Well, when I was smaller and owned an original Game Boy, my parents wouldn't let me bring it into school while a few of the other kids did. Now I play on the bus during my journeys in and out of uni because it takes almost a whole hour to get in. Longer if the traffic's really bad during the mornings such as in winter. Over here in Scotland, it doesn't seem to be that common although other students seem to be more than reluctant to show off their latest mobile phone features. A few friends of mine do though and they also play their handhelds during lectures (don't do it, kids ). Too bad they're not on the same route as me! On the other hand, while on holiday in Asia, I always see a few people bringing out their DS or PSP whether on the bus or train. I even see guys in suits sitting at the surgery playing their handheld while they wait to be called (don't ask why I was in one ) So out of curiousity, I'm wondering how many here play on public transport.
