The era of portable gaming consoles, apparently, in the next few years will go into oblivion. Due to rampant spread of smartphones honorary title of "handheld consoles," now applies to almost any mobile phone for more than $ 200.

Oddly enough, but perestroika case with portable consoles we were a lot more fun than a set-top boxes. Soviet industry navigate the surprisingly fast and, like a real Chinese master copier, just four years cloned gaming system Nintendo Game & Watch. Japanese original in Japan appeared in the early 1980s, and we have known, and, as it seemed, fantastic, "Well, wait a minute!"
