This will be clarified more by next year since we still don't know much about the Wii U.

But from what we've seen, Sony can whip something up to provide us with a very similar experience. They can even use it as a selling point. The Vita is portable, you can hook it up to the PS3 to play or you can stream them like you could in PSP, it has a touch screen (albeit smaller compared to Wii U's controller), and perhaps even more powerful.

I'm not trying to bash Nintendo. I think it's just bad timing. I was really excited for it but then when I thought about it, I kinda realized how it can be done with the Vita (minus some features here and there; I'm not sure if Vita has a camera).

Lets have a civilized discussion here. I'm really sick of any type of fanboy. Fanboys are really dumb. Why would anyone side with a console manufacturer?

They could, But you should expect PS4 within 3 years.

Sony IS working on it confirmed.

I don't think they will bother, but I can see a similar experience on PS4.

Possibly. Vita does have a camera, by the way.

The Vita has two cameras and no, the Vita can't do the main thing the Wii U can do...which is stream content from console to the portable controller. The PSP can do it with some PS3 games and PS1 games, but the lag is horrible.

Except with that you have to buy a Vita and a PS3 (if you don't already have one or the other) which would be $500-$550, while the Wii U will have one price that comes with a controller

I never mentioned PS4 because it can still be done with a PS3.

So far we've seen Sony announce Cloud support where you need two SKUs of the same game to transfer content.

Has it been confirmed that Vita can stream from the PS3?

@ kamikaze - How do you know Sony isn't going to improve it with Vita? It won't be 100% as reliable as Wii U's but it can still be done.

@ ohh42 - We don't know how much the Wii U will cost. It will sure be pricey. Sony can drop the price of the PS3 next year especially if they plan to reveal PS4 (which isn't necessary).
