No way in hell will they be able to do it for a decade, Microsoft and Sony would stomp nintendo into the ground with new developments so damn quick. We may love nintendo but if it runs slower than other console i doubt we'd buy it.
Just like how the Vita stomped down the 3DS to the ground right?
Or even just like how Sony and Microsoft are stomping down Nintendo so they have bad sales, despite the Nintendo Switch already selling over 14 million units.
Whatever Sony and Microsoft do, they will not be able to compete with the Switch’s selling point, portability. At least for the next couple of years, there isn’t even a handheld capable of being more powerful within such a small form, and a good price.
Nah, PS4 and Switch have been selling gangbusters through 2017, and that isn’t going to stop. They compete in 2 completely markets and they will coexist.
As for the next 7-10 years thing. Yeah, probably! The 3DS is actually turning 7 years this February. Still had great third party support, great games, and there are still a couple of things coming down the line
