All of the handheld combined sold more than all of the home consoles combined

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!

I have a feeling you might be wrong. I'm gonna gather the numbers now.

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.
