Also, Nintendo has always had success by toning down their battery consumption. This was the case when Sega came out with their handheld (I forget the name) that took something like 8 batteries and lasted 3 hours compared to the Gameboy that took 4 batteries and lasted 8 hours. This was mainly due to the color, backlit screen vs monochrome, non-backlit screen. "Better" is very subjective in realms such as video games systems...
