Just my thoughts on the subject. I think the real question is, what is viable for the present state of gaming in the marketplace? I fear that the Nintendo Switch has changed everything and Nintendo has killed their cash cow. (Replaced by a prize bull.) Really, what market is there for a portable at this point? Those gamers that you would not want to fork out $300 for, and then hand to them the Switch. A young audience, maybe. And how big of a market share would that be? What age group would we be looking at? Nintendo has always reigned as king in portable gaming. Sony has only been able to get a chunk of that pie. I donít think Sony is willing to step out onto that limb anymore, especially with the success of the Switch. Unless Sony can do a "me too" thing. Nintendo on the other hand will need to assess the situation that the Switch has created. I am hoping and thinking that they have something in the wings to fill that void soon. The last time I checked into it, the 3DS, its support, was waning with little being released in the way of games. Nintendo would have to be sure of themselves that the market was big enough to continue with a system pointed toward the younger gamer. I would be standing in line with all those kids, I like the portable price point, which would need to be low enough to entice parents.
I would love to have another PSP Vita thingy from Sony. But I am not sure they are even considering. Any rebuttals? Any new insight?
Someone please have a rebuttal! Give me a little hope!
