I wonder if Nintendo could create a device that runs as a console connected to your TV, and has a detachable DS-like device that you can take on the go. Way i see it, the handheld is the brains of the device, and the console is the muscle. When connected they make the home console device that you play your Mario's/Zelda's/Kart's, and when separate you have a handheld that you play the same games on, just a smaller screen and less resolution. Think about it, Nintendo combined the dev teams for the handheld and console devisions for the first time, Iwata and Myamoto are talking about having 'brothers in a family of systems' and one single platform to have multiple devices associated with. Nintendo would no longer be struggling to support and market two different devices, and would have less games shortages due to lack of 3rd party support because all their AAA development is on one operating system. If you look at it by sales, 50 million folks bought the 3DS, throw another 10 million for the Wii U, simply put, 60 million or so people will buy nintendo hardware no matter how badly marketed it is or how badly named it is or how out of touch Nintendo is with the core gammer fan-base that left after SNES. If you happen to be a electronics expert or a game developer let me know if a device like this is something that can be made with today or 2016's technology for an affordable price. i could be completely clueless.
