I know right. Just look at how badly the DS got beaten the the technologically superior PSP. Before that, the GBA got its ass kicked by N-Gauge and Gizmondo. Back in the GBC days, they got beaten by the Neo Geo Pocket and Wonder Swan because of their more powerful processor and more colors. Let's not forget the original Gameboy. Man, that black and white piece of crap got murdered by the Game Gear. I think the Game Gear out sold it 10000 to 1. Nintendo just doesn't learn. Their only success in the portable sector was the Virtual Boy due to the lack of competition. I'll bet when the superior specs of the PSP2 comes out, everyone will abandon the 3DS just like they did with the DS. Shooting for better tech and shorter battery life defeats the whole purpose of a portable. I was constantly worried the 3DS's battery life would be horrible after seeing how advanced the graphics were, because I've been very disappointed in the progress being made for portable battery life for 3D gaming.
