Give us reasons how. Are you talking about home console gaming, handheld gaming, or both?

Maybe the handheld market, and even then that statement is pretty debatable...

Actually it was more like Sony pushed Nintendo out of the hardcore market, which made Nintendo go the casual route. Sony and MS still own the hardcore, and now they're going after the casual as well. Nintendo's market share certainly won't be going up once both launch. It's actually the opposite to what you just said TC.

Nintendo have much more competition in the handheld market than ever. 10 years ago the only games machines challenging Nintendo's domination of the handheld market were the Neo Geo Pocket and the Wonderswan.

Now there's the PSP, which, despite being a clear second place in sales to the DS, is still the best selling non-Nintendo handheld gaming machine ever by an absolutely gigantic margin. Additionally there is the iPhone and, increasingly, every other phone, devices which many people are increasingly (and correctly) viewing as gaming machines.

Nintendo are selling more handhelds than ever before, but that isn't because they have less competition, it's because the market for handheld games machines is bigger than it's ever been.

All that is happening is that Nintendo has realised that their twenty year monopoly on the handheld market is slipping out of their grasp. The DS was certainly innovative, but it wasn't powerful enough to keep hold of the core market, hence why the iPhone and PSP are gaining ground. 3DS will remedy this.
