    Hi! Out of curiosity, I was wondering how you guys decide which handheld you're going to take with you when you go out. Say you have a 3DS and a regular DS, or a 3DS XL and a Vita, how do you choose?

    I'm just having the issue of "I want to play this, but I also want to play this on another console" and I really hate carrying around 2 consoles :P

    It depends on which game I want to play the most. Currently I want to play games on my 3DS, especially Fire Emblem Awakening. And the only game I have a slight desire to play from my PSP is Digimon Re:Digitize, so the 3DS wins.

    You're forgetting one thing: most people over the age of 10 don't use their handhelds as portables; they play at home like everything else. The only time I take any handheld with me is for a really grindy game like pokemon.

    My go-to is a GBA Micro with an EZ-Flash 4 flashcart. I also think DS Lite with R4i card and the 3 in 1 pak for GBA games is a close second for plane trips.

    I have N3DSXL, a DSi XL, a DSL, a 101 SP, and a GBM. I love them all, but I tend to stick with one for a few months and then move to another. Presently I mostly use the DSi XL.

    I do! I live in Tokyo, and like many people here, I have a god awful daily commute to work. Mine is particularly bad -- almost two hours each way. A handheld is a must for me!

    I can generally do everything I want with my 3DS and a DS flashcart. I'll take my micro with me as well if I want to play a GBA game.

    i take my og3ds with me to the office work, there are times where i have nothing to do so its a must,

    i sometimes take my n3dsXL with me as well, right now i have both with me .

    but i usually dont like playing outside.. i dont know but it feels not so cool like i am not feeling comfy with it, i only feel best while gaming when i am home,

    handhelds playing in my bed is best .

    It depends on the pocket I have.

    Sadly I do not take with me (would if could safely). 3DS bumper size issue. I use microfiber in between for now until I find something to put under bumpers (like a raise without falling out). If was not a concern, then the 3ds and I would travel.

    Usually the 3DS... Every so often the DS because the way 3DS emulates it doesn't please me, I alsoprefer the DS to emulate GB. I used to juggle a PSP for emulating SNES (which is what a PSP is for after all), but my wife has taken it for herself, so that one got sorted out. :P

    PSP Go due to the size. I used to take Vita with me but it really disturbs me in long walks in my pocket.

    I hardly touch my 3DSXL, DSi or Vita. I find myself grabbing my PSP loaded w/ my favorite Japanese baseball game and my extra PSP battery.

    I have my phone, a 3DS, a PSP Go and a Game Boy Micro.

    I used to take my 3DS with me all the time, but now the cool factor of the 3DS streetpass and counting steps has worn out after 4 years. I have it with me only if I'm currently playing anything. Anything that's casual enough to be played while I'm on the bus or in the subway. I'd rather not focus immensely and miss a stop.
    Now I simply take whatever I'm currently playing on. I've been playing Angry Birds lately, so I only take my phone with me.

    NDSL (TTDS + EZ4) for sure.

    Gameboy Micro with EZF4. But a DS Lite with R4 Gold and 3in1 expansion slot for GBA games is a close second.

    I've got a N3DS and a GP2X. I used to bring both with me so I had 3ds games and emulators, but now I can run emulators on my 3DS I tend to leave the GP2X at home and just use the 3DS.
