Thank you but no thank you.

My phone can't even replace my handheld consoles so it has no chance of replacing my dedicated gaming consoles.

my phone is for making phone calls and sending text message, with the occasional internet browsing and tethering to other devices, nothing more... nothing less

so, no it will not...

What a waste of money, why not spend it on something more worthwhile like making longer life batteries for phones?

The only way my phone could replace my console is if gaikai work awsome with it.

I'd like for the Vita to be like this. The all-in-one device. Have a game, decide I want to go somewhere, take it with me, then come home and dock it into a PS4, keep playing with better visuals.

As for my phone? Pass. Developers can't handle it and always want new tech. See crappy games that can't use a 3 month old phone because it "doesn't have enough power" really? And don't really need texts and calls interrupting my game either.
