That sounds much better.I imagine that the core target audience for the Generation I Virtual Console releases are existing 3DS-owning Pokémon fans who are either older and want to feel nostalgic or younger and curious to see where it all began. The only aspect of their release that strikes me as an attempt at appealing to non-current owners are the Japanese and European 2DS bundles; by using the cheapest hardware variant in a specified bundle to significantly lower the cost of entry.
You misunderstand. I'm not suggesting that the NX will be a single unit like a hybrid but rather, there will be entirely separate hardware models that simply run on the same architecture; with a relationship similar to the iPhone and iPad. So gamers could still choose to purchase a handheld or home console, but the two would share a closer relationship than their predecessors, such as the same Virtual Console library or even some NX games.
If any of Nintendo's consoles need to be replaced, it's the Nintendo 3DS. It's technology was old when it launched five years ago and it's ancient by today's standards.
Anyway, I hope the 3DS stays around for as long as possible, cause I personally like it. And we also got the New 3DS too.
