The first year of the 3DS looked lackluster at best. The price was way too high. The games were lacking. Then news of the Vita came out. Superior hardware and at the same price point as the 3DS. Everyone was predicting the Vita to crush the 3DS. Suddenly the 3DS looked like it was dead to rights. Next thing you know, there is a massive price drop, and the heavy hitters start falling. You have REvelations, MGS3D, Mario, Mario Kart 7, and more all dropping within a few months of each other and all within earshot of the Vita launch. And now the 3DS is selling like hotcakes while the Vita is dead in the water. It's like Nintendo was pulling it's punches until the Vita launch ON PURPOSE. So after all this, Nintendo are NOT idiots after all and are instead GENIUSES! Sony has the egg on it's face and not the other way around. Did anyone else see this coming? I sure didn't.
isn't hearing technically a dimension? so this should be called the 4DS. - I_Always_Die

Nintendo aren't idiots?

Why on earth do people keep referring to Nintendo as a plural object?

I wouldn't say "Yeah, Burger King are making bad decisions lately!"

This annoys me so much. I even see sites like 3dsbuzz doing it.

Gee, it's almost as if Nintendo purposely made the 3DS too expensive so when the news of the Vita came, they lowered the price so Vita fans would wait for a price cut, just like the one the 3DS. But that can't be all planned by Nintendo, right? It's not like they have saw this coming.
Gee, I wonder what time it is.

Thats an interesting problem. "Nintendo" is one company, but it is not composed of one man/woman. It's basically a Proper name which designates one object which is composed of many objects.

My point is, people always say:

"Microsoft sure is doing the right thing!"
"Sony isn't going to do that. Would they?"

But never anything like:

"Nintendo are going to release new games soon."

It's way to early to tell whether Vita is "dead in the water," and the 3DS never was.
