Gaming on the go has been absolutely dominated by mobile devices, primarily iOS and Android devices. To carry around a dedicated handheld gaming device requires a bit of thought since it isn’t a necessity like our cell phones are.
When Nintendo released its Nintendo 3DS last March, it didn’t create as big of a splash in the mobile gaming world as Nintendo would have liked, selling just over 3 million units worldwide a month after its US debut. With that in mind, many don’t expect Sony’s newly released gaming handheld, the Playstation Vita, to sell as well as Sony anticipates it to, which will most likely mark the death of dedicated handheld gaming devices to make way for mobile devices to continue their uprising.
With mobile gaming supremacy on the line, Sony isn’t holding back in terms of technology in the PS Vita with 3G service supplied by AT&T, a 5-inch OLED screen, and a whole slew of other impressive bells and whistles with the power of the Playstation Network behind it, could the PS Vita mark the triumphant return of dedicated gaming handheld devices or should Sony and Nintendo make way for Apple and Google’s gaming future?
