Nintendo president Satoru Iwata doesn't agree that the handheld market is shrinking, as some would have you believe.
"I think a lot of this discussion is based on the premise that the handheld gaming device market is shrinking or vanishing and I don't think that is true," he told Kotaku.
He also doesn't believe cheap apps on smartphones have diminished the interested in dedicated gaming devices.
"I think that consumers who are willing to pay money for a gaming experience are looking for something that is more rich and are willing to spend some of that valuable time on that experience," he said.
