Nintendo 3DS and PS Vita will Matter for Another Three Years

While both gamers and game developers believe that handheld consoles are dead, Takuro Yamashita, CEO of NIS America has a different opinion.

Speaking about the handhelds Nintendo 3DS and Sony’s PS Vita to MCV, he opined that these devices still has life left in them and will be around for another two to three years. However, the PS3 and Xbox 360 consoles have reached the end of their term. It is time for developers to move on to PS4 and Xbox One but the same cannot be said about handheld consoles.

“PS Vita and 3DS will fade out only after two or three years in the west. While AAA developers are focusing on home consoles, indie developers should actually release good games on handhelds. It could help them achieve great success,” advised Yamashita.

His interview during Gamescom 2015 is an eye opener for developers because just because big studios have abandoned them doesn’t mean they should do. Instead of competing in the hugely crowded console space, it is better to do some great games on the handheld space.

“Small publishers can benefit a lot if they continue to publish games for PS Vita and 3DS,” he concluded.

Both consoles got launched three years ago but didn’t entice the audience as their earlier versions did.
