At what age did you get your first portable game device and what was it?

I had an Atari 2600, with little dial controllers... you could twist it to make your paddle go up or down on the screen. If you wanted to make a game harder, you flicked switch which made your paddle shorter, or flicked another switch to make the ball (a small white square on the screen) ricochet around the screen faster...

Updates:
Mine was a Nintendo dual screen Donkey Kong... back when one game would hold a child's interest for years

  • I was 11 years old and in the sixth grade, (this would be the Christmas of 1978).

    The game that I got was an electronic football game: Coleco Head to Head Football

    Check out that LED display!

    The 'Head to Head' series of games gave you the option of playing an opponent on defense.

    • I can remember when I was a kid that I wanted one of those but no-one who I knew in Australia at the time knew much about NFL

  • I had one in the 1980s I think it was called Galaxy Invaders - You can only imagine how primitive it was.
