I'm barely a Nintendo fan these days. This would make me cut them off completely.

Smartphone "gaming" is a joke.

It's good for casual gaming but that is about it.

If they did this, while they are at it shoot a Zelda and Mario over to Sony/Microsoft..... Since they will already be whoring themselves out to Apple and Google

Smartphone gaming is a joke... for now. When/if more phones have real controlls, like xperia Play, they could be a serious option to Nintendos and Sonys handhelds. The hardware in modern phones is getting pretty strong.

until they overcome the problem of your battery dying in about 2 mins of trying to play a dedicated type game with no proper controls i believe smartphone/tablet gaming will always be a joke imo.

I wonder how much of this is just your usual posturing by activist investors. Why would Nintendo pay to develop games for some other platform? It makes no strategic sense for them to do so at the moment. It also would amount to a capitulation in a market they helped to create and dominate. Those investors should sell their positions if they have so little faith in the company they're vested in.

That makes about as much sense as Microsoft or Sony making games for iphone/android...

iPhone and other mobile gaming types are definitely gaining in popularity. Also with the promise of the upcoming ARM chip which promises PS3 and Xbox 360 matching graphics will help. Nintendo should definitely make use of this great technology.

In a Nintendo handheld? ok. Nintendo might not be doing so hot the past few weeks but they have plenty of money and good ideas. The 3ds will pick up once people forget about the 3d part...

The initial article was a conspiracy

DONT PAY ATTENTION TO POSTS LIKE THESE ABOUT MOBILE TAKING OVER OR NINTENDO MAKING IOS GAMES BECAUSE THEY ARE CONTRIBUTING TO BAD MEDIA
