What’s the history of portable gaming consoles? How did they start? Why have they mostly gone away? What was the appeal of them in the first place? What’s the appeal of them now? Will the Switch 2 fold in half?

The Actual Discussion

We talk about Nintendo’s uncontested superiority in this market and the few other consoles that did well while still not coming close to Nintendo’s crown. Emma talks about her history with various portable consoles and yearns for the good old days of the Nintendo DS. We also talk about what a portable console is now versus what it was then. All this, and more!
