The Nintendo 3DS to be the most successful device of 2011?

Nintendo 3DS Success

According to EEDAR (Electronic Entertainment Design and Research), the new Nintendo handheld will be the most important entertainment product of 2011.

EEDAR analyst Jesse Divnich told the American press the following statement: “everything that Nintendo has made for the last 20 years has been a success, ¬†excepting the Virtual Boy fiasco. You have to really see it [the Nintendo 3DS] to believe¬†it and that could be a problem for Nintendo but they certainly have the correct tools and strategies to prove the potential of the Nintendo 3DS to their customers.

He added: “the only thing that I don’t agree with is that the sales of the Wii and the DS have declined as a consequence to the success of the iPad and the iPhone”(…) The Nintendo 3DS has been 6 years in the market so sales would have declined regardless of the iPhone. I think that the 3DS will be sold out the first day and it will definitely be the most successful product of 2011

What do you think? Who will be the winner in the predictable “iPhone 5 vs Nintendo 3DS vs PSP2” comparative battles?
