US Portable Games Explosion

There are lies, darn lies, and forecasts. Regardless, The Yankee Group is projecting today that the US portable games business could reach $2.9 billion by 2009. That means if Nintendo keeps doing what they’ve done so well, they’ll make a lot of money. It also means the competition will be even fiercer to get a piece of that tasty pie.

Sony is having troubles with the PSP, but you gotta believe they’re not even close to throwing in the towel just yet. And will Microsoft ever enter the handheld frey? We’ll have to what and see but expect big things for the DS and Gameboy systems in the coming years.
