After all these years, and growing up with Windows 3.1, I have seen an entire evolution of computers and software. Touch screens and large resolutions were a pipe dream just 15 years ago. Now it's the norm. Going from a Packard Bell (yes, before HP) that couldn't run 3D Ultra Mini...

Nintendo Reportedly Combining Console And Handheld Hardware Divisions

Posted on Wednesday, January 16 @ 07:46:52 PST by Alex_Osborn

Ever since Nintendo released the GameBoy, the company has operated almost like two separate entities, one in the console space and the other in the realm of handhelds. According to a report from Nikkei, that will be changing very soon, as the Big N is planning to restructure, bringing together its console and handheld hardware divisions.

A translation of the report explains:

In an effort to create more innovative and attractive products, Nintendo Co. will combine the development segments for its home video game consoles and handheld game devices.

The decision comes on the heels of recent releases of the Nintendo 3DS portable system in February 2011 and the Wii U home console last month. With more people using their smartphones and tablets for entertainment via the Internet, including games and videos, Nintendo aims to come up with next-generation game systems that will turn heads.

The restructuring will allegedly take place in February, and will combine 130 employees from Nintendo's console division with 150 from its handheld branch to form a single, unified development team. "The two teams will eventually be integrated and the segment will be organized by function, such as circuits, mechanisms and design," the report adds.

What do you think of this supposed move by Nintendo? Does this mean we might see more unity between the 3DS and Wii U? Share your thoughts in the comments below.
