On the handheld front, Sony and Nintendo continue their fight for the minds and backpacks of the nation’s gamers by releasing ever-larger portable consoles. The Nintendo XL features six screens, a folding seat and a selection of overpriced candy bars, while the PlayStation Still Ostensibly Portable can now play all known forms of media, including 2-ton cuneiform tablets.
The year 2010 saw the release of Darth Maul’s Star Wars Tennis, Mario MMORPG, Clone Trooper Golf, Mario’s Dating Sim, Jar-Jar’s Dating Sim and Mario Storms the Beach at Normandy. Plus, handheld versions of all those. —Lore Sjöberg —Game Year in Review: 2010 (Wired)
