Granted the Nintendo 3DS doesn’t have as many games as Apple’s App Store, but according to Nintendo’s vice president of sales and marketing, Scott Moffitt, Nintendo’s latest handheld console boasts superior titles. While Moffitt admits there are good games on mobile platforms, he thinks that because many of its games were well-received by video game fans and critics alike, the Nintendo 3DS is tough to combat.
“With software, as with most things, there’s a distinct difference between quantity and quality. The website 148apps.biz recently calculated that there are currently 139,000 different games actively available on the [Apple] app store. One hundred and thirty-nine thousand. Huge number. That number is way too big to wrap your head around, so I try to think about it this way. If I wanted to spend just fifteen minutes sampling each one of those games, I’d be at it non-stop for four years. That’s a ton of caffeine.
“Obviously there are good games available for mobile platforms. But the point is, the Nintendo 3DS has a record of quality that’s hard to challenge.”
“Nowhere else in portable gaming is high quality found so frequently.”
