from Game Boy to PSP, the best portable consoles

After the revolution brought at the end of last year by the new generation PlayStation 5 and Xbox Series X | S consoles, we were preparing to live a quiet summer, but then came the bombshell announcement of Steam Deck, an atypical portable console and very close to the PC world.

The shipments of the three Steam Deck models will not start before the end of this year (for the first users who have pre-ordered it), so in the meantime we have well thought of going to the rediscovery of the portable consoles that have made history.

Our review, of course, could not but begin with the Game Boy, which in 1989 started the modern history of portable platforms. For those who lived through the 90s, it is a cult object: it did not have a color screen, it was not backlit (certain things came with the revisions of the following years), but the form factor and the incredible playroom made it a global success. How can we not mention PSP? PlayStation Portable was an ambitious and technically advanced product, which established itself as a solid alternative to the Nintendo DS by hosting iconic series such as Metal Gear Solid, Grand Theft Auto, God of War, Final Fantasy and Ratchet & Clank.

It is not possible to condense the history of the best portable consoles ever into a simple news, so we invite you to watch the Special Video at the beginning. Good vision!
