Yep, sure looks like it. ^^



Nintendo Network ID: Cheebee   3DS Code: 2320 - 6113 - 9046

 

I don't think the handheld skipped a gen, so no. The ds and psp were in the same gen as the ps2, gamecube and xbox, the ngp and 3ds are in the same one as the ps3, wii and 360. The handhelds just caught up to the consoles, like every other handheld before it.

The thread should stick to home-consoles more than hand-held...I guess it should start only by 2013. With 3DS and NGP its approaching.

I'd say 8th generation started with 3DS.

All of the consoles released in around 2000. DS and PSP released 2004 onward. Obvious trolling.



 

        

lol of course not.

Generations are defined by the most powerful hardware, namely home consoles.

Which was the first generation of handheld consoles?

According to the wiki there two different generations, one for the handhelds and one for the home consoles.



It doesn't start 'till Sony release the NGP.
