I just bought a DS because the bus ride to work is boring and was wondering where do other people mainly  play handheld consoles? In your livingroom, in bed, on a bus, sitting in a bathroom?

Honestly I hardly ever play portable games 'on the go' which is why I often complain about long winded RPGs or whatever I would prefer on the PS2. Plenty of PSP games for example, Crisis Core etc I would prefer a straight up PS2 verion instead of the PSP version.


I occasionally take it to uni, but it gets bashed around in my bag and I just dislike doing that, I know it's a portable machine, but it's also an expensive piece of hardware. 

So yeah, as freakish and demented as it sounds, I play my portable systems the same way I play my console games, at home, sat down on my sofa/bed.

when i had a DS i would play it during school. it was really boring in study hall because our classes were like an hour and half long. i would sometimes play it on the school bus when i was in high school. i would also play it on a chair watching tv.  only time i could think of when i played it.

I play my DS in my car during my lunch break, and play my psp at home because there is less glare. It's too hard to see with any sunlight shining.

During my senior year of high school, I spent a lot of time in some of my more boring/easy classes playing Disgaea on my PSP. That took the edge off how insanely uninteresting the classes were.

In bed and on the train. Or when I leave for a weekend going somewhere. There is always time to play a little DS/PSP. :)

In my last job I was travelling a lot, so having my DS on the plane was a must. Got a lot of TWEWY knocked out that way.

Well that's kind of a stupid question isn't it? I play them wherever since they're handheld.

My brother's in college and goes to a lot of baseball games and tournaments. Those things are boring as hell, so I usually take my PSP along to either play Burnout or listen to the Bombcast.

Planes and bedroom is all for me. I'm hoping to use mine more on the new mass transit system, but I get distracted by everything outside.

I sometimes wish I had a commute on public transportationjust so that I could get some handheld gaming in. As it stands, my DS is primarily used on Airplanes or when on vacation. It's a shame, really, since so many great games are coming out for it lately.

the last portable game device i had was a gameboy color years ago and i can still remember smashing it up in zelda for ages with that terrible little extended light, almost to the point of where my eyes would get blurry so i had to quit.

but i don't see the point in a handheld now.  with a  ps3, 360, and awesome computer there's no way id use one at home and 90% of the places i go i always drive.
