It's not going to happen unless something drastic happens to Nintendo, so don't hold your breath.

Something dramatic is happening. Look at their stocks YTD.

I am still well aware of everything. Ultimately, they make a profit on the hardware they sell, and to cut that would cut a huge amount of revenue. It's in their vested interest to march their mobile devices into the ground, regardless of the proliferation of phone gaming.

Let's not forget, they're a Japanese company, and in their eyes, cell phone gaming has existed as a nonthreat for a long time. The short term gain, would result in a long term decline of their brand, period. And it's in their best interest to delay that as long as possible. Since the 3DS price drop, sales have been up dramatically.

Hold your breath if you want, but I'll hop the cubicle wall and revive you with smelling salts later.

EA games makes more then Nintendo, do they have hardware? Nintendo will ether start producing games fro other platforms but keep the best for its hardware or will continue on its current path to bankruptcy.

Agreed. Who said anything about them having to stop making hardware? Port the games that people want for their mobile devices and it's win-win! No one said they had to stop making the DS. But it's clear that more and more people prefer their gaming on their multi-use mobile devices. I know I prefer carrying one iPhone versus a hand-held game console, iPod and phone separate.
