Nintendo isn’t looking at phones

Will always lead with games
With Sony and Microsoft now dipping their toes even farther into the smartphone and portable gaming device arena in their own way, one company that apparently has no interest in getting into the phone business is Nintendo. With all of the Android devices and iPhone now being coming more gaming oriented, one would only think that Nintendo has looked at the possibility of doing a smartphone/gaming device of some sort.

Apparently, Nintendo has no intention of doing a smartphone/gaming device, according to Nintendo President Reggie Fils-Aime. “Our handhelds will always lead with games and I don’t think a smartphone vendor is going to add a parallax screen in their devices. The content we deliver will be unique to the platform and we are going to add more and more to fill out the experience.”

Nintendo believes that they will continue to have an advantage over their smartphone/gaming device competitors because they have content that draws people to their platform. With the 3DS set for release on February 26th in Japan and a March launch sometime in North America, the company will be put to the test.
