To be honest I am shock Nintendo and Sony haven't. They both have got gaming down which is fine but everything now a days is about doing a lot more. Its not enough to just have a phone, its not enough to just have an MP3 player.

Sony do support smartphones last time I check, Xperia play and not to mention 2 new android tablet thats PlayStation-certified.

Sure they don't got a phone OS that support PSN but they do support smartphones more than Nintendo the last time I check.
