The handheld digital market is on the rise
People dig handheld gaming, but one of the more annoying aspects if you're not playing games on your phone is carrying around a bunch of small game cards. The iPhone allows gamers to enjoy smaller titles like Jetpack Joyride, Tiny Towers, and Superbrothers: Sword and Sworcery EP. Now, we've been seeing actual handheld gaming devices embracing this digital download model, but still offering experiences that are bigger than a lot of what you'll find on your iOS or Android devices.
The 3DS provides gamers with an eShop filled with pleasant titles like Mutant Mudds, Mighty Switch Force, and Pushmo. The Vita already features downloadable versions of retail games, and that's awesome, because it allows gamers to have major content without the risk of losing that precious game card. Sony needs to continue to support digital content and take a page from the eShop's book, delivering more exclusive handheld downloads. Because Vita owners won't be playing Escape Plan forever.
