While it may be that, people aren't buying it to play it on the go.

Back that up or stop.

 

On topic:  If Sony could dedicate resources to it, I'd don't see why it couldn't be marginally successful.  I recommended Vita to several people back when it first came out but they started to ignore it too much.  If they can learn from that, put it out there and let the market decide.

The decline in handheld sales should suffice.

No, that doesn't suffice.  Not at all.  How does a reduction in the sales trends of past mobile devices translate to "people aren't buying it [Switch] to play it on the go"?

Handhelds are dead IMO.

Well I mean the 3ds did fantastic so. even if the DS sold a lot better I wouldn't call 64.3 million sales dead.

exactly. 3DS outsold both the Wii U/XO combined - 66mln vs 45mln

even 3DS/PSV - 81.5mln vs 104mln Wii U/XO/PS4 looks ok

I think a lot of thoae 3DS sales have come from a good chunk of people buying the system several times. In terms of real consumers, I estimate the 3DS market to be around 50M. I am confident that we will see the Switch selling less than the 3DS, continuing the downwards trend.

I agree that a lot of people have more than one 3ds but 50m is still respectable, and idk about the switch like I have no clue to me it could be great or it could just do decent sales but I don't think it's going to flop. I also agree that the handheld market is going down but it's nowhere near to being dead yet. 



Switch is not the 3DS ... DS/3DS are declining and Vita died outright because they were too close to mobile gaming.

They're low end devices. 

Switch is a portable console, that makes a difference, it's a higher end product. In 3 years IMO Nintendo will have a Switch that can run PS4/XB1 graphics/ports join their Switch family (Tegra Xavier), and they will not have the same decline in years 4/5/6 if they are smart.



both the psp and psvita were over engineered for thier times.

PSP should have been a handheld ps1

PSVIta should have been handhed ps2

obviously mabey with a little extra horsepower

i think a psp3 is a good idea as long as they learn from mistakes, its got to be cheap readily availiable and good software support.

handheld games should be handheld games look at ds and 3ds



...not much time to post on here anymore, used to be some good ol times on VGchartz...

Not anymore. 

People want more if you're asking them to pay money for a portable because they can already get "ok" level of gaming for free from their smartphone/tablet. 

You have to give them something way beyond that now, something closer to a home console experience. The DS/3DS model doesn't work as well any more, but Nintendo already recoginized this in making the Switch. 



Sony response to Switch is real. Don`t release a new, just release a portable tablet-like PS4 and it`s all good.
