Sixth Generation Handhelds

If you enjoy playing handheld games, you would have been happy with the products introduced in the sixth generation of games. Nintendo released the Game Boy Advance in 2001, the Game Boy Advance SP in 2003, and the Game Boy Micro in 2005.

Many cell phones and MP3 players began adding video games to their units, too. Even professionals, with their small handheld computers, PDAs (Personal Digital Assistants), could take some time off to play a video game or two.
