NIS America President Thinks Vita, 3DS Will Fade Out

Within Two to Three Years, no more dedicated 'handhelds' in the Western World!

While NIS America President and CEO Takuro Yamashita believes 'the right time has come' for major publishers to shift from PlS3/X360 to PS4/XB1 in the West, he thinks the Vita still have a bit of life

So the time has come for publishers to move on from the old generation of consoles, the main man at NIS, thinks that handhelds in the Western World will still last two to three more years, before all we will see left is our home based consoles and mobile phones.

Speaking with MCV UK at gamescom, Yamashita said, "Talking about the handheld devices in the West, PlayStation Vita and 3DS will fade out in the next two to three years."

Because of the focus on consoles for big games, he thinks there's still a chance for smaller publishers to succeed on the handhelds. "I bet you that the small publishers can benefit without having strong competition if they continue to publish games for Vita and 3DS," he added.
So do you agree with him, or do you think the lifespan left for dedicated handhelds will even be much shorter then he thinks so?
