The Top 10 Worst-Selling Handhelds of All Time

Nintendo has crushed a large majority of competing video game handhelds since first popularizing the platform over 20 years ago. Save only a few, an overwhelming number of portables are commercial botches. Here are the top handheld failures.

The story is too old to be commented.

I didn't know GameBoy Micro was a failure but others were sure DOAs. Also, while the article states "save for a few", I think the only handheld to ever get a big chunck of handheld gaming aside from Nintendo products was PSP but even that's way behind DS. But hey, at least both handhelds are doing great and have awesome games.

I just bought a black DS Lite a few days ago because I wanted to take Pokemon Diamond on holiday, and my sister and I are having fun playing New Super Mario Bros. multiplayer with just one game as she has an older DS. This is one good handheld.

I also have a PSP, but I never buy games for it because they are either too short or PS2 ports, and the only game I am looking forward to is God of War: Chains of Olympus. I'm not into all this firmware stuff so I just keep legal. I just bought Daxter though for £10, and I look forward to completing it, although I heard it's also too short. Damn the PSP could be so much better.

What about the virtual boy. I figured it would be on there. It couldn't have sold more than 10 million.
