Worst Handheld Consoles Ever


The Top TenXW

1Sega Nomad (1995)

I call bull! The Tiger R-Zone should be #1. Yes, it's not a HAND HELD, but it's PORTABLE.

2Cybiko (1998)
3Game Boy Advance SP (2003)

Seriously? The GBA SP was a truly great handheld, surpassing its predecessors in every possible aspect

4Game King (2003)
5Gpang (2004)
6Gizmondo (2005)
7PSP (2004/2005)
8PSP Slim and Lite (2007)

What is wrong with the psp light

To be honest, the lite was the best because it has the best of both worlds, 3000 quality with 1000 customability, many pirated games were played on this handheld

9Nintendo 3ds XL (2012)

You're hilarious. I LOVE the 3DS XL. The DSi is what sucks.

Why is this on the list anyway

First, it was the Nintendo ds.
Then, it's the Nintendo ds lite.
After, it's the Nintendo dsi and finally the Nintendo dsi xl.
After that, it was the Nintendo 3ds (really, a console that people can see in 3d without 3d glasses, they would have eye problems! )
And now, the Nintendo 3ds xl (really, Nintendo?!? -. -)

What's next? Nintendo 4ds? - BlueDiamondFromNowhere

10Virtual Boy (1995)

The first counterfeit console from Nintendo isn't really portable or hand-held. Another reason the virtual boy is as phony as a three-dollar bill is that the graphics are in red and black.

The Contenders

11Game Gadget (2012)
13Atari Lynx (1989)
15PS Vita
16Nintendo 2ds

Its absolutely useless. All its for is playing 3ds games in 2d, but that's not the worst of it. The worst part is the HORRIBLE design. Its got to be the most uncomfortable ga,ming experience ever

17Tiger Game.com (1997)

Game-com, Game-dot-com, either way it sucks like a vacuum cleaner.

18Nvidia Shield (2013)

This handheld console is good. - noo7na7

19Nokia N-Gage (2003)

Why is the Sega Nomad #1 but not this? The Nomad is awesome since it's literally a Sega Genesis in the palm of your hands! This is legitimately terrible. The games are just as crap as the previous Tiger LCD handhelds but what makes it worse is that it's up close to your one eye in red and black meaning that you have to cross your eyes just to play the game. The colors only make it worse.

A crazy cuckoo cross between the virtual boy (note the lowercase letters) and Tiger wrist games (which barely qualify as video games)
