The 2DS & Vita TV Demonstrate Handheld Market Downfalls

CCC Says: "Nintendo and Sony recently added what are more or less welcome additions to their line-up of handhelds. Sony also surprised consumers with its reveal of Vita TV; a clever little box that will enable gamers the ability to stream videos, PS4 games, PSP games, and PSone games. Ignoring the limiting amount of onboard storage, the device’s ability to play Vita games offers an enticing entry point for would-be Vita gamers at the low price of $100. It’s a respectable way of expanding “Vita” to be a brand and not just a handheld that got a lukewarm reception. Couple that with the $129.99 2DS, a hinge-less, 3D-less 3DS, and the handheld market seems to be switching gears to afford consumers options. But the sudden about-face on the part of both companies seems to have some gamers feeling irritated. Have Sony and Nintendo essentially flipped-off early adopters of this generation of handhelds? Will a fragmented market bring you turmoil? Well, it depends on how well the units sell and how much you liked the 3DS and Vita to begin with."
