No matter how much people want to dismiss gaming on smartphones, they have succeeded where portable gaming in the past has failed: they sell very cheap games, sometimes free, and provide casual quick gaming experiences that captivate hardcore and gaming noobs. In short, they have taken initiative and grabbed some of the gaming market and grown it.
That means portables need to find a way to keep their traditional market and somehow provide an experience that will attract others, beyond what smartphones do.
In other words: Sony has learned from past mistakes, and Nintendo hasn’t.
