cman: No shiat

People are happy with playing games on their mobile phone/tablet


But the 3DS is is selling well. In fact, it's off to a better start than the original DS, which was one of the most successful handheld systems of all time.

The problem isn't that handhelds can't compete or don't have a place alongside smartphones and tablets. The problem is that Sony sucks.

No good games = handheld fail.

Poor sales because people have decided in droves to instead spend their time actually doing something useful, perhaps even making a friend, rather than waste their existences killing imaginary leprechauns using their fingers. Durrr.

This is behind every Sony Failure since Betamax. CD and DVD worked for them because they joined up with other industry big players, ditto Blu Ray. Each time they went it alone they crashed and burned. Elcaset, MiniDisc, Memory Stick, ATRAC, SDDS and so on.

Maybe 3.5 inch floppies and Video8 camcorders are the exceptions.

The damn cards killed so much of the hype for it. They really need to get the pice of them down to SD card levels, or as close to it as possible.

Games wise things are slow, but the library is pretty diverse. No monster hunter is killing it in japan though. Currently finishing up Gravity rush and looking forward to persona 4 the golden. After that, i'm really not sure, but that's a problem i'm having on pretty much every platform right now. Beyond Borderlands and gw2, i'm not seeing anything that screams buy me the rest of the year.
