They don't need to reinvent the wheel, they just need to use common sense. Nintendo already has killer cheap hardware so they are fine, but Sony needs to be the Boss that they are and jump into some of that Apple pie. They already have a head start when it comes to hardcore games. They need to release hardware out as often as Apple does. It's like they aren't even trying?!

i do not see how anyone could say they are not trying..lol

Remember one of the main Sony's pillar's is the mobile section an they want to sell games to as many people as they can. The Playstation Suite is one such way to accomplish this task.Also the Playstation Suite will get 1st party Sony in house development studios that are making games for the Playstation Suite. With the Investment into the mobile handhelds for games the PSVita is not the only game handhelds Sony is supporting.
