Handheld games are better than home console games because they can both be played at home or taken with you on the road, essentially you can travel and play with them whereas you cannot take the home-console games. Furthermore, the handheld devices are cheaper than the home consoles and games can be downloaded or shared from the Internet whereas the home consoles require a CD to play with at all times. You also have download capabilities which allow you to play games but also to download books and/or movies so your entertainment options are greater.

I can agree with that it is good to play with the hendheld games because we can play indoors and outdoors, but I didn't see that we can play the handheld games for online. We can't play the home console games in outdoors, but the good thng is that we can meet all of the people in the world who had the same home console games. Through the online games we can make a good friend from the another country. For the handheld games, we have to compete with the computer. It doesn't meen that you can not play with the other players. If you want to play with the other friends you have to meet and play together, but the home console games, it's different. If you log in with your ID you can play the game with your friend when they are online.

Handheld games can not play in online but they can be downloaded from the Internet. You said that the good thing of home console games is that people can meet all of the people in the world who had the same home sonsole games and for the handheld games people have to confront with the computer. This is not true. Handheld games can compete with other players such as Nintendo DS in the game devices. Also, you said that it does not mean that people can not play with the other players, but I think that you have to insist only that home console games are better than handheld games.

I know that they can meet and compete each other. For example Nintendo DS if you want to compete with other player, you have to meet and play together. I know this because I have a Nintendo DS. You said that you can download the games from the internet, but it is illegal to down load the games. You have to buy the game packs from the internet. For example if you buy the R4 chip, you can down load a lot of stuff in there, so I tried to buy that chip. When I went to buy the R4 chips, I went to the LOTTE Department store and it is a big place as you know. They said that they don't sell the R4 chips because it is illegal. If is illegal, why don't they sell in the big place instead of the internet. I think I made a mistake. I tink I said that we can't compete with the other players, but I ment that if you want to competet with the other player, you have to meet and play.
