THE BEST Handhelds
Alienware turned up at CES 2020 with a prototype gaming system that’s basically a Nintendo Switch, but with all of the capability of a Windows 10 gaming PC. The portable device can run all of your favorite PC games on its 8″ screen, and has detachable controllers. There’s no word on specs or if it will go into production yet.
There are lots of handheld retro game systems, but the GameShell offers far more versatility than others. In addition to playing emulators for Atari, GB, GBA, NES, MAME, MD, PS1, and more, its modular construction and GNU/LINUX-based dev kit encourages you hack and modify to your liking. Some assembly required.
Folks who love the games on the Nintendo Switch, but who never play on their TV set will want to check out the new Switch Lite, which plays all the games that support handheld mode, but is strictly a portable. Its controls are built in, and the motion and camera abilities are gone. Drops 9/20/19.
