I have to disagree, portable gaming is at the highest point it's ever been and currently, the 3DS alone outsold the Xbox One AND the PS4. There's a colossal market for portable gaming; however, portable games and consoles are always getting shafted compared to console games. Look at the Assassin's Creed series, AC 1 and 2 came out and were phenomenal games. They released a PSP version that was utter shit to play. Compared that with the Final Fantasy Dissidia games on PSP where the game was polished and is (IMO) the best game to come out onto the PSP.
The Vita's release a disaster because all of the games released at launch were also trash projects because the developers produced some seriously shitty and buggy games. Where are the "pokemon", "megaman battle network", and "monster hunter" games on the Vita? Monster Hunter even made the jump to the DS for crying out loud. Developers and publishers need to take a real look at the community and realize that portable gaming is going to continue growing now that gamers are being accepted by society at large and there's a huge market for portable gaming; however, putting a game on a portable console does not mean it should be shitty, buggy and incomplete.

This. Nintendo gets it. Portable games for a portable system; not console wannabee games. Long Live Nintendo!
