    "Widely regarded as one of the most popular handheld consoles of all time, the Switch can also be played as a traditional console. It's essentially the top of the category with no competition."

    "Five years ago my review might have been different- but let's face it, the Vita is just about dead. It is a sweet little handheld console, great graphics, very comfortable, easy to use. But it never had the widespread support from game developers it needed to be a success in the west. There is a great catalogue of Japanese games for it (especially jrpgs), but almost nothing from the west and only a few games a year these days. You're much better off going with another handheld."

    "The Nintendo 2DS is one of the best handheld systems I have ever owned and is highly versatile. I was pleasantly surprised because the bundle I got included a copy of Mario Kart 7, one of my favorite series of all time and the most frustrating. "

    "This is one of the best on the market. I like the size and the fact you can close it, and won't just break it if you drop it."

    "I love this new console. I love that it's both a console and handheld. It's built really well. I've not got a scratch on it and had it a while. It gets jammed in a bag on a regular basis. I am loving the titles available to play which for a newer console can sometimes be limiting. If you want something to play both connected to the TV and handheld, you can't go wrong."

    "VERY cool device that brings PC gaming to a handheld. What differentiates this device from other handhelds is that this device is a powerhouse compared to the rather restrictive performance you will find in other handhelds offered by Nintendo. This device can stream from your personal device using cloud based computing so you can play your entire library on your tablet. The one issue... its no longer for sale. "

    "This is surprisingly a good game console for the price. The graphics are pretty good and it has a lot of retro arcade games on it. It is somewhat cheaply made but that can be expected for the price. Just don't drop it. The only problem is that the battery isn't very good but it can be replaced easily with a better one. "
