Do these things actually have appeal to anyone on these forums? I mean, I understand u might want to buy them for your kids, to hush them up (or, whatever). But how can anything like this, offer any entertainment or be fun... knowing, you could just playing a superior game on a computer instead.
As for killing time(?), that is why there are apps for you phone. So special people can be engrossed in their handheld even moAr. Great gift for kids who don't have Xbox, or a computer though.
Obviously, there is an appeal to people on these forums. I'm assuming you haven't read any of the previous comments.
I'd rather carry this around than a laptop or tablet, and gaming on a dedicated gaming device will always be better than what they can throw on a phone. Buttons and joysticks by themselves make a huge difference.
