Will Nintendo Switch kill Nintendo 3DS

 

 

Cordova, TN; March 6, in the year of our Lord 2017--Family Friendly Gaming, the industry leader in covering the family friendly video games is exploring a very real consequence of the release of the Nintendo Switch. It could kill off the Nintendo 3DS. Why? The Nintendo Switch is a home console hand held hybrid. How long will it take people to wonder why they need a hand held device like the Nintendo 3DS once they have a home console that can also go portable? After all the graphics, and games will be more advanced on the Nintendo Switch than the Nintendo 3DS. So why would anyone choose the Nintendo 3DS over the Nintendo Switch? If they are given the opportunity of course. I know price can be a concern. After all Nintendo 3DS games are cheaper than Nintendo Switch games.

There are also many more Nintendo 3DS video games to play than there are Nintendo Switch video games to play. I do not believe the Nintendo Switch will immediately kill off the Nintendo 3DS. I do think it is conceivable that if the video game industry continues to go this direction there will be no more need for hand held video games. We could be five or ten years off before the final hand held video game cartridge or disc is released. I hope I am wrong about this projected future. I really do. Nintendo has opened a Pandora’s Box that they cannot close again. Numerous times Nintendo was saved by their hand held devices. Meaning their home consoles (like Gamecube, Nintendo 64, and Wii U) lost that console generation war. Ultimately if hand helds are killed off, and then Nintendo has a bad home console – well it could spell the end of Nintendo as well.

I know there are a lot of what ifs in these scenarios. God is the only one who really knows what the future will hold. Plenty of video game journalists have numerous opinions on what will happen, and what will not happen. I am merely one voice crying out from the wilderness. I am merely giving one opinion on what could happen. If Nintendo makes Nintendo DS and Nintendo 3DS hand held video games playable on the Nintendo Switch; then that would increase the potential death of the hand held video game devices. I do not think this will apply to the mobile devices like Android and iOS. They have phones and other services attached to them. Apps might be the last hand held video games the industry ever sees. Unless of course there is some resurgence device in the future.

God bless,
