Well, that's good news. Not sure how well that's worked out for Sony though. I mean, won't that just decrease their software sales?

It would be interesting to see. I think there are some console gamers who just do not buy portables and if they could play all Nintendo's portable games on their home console with improvements like better AA or increased frame rate etc they would be extra game sales and would bolster the home consoles release list. Making the home console more attractive in general to hardcore gamers. For the portables though, if people in general buy the "best" version and choose the home console to play it on, the portables may suffer.

I think Nintendo should make its own phone as their next handheld, whilst also selling legacy content, really older stuff on tablets/smartphones. Keeping the new stuff and cutting edge stuff on their new systems. No one really cares (I mean would be aggrieved or envious) if Super Mario World is released on iPad these days. Might as well rake in the profits.

Single handheld/ home console that streams to HD. Go mobile on old content (pre-Wii, making exception for Pokemon), saving new for first party handheld to prime the pump. Sell 1st party for $60 regardless of home/ hand. Drop the royalties on third party to below Sony and let that be reflected in retail price.

No problem.

PlayStation consoles outselling Xbox by more than 3:1

If this is the trend for the rest of the generation, everyone else got licked.

Holy shit, Crytek closed Crytek Austin and Crytek UK. The fall of Free Radical is complete.

Agree on the rest of it but this is something I find troublesome. At the moment they sell two systems, if selling one then that would have to at least equal the volume in sales of both combined. And if it was some hybrid device it would have to be technically comprimised because of the portable side of it.

It would be another Nintendo console with no third party support but it would have much better Nintendo 1st party support as all studios could work on games that would play on the one system.

So they are going to leapfrog mobile phones and wearable tech... by making non-wearable tech.... which is what they already do... only with an integrated hardware/software strategy... which is what they already do....

WTF?

You don't wear the tech.  It floats in the air and follows you, so it's non wearable.

It's just Nintendo marketing BS. Remember when back before theVirtual Boy was announced, Nintendo referred to it as a "Third Pillar." Everyone was excited to see what it was, and then they announced the VB, lol.

So in Nintendo's 1985, Miyamoto was killed creating an alternate timeline where Pokemon wasn't invented and everyone has floatable tech?  This is heavy!

I had one. Bought it for $30 brand new with a bunch of $5 games about a year after it launched. It was an awful system, but some of the games were a lot fun. I was hoping Nintendo would release those games on 3DS eShop, because they deserve to be played, but . . . *sigh*
