The 3DS <i>is</i> in trouble

Yeah, the 3DS is in trouble. About as much trouble as, oh, say the DS at this point in it's life span. Oh, wait, that's not very much trouble at all.

Seriosly, the lack of sales, the lack of games, the exact same things happened with the DS. And if the 3DS could do well enough at $250, it'll do a lot better at $170.

The only possible problem is competition from the Vita, but with an $80 price advantage, and upcoming Mario games, the worst-case scenario I foresee for Nintendo is a tie between the two handhelds.

You know, when I go out in public places and see people playing games on handheld devices, it's usually on their phones. Not saying that people don't play games on handheld gaming devices however I also think a lot of people seem to be overlooking a rapidly growing market. Personally I think both Nintendo and Sony should be a lot more concerned about this market then each other.

I remember the DS being highly unimpressive for a good while. I know I bought mine when Advance Wars DS came out. Now THAT was a game. It was just after a price drop of its own, as I recall.

You know what else sucked for a good long while? PS3. You know what's pretty dece right now? PS3. Lots of consoles and handhelds have slow starts.

Nah, I prefer the emphasis that the visible HTML markup provides.

Escaping is what causes those angle brackets to be displayed instead of interpreted as HTML markup. Unescaped (the default unless the software puts a stop to it), you'd get the italics you wanted. Escaped, you get what you actually got. Escaping is safer and less disruptive.

(Edited due to unexpected escaping)
