The rise of handheld gaming has been a major trend in the video game industry in recent years. Handheld consoles like the Nintendo Switch and the Steam Deck have become increasingly popular, as they offer gamers the ability to play their favourite games on the go.

Modern handheld consoles are now capable of playing games that are just as visually impressive as those found on home consoles. This, combined with the fact that they are small and lightweight, makes them ideal for gamers who want to be able to play their favourite games anywhere, and therefore compete with mobile games for the eyeballs of consumers… and their wallets.

  • What are the specific legal challenges that developers and publishers of handheld games face?
  • What are the ethical considerations of in-game purchases, such as loot boxes and microtransactions?
  • Will the rise of handheld gaming impact the esports industry or is the power of traditional consoles and PCs too great?
  • How can the law ensure that handheld games are accessible to people with disabilities just like other forms of entertainment such as live music and sport?
  • What are the potential legal risks associated with the use of handheld gaming devices in public places, such as airplanes and schools?
  • How can the law keep up with the rapid pace of change in the handheld gaming industry?
  • What are the opportunities and challenges for solicitors in the field of handheld gaming?
  • What is the future of handheld gaming?
