Do you think in a couple years we will look back at all this and laugh?

I was one of the guys who laughed at the Ps3 when it came out. Since then, I've learned to keep my mouth shut and just let things play out.

The list of gaming related subjects I bashed in the past is quite long.

Except, the PS3 is part of why Sony is doing so bad financially. I don't think they have what it takes to save it like the PS3.

Sure. But it will be kinda nervous laughter, as we huddle in our bunkers while nukes rain down upon us.

Nope. Handheld market is vastly different than the console market.

Also, there really is no "looking back at the PS3 and laughing", because without the massive price drop, the PS3 almost killed itself. That's why the 360 is so much more popular now in the west, when the PS2 used to be king, and it's why for "next gen", everyone who is willing to buy a home console have pretty much said they're going with the xbox no doubt, but the PS4 is incredibly iffy.

Vita is competing with tablets, the 3DS, and smartphones. If it survives and manages to build a decent library, it'll be nice, but it won't be everyone looking back and saying "lol hey remember when everyone said the vita was dead??", itll be more of "Never buying a sony handheld at launch again. Remember how terribly they handled the Vita for the first <x amount> years?"

The same kind of laughter as what happens now when people realize that Sony is still in the red on the PS3?

Maybe, except it will probably be a lot more wistful.

I got a PSP on launch day and this is how I felt when coming to this game.

This life is just a game we play, that we can never win.
But don't give up, no don't give up.
