At the moment but there is nothing to suggest that they can sustain this level indefinitely. Every form of gaming is a luxury and we are in a state of change were it is conceivable that traditional gaming faces its biggest challenges.

If the ipad mini was any cheaper... that would be the handheld of choice. that is the future! Nintendo... take note! (I've not mentioned Sony coz I believe they won't bother after the VIta crashes and burns).

What really gets me is we only here this kind of negative BS from people who never make dedicated handheld games. We always here this from the heads of some spec on the grass mobile studio, who want the attention.
Is this what this magazine is going to be like?
Mobile devs hating on dedicated handhelds, and of course because this is a bias ios magazine, they cant even fight back with counter opinions.

Look at BLOPS 2 on the PS3 / 360 averaging £40 and then you get BLOPS Declassified on the Vita which also has an on the shelf price of £39,99. Hardly stacks up. Who knows what the ultimate answer is but they need to find it as I hate playing games on the iPhone and iPad, I much prefer the Vita and 3DS for mobile gaming hence we have both in our household.

If I fancy a quick 10-15 minute gaming sesh and I can't have a quick blast of FIFA on PS3 then I tend to take out my phone and I play a bit of Bejeweled, Triple Town, Super Hexagon, Hero Academy or Plants v Zombies and that's with my 3DS been only a few feet away from me.
I'm not saying 69p games are the future but, for me at least, they provide worthwhile experiences in their own right. Would I play them for 6 hours straight? No but I wouldn't stick Skyrim in my 360 for ten minutes either. Gaming is big enough for them to co-exist nicely.
It's not a case of saying handhelds are doomed, they'll continue to have a place in gaming and deservedly so but the landscape has changed to the point that they need to do more than just offer the same experiences they did ten years ago if they want to appeal to more than the "core".
That's my unpopular two cents anyway.
