I'd say Wii and DS are both equally incomparable to the 3DS in terms of 3rd party commitments. Neither had near this level of support at this point in their cycles, and let's face it, Wii never managed this level of support period.ShockingAlberto said:It is exactly how the Wii went, though.
The factors that lead to the DS exploding will never be repeated again, the handheld market will not grow beyond that any time soon. It is entirely likely the 3DS will be the first Nintendo handheld to not be a third party
cum dumpstersource of easy income.
I don't see any real reason why 3DS would turn out like Wii though, much less that being the most likely outcome. It's already getting the sort of games Wii should have anyway (Kingdom Hearts, Resident Evil, Metal Gear, Street Fighter, etc).
