I must be from opposite world, my phone rarely graces my hands and my Vita might as well be glued to them. Oh well, more fun for me!

I wouldn't say that the 3DS is "struggling". It's been the highest selling system in the US for something ridiculous like 7 of the last 8 months. If that's not enough to meet expectations, then whoever made the expectations is an idiot

No, 3DS is the highest selling videogame device in 2013 despite the lack of western 3rd party support, it's the "media" that just attacks Nintendo by all means possible to gain more hits by riding the trend, even trying to turn 3DS into some sort of a failure and purposefully attach it with the vita which is a complete failure(with about only 10% of the market share and only one competitor, the 3DS).

To be honest, even if you look at the console scene, the whole market is only kept alive by the sales of CoD, BF, GTA and sports games, and these are the games that sell well. It's sad but true.
