Nintendo 3DS: The 3D is not the problem

4Player - "Nintendo has over-saturated the market with their own handhelds that people simply see no reason to buy another one at this time. Maybe Nintendo figured that the 3D technology was so impressive that people would break through any financial, or even redundancy, barrier and cash in. Or maybe they, themselves, lost a handle on just how many of these things were out there in the first place. Just look at the release dates for the DS. Nintendo DS – 2004, Nintendo DS Lite – 2006, Nintendo Dsi & Nintendo Dsi-XL – 2008, and finally Nintendo 3DS – 2011. Nintendo has released a new handheld almost every two years, and two in one year. It’s not so much that there aren’t any games for the 3DS than people simply have it already.
