Maybe they didn't say that, but that's sure as anything what I heard.
WTR Pearl screens, I don't know who-gone-and-done what, I'm just saying Sony need to offer us something. Cool factor alone just doesn't cut it any more - besides Apple's got game already.

And I fully agree what SensualPoet says here in his post:

And any executive leading a division whose mandate is to "wait and see" without having a clear vision of where the market will be in six months time (and a plan B if that is wrong), ought not be in charge. Alas, you may well have identified the real problem at Sony.
