Handheld devices and their popularity

Nowadays, gaming has become a popular hobby, however, everyone does not gets the same amount of time to play. This is where handheld devices come in. These can help people game anywhere they want and are much easier to carry around.

But mobile devices can also do that. However, there is a huge difference. Mobile phones cannot run AAA video game titles due to hardware limitations. Online PC games are usually not ported to mobile devices and when they are, there is usually no cross-play.
