Cohabitation: Why there's room for the 3DS and PlayStation Vita in a post-iPhone world

When the iphone get a decent line-up of games that are worth more than 5 minutes of attention then we can talk.

Yeah tiny wings, WTF (yep, wtf is a name of a game) are all good, but not anywhere near the quality of handhelds games from nintendo and sony.

I certainly think there will be room especially in the light of games such as Monster Hunter for PS Vita and whatever else comes to the 3DS. It will just be a matter of the developers of making games that appease us gamers enough to buy them and play them more so than on our phone.

I still say Nintendo held on to their casual games throne instead of being a 3-D PSP. This should have kept their position as the king of hand helds.

Because plenty of people don't like the iphone, and plenty of people like gaming on actual gaming devices. That's why there's room.
