The mobility of a handheld is now added to the power of a home gaming system to enable unprecedented new video game play styles.

They looks neat! However, I won't buy it until it is a 3rd party fully support. I know a few 3rd party is now support it but I said a "few" is not a good enough. A lacking of fully support is need first.
