Love them or loathe them, smartphones are revolutionising the way people play games on the go. While touchscreen devices are still a long way from providing the same level of immersion and precision offered by dedicated games consoles like the Nintendo 3DS, the fact that they are always in your pocket and always connected means they make for surprisingly effective entertainment platforms.
With the sector growing all the time, you might assume that Nintendo will create its own smartphone eventually — rumours have been floating around for years, after all. Tech site T3 has come up with its own vision of what a Nintendo smartphone would look like, and has even guessed at its fearsome specifications.
Would you be willing to support such a venture if Nintendo did take the smartphone route? Or do you think the company will stick with what it knows best: pure gaming experiences on hardware designed around interactive entertainment? Share your thoughts below.
