I am of course talking about the ridiculous amount of handheld game systems that have done a wonderful job of dividing the market and ruining everything for everybody.
With this week's announcement of the 3DS, the scales have come close to collapsing under the sheer weight of new handhelds that keep spilling onto the market.

It never used to be this way, and now it seems to be getting worse and worse.
It has to stop. Read on as I ramble incoherently about the ridiculous situation.
