    PSP Phone will bomb worse than the PSP Go, which was a feat in itself.

    I think that it might could have worked had they designed a phone with gaming capabilities, instead of the tried-and-failed design of a gaming handheld with phone capabilities...

    I can't even take this question seriously. Even more so after the rumor that there was speculation Apple was interested in buying out Sony - not that it is true or that it would even happen, but if analysts are trying to predict such a far fetched idea should tell you something about Apple's position in the market right now.

    What is true is that Nintendo's president made a statement recently saying Apple is more of a threat to them now than Sony or Microsoft - and this was stated after the intial prototype of the Playstation Phone had already been out.

    So if anything the only competition I see will be from the 3DS.

    Doing nothing of importance.

    Yeah, I'll agree with that. I'm not a fanboy either, but I just have a hard time seeing anything beat out such a successful platform, especially with better and more powerful iterations coming out pretty much every year.

    Games & phones don't go. The ability to have games on your phone is one thing, but no one wants to buy a gaming device with a phone attached.

    Agreed. I love having my touch and stuff and some of the games are fantastic, but it still doesn't replace my PSP or DS.
