Spoken like a person who waited for the Minidisc to become the viable live recording and storage medium it should have been. Then flash recorders and PMPs woke everyone from the spell of arbitrary obstacles between them and their own files.

Sony has never recovered from the time they wasted crippling hardware innovation with in-house content protection. And they didn't even succeed, as evidenced by the spread of piracy through homebrew.

Which is a shame, because even now, their hardware can be glorious.

For people who favor immersive complexity over attractive simplicity, the Vita has to be the most perfect gaming handheld ever made. I even liked their robots. Years after Sony stopped development, a friend of mine still loves his Aibo.
