Review on Handheld Games ConsoleI think we are about to see a renewed interest in video games due to the popularity of many gaming mobile phone apps. According to Wikipedia:
"In 1976, Mattel introduced the first handheld electronic game with the release of Auto Race. Later, several companiesincluding Coleco and Milton Bradleymade their own single-game, lightweight table-top or handheld electronic game devices.The oldest true handheld game console with interchangeable cartridges is the Milton Bradley Microvision in 1979.
Nintendo is credited with popularizing the handheld console concept with the release of the Game Boy in 1989] and as of 2014 continues to dominate the handheld console market with their Nintendo 2DS and 3DS systems."
"The late 1980s and early 1990s saw the beginnings of the handheld game console industry as we know it, after the demise of the Microvision. As backlit LCD game consoles with color graphics consume a lot of power, they were not battery-friendly like the non-backlit original Game Boy whose monochrome graphics allowed longer battery life. By this point, rechargeable battery technology had not yet matured and so the more advanced game consoles of the time such as the Sega Game Gear and Atari Lynx did not have nearly as much success as the Game Boy.
Even though third-party rechargeable batteries were available for the battery-hungry alternatives to the Game Boy, these batteries employed a nickel-cadmium process and had to be completely discharged before being recharged to ensure maximum efficiency."
In conclusion: In my opinion I think that Mobile apps have changed the landscape of portable gaming consoles and there is most likely going to be an increase of interest in nostalgic handheld games in the future
