All handhelds combined (gameboy-3ds) sold more than all of home consoles combined (Nintendo, Sony, Microsoft).

Personally, I think Nintendo should retire from home consoles and just focus entirely on handheld gaming.

Portable Nintendo consoles are awesome and very innovative!
Plus there's less competition. The Vita isn't really a threat.

Portables have more competition than home consoles do.

Google them. I'm too lazy to get exact numbers. But I'm definitely not lying!

You can check my numbers, or let me know what I left out. For the totals that were estimates I used the lowest estimate given.

Home consoles sold more, but like I said, if there were some systems I miss let me know (I only included the major stuff).

No they didn't, do some research before claiming "facts". GBA & DS have not outsold the PSX & PS2 respectively.

Well they aren't going to so don't give it anymore thought. I want my HD 3D Mario & Zelda as much as anyone else would.

Smartphones & tablets in the West would love to have a word with you.

Oh wow thank you for putting in the effort.
My "sources" was just some other person from gamefaqs.
My bad. I just thought that his statement was believable.

How about you stop being a business man and be a gamer. Nintendo games need a console experience too.
