    I've seen some old threads regarding this discussion, however I have not seen any up to date threads.
    What would you guys say is the best alternative/modern day PSP Go or Xperia Play? The idea of being able to carry something small that transforms into a gaming device is amazing and should be continued into the future.

    I should stress that I am looking for something that I can whip out of my pocket and slay others with it's beauty and pocket-sized elegance

    I know there is something called the PGS, but really? $250? No thank you.

    I created a thread on dominating the world and I apologize for that. I was high. #420

    So you think the best option out there is the PSP Go? How about for retro emulation?

    for pocket size, psp go is pretty tough to beat. especially since you can also use tv out, and a dual shock3 to make it a micro console too

    Never heard of the PGS. It's hard to find something that fits in your pocket. Xperia Play would be perfect but it has such a weak SoC that there is input lag on emulators. There is the PGD XD, roughly the size of a 3DS XL and a fairly powerful SoC. Probably won't fit in your pocket and you shouldn't, but I can't think of anything else.

    I still carry mine with me everyday

    I probably only take it out of the backpack to fiddle with once a month, but I always have it with me, heh

    The PSP GO? How is latency on the GO? Is it noticeable? Is there any at all?

    I dont notice any myself, i use mine on the go and i also use my Dock to play on my TV with a PS3 remote, only thing i find that has latency is SNES and some select gba titles but not anything worth mentioning

    i'm going to go ahead and say that it's fine to the extent I've never thought of the PSP Go and latency in the same breath
