Japanese wireless carrier NTT DoCoMo has let it slip that it has been discussing with various “videogame makers” to bring 3G connectivity to their next-generation handheld platforms. Both the Nintendo DS and Playstation Portable introduced WiFi connectivity to the handheld gaming market when they launched. With the emergence of smartphones and constant connectivity it is only fitting that we see a similar upgrade in the handheld gaming market.
Ryuji Yamada, president of NTT DoCoMo, did not provide any specifics as to what companies they were having discussions with, however Nintendo has already stated that they are looking into discussions with cellular carriers while Sony has been rumored to be already developing the PSP2 which remains unannounced.
