Wrong. Its run of the mill PR. Nothing more, nothing less. Sony has been geeting demolished in marketshare via handhelds, theyre focusing on 3D in living rooms, and have clearly put the PSP and handheld market on the backburner.
In fact it was logical to persue that then try to topple the DS, so they started this in the living room and since their brand carries home theaters, televisions, and blu-ray players it was not only logical for thei investors but for the company in general.
Yep, I know its all PR rubbish. But, clearly the overall response is because of the 3DS and Sony's investors will inevitably ask the question of why PSP isn't going to have this as the rest of Sony is pushing 3D. So, while my comment may be a little fanboyish, the intent is the same.
