Lol best to ignore IGN, they spout out rubbish often.
They posted an Article a couple of days ago saying the 3DS Vs VITA battle is a joke and will be over before it's started.
History has shown however, that the most powerful console usually loses the war. With the exception of the SNES.
PS1 beat N64, PS2 beat GCN, DC and Xbox, Wii beat 360/PS3, DS beat PSP. All of them less powerful than their competitors.
