The BBC get Nintendo wrong again

Link to the story in question:
http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/business-15473961

Im just irate at the heading below the picture on the right "The 3DS, a cross between a handheld and a tablet device..."

To me it seems to put the DS family in a bracket shadowing the Ipad, as well as a descendant to it so to speak. Where as if memory serves me correctly the DS came out before tablets gained any level of popularity. It's as if (like always) the BBC has no clue about Nintendo as just writes whatever fitting Nintendo into their little world. After all they could have just said 'The 3DS, a successor to their DS handheld'

I hardly see how it can be called a tablet cross over just because one of the screens is touch sensitive. To me it's like saying 'the domestic cat, a cross between wild cats and a lion.'

The BBC news is controlled by the current Government. Which right now, is the conservatives. Typical.

Bryaugh will become famous soon enough

Which means you can assume everything they say now is loosely based on fact. For instance, tablets have touch screens, too, and lions and wild cats are in the same family as domestic cats. So you see, it's almost not a lie.

so how is the 3DS part tablet at all? the DS has been out since 2004 with touch screen and nobody called that a tablet.


also, nintendo had losses because they didn't put out.
