With the Steam Deck has come a veritable flood of Windows-based handheld devices. Throw in the ability to stream blockbuster-quality games, and we now need to start asking ourselves – are handhelds going to become *the* default form factor going forward?

That’s what we discuss in this section of our podcast this month. Be sure to share your own thoughts in the comments!

  • I was still working (now retired) when the PSP came out. I’d never had a handheld, but thought it might be nice for the lunch hour. The idea didn’t really pan out – the hour turned out to be too short to really put time into a game (I’m a big RPG/Strategy gamer), & since I’m driving when I travel & busy visiting when I get there, there really weren’t many opportunities to play it. I did end up getting a ton of use out of the PSP when I had to get 8 hour weekly chemo treatments – it’s why I’ve kept it (just in case).

    I enjoy playing on the tv. They’re fine for those that have a use for them, but handhelds just aren’t for me.
