At its Computex 2016 press conference, AMD has taken the wraps off its brand new Radeon RX 480 graphics card: a brand new 14-nanometre chip designed for 2016 and 2017’s most demanding games and virtual reality graphics.

The Big Question: Would You Buy Another Handheld Console?

I love handheld consoles. I loved the PS Vita and I loved loved loved the 3DS.

But I’m wondering if Sony will ever make a handheld console again? And I’m wondering what the NX will even look like. Will it combine home consoles and handhelds in a way we’re not used to?
