Ayn Odin 2
ANBERNIC RG405V
Retroid Pocket 2S
Retroid Pocket 2 Plus Retro Handheld
Anbernic RG353PS
GPD WIN 4 2023
Kiddypow Handheld

Ally Rog (it does seem to have Issue with SD CARD fried due heat next cpu or SD Card doesnt seem work properly and I dont know if is been sorted out!)

There is lists of Handheld console on https://droix.co.uk/product-category/handhelds/handheld-game-consoles/

I am sure there is more handheld out there that I dont know about and there will even more new Handheld coming out next year too!

I really like my Steamdeck, I have the default SteamOS but I do use the desktop mode as well, I've got the 512gb version with a 512gb micro SD. It's actually very capable, I'm playing Starfield on it whilst travelling (on steam) and Fifa 22 (23 not supported) via EA app. Forza Horizon 5 runs well too.

I've also got retrodeck setup with my favourite games over the various consoles plus it will run a bunch of stuff natively via Proton such as classic games like Outrun Coast 2 Coast and WinUAE (I've got my A4k HDF running)

A very versatile bit of kit.

All nice. I always liked the Sony portable design. My switch is getting a workout thanks to the new Mario Wonder.

But...we all know what MISTer FPGA portable means. Portable Amiga. Portable Arcades. Portable everything pre-1995!

@Amiga Forever, it's a shame the Playstation Portal is not standalone and you have to stream games :-(

I've also noticed the crazy uptick in handhelds. I'm interested in the Steam Deck but not sure how much I'd actually use it. I have a real soft spot for vintage handhelds, as I'm sure you can imagine (since I'm here on AmiBay after all). My collection at present includes a GBA, Game Gear, PS Vita, Nintendo New 3DS XL, Neo Geo Pocket Color, WonderSwan Color...and each of these has been modded of course :p

I think the Nintendo 3DS is criminally underrated. It has me wanting more modern Nintendo handheld hardware.

Modern day handheld's don't do anything for me. Sony PSP all the way! :D

Always got it sat in the car's glovebox ready and waiting for a quick game.

Handhelds are nice, but, am not sure if I will bother with anymore. I have had 2 Sony PSP's in the past and both spent most of their time in the boxes. My wifey had the Nintendo Switch and I think I played on it a few times.

I just came back to my Nintendo DS. I've been discovering how capable this little gem is but I enjoyed it mostly for the New Super Mario Bros. replay and Tetris.

New Super Mario Bros is an excellent game, I'm currently playing through it (again) on my 3DS
