoles. They do have their unique appeal and I have found that this attraction was not limited to the specific 'handheld fan-boy' target audience. I have learned that console gamers of all ages typically have a portable system or two in their back pocket and enjoy the gaming experience on the small screen just as much as they do with a title being displayed in Hi-Def on their 56" LCD. The drivers of this cross-over enjoyment tend to focus on three main areas - portability, convenience and unique software releases. I admit that these items were also the primary reasons for me changing my tune regarding these 'mighty-mites' (I finally 'get it'!). But this personal admission/discovery is not the point of this article. Having the best of both worlds is my focus along with my hardware solution."
Here is a link to the entire article:
(the post at RFG will definitely have more forum interaction)
Hope you enjoy it and looking forward to your thoughts.
