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

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've just purchased a PSP Go + 16GB memory card for the exact reason...

31st March 2018 Update:

I have bought the M2 converter for my PSP Go. I now have 128GB Micro SD card inside this device + the internal 16GB.

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

    really have to buy the top end model to get a tv that doesnt have any of those compromises and that would've had more dimming zones too but i am not made o money

  • The Real Jdbye @ The Real Jdbye:
    @Julie_Pilgrim "very bright" is essentially pure white
    Gift
  • The Real Jdbye @ The Real Jdbye:
    pure white doesn't show up all that much it's mainly when looking at a bright sky
    Gift
  • The Real Jdbye @ The Real Jdbye:
    and if the clouds in the sky have slightly less definition to them because i turned on the contrast enhancer who cares

    that's not important

    i can't tell the difference

    but i can certainly tell the difference with black crush if i'm watching a scifi movie and i can't see wtf is going on

  • SG854 @ SG854:
    Human vision is logarithmic, it's not linear. And nits doesn't tell the whole story of perceived brightness. OLED'S look brighter then LCD's even when both are set to the same nit values because of the higher contrast ratio on OLED's

  • SG854 @ SG854:
    OLED's have a 3D look

    Charging port is more likely to fry up or battery fail before the display tbh lol

  • The Real Jdbye @ The Real Jdbye:
    "And nits doesn't tell the whole story of perceived brightness" it's not about perceived brightness it's about all HDR content in TV and movies being mastered for 1000 nits so it doesn't look right with anything lower, it's also about dynamic range

  • The Real Jdbye @ The Real Jdbye:
    "OLED's have a 3D look" no they don't lol
    Gift
  • SG854 @ SG854:
    As an owner of a OLED and you saying that you never seen an OLED I think I know what I'm talking about lol. I'm not talking about 3D as in 3D glasses. I'm talking about depth and pop in the picture

  • kenenthk @ kenenthk:
    I mean to be fair og vitas are still kicking and not many have suffered from pixel bleed and they're going on nearly 10 years
    Gift
  • SG854 @ SG854:
    OLED's can get away with a lower peak brightness and still provide punchy HDR because of their contrast ratio. Like I said human vision is logarithmic. The higher the peak brightness the diminishing returns in perceived brightness.

    Just get 5 years enjoyment out of it until Nintendy releases something and everyone forgets about switch games lol
    Gift
  • SG854 @ SG854:
    @The Real Jdbye Oleds hit around 750 nits nowadays. The difference between a 1000 nit and a 750 nit isn't huge. It's only about a 4% increase in perceived brightness. Not huge at all. You'll need at least 2000 nit displays to notice a bigger difference.
    Gift
  • SG854 @ SG854:
    Read this thread it explains it. 1000 nits is not a huge jump from 750 the LG OLEDs can hit. As I said human vision is non linear.
