“Casual gaming growth has been driven over the last three years by the Nintendo DS platform. Demand has peaked in Japan, and we believe is currently peaking overseas. Compounded by a less robust retail environment, we expect to see a decline in the handheld sector…” – Hiroshi Kamide at KBC Securities Japan

I am not too surprised. The DS has been selling like crazy, it was going to get to a point where it just saturated the market. Not saying it is going to stop selling well, just not at the top like it has been.
