Who's to say that users don't learn? The lesson from past years is "enjoy while it lasts".
So if we are looking at a situation where dedicated gaming handhelds are apparently in a battle with smartphones and hardcore gamers need to sell the current machines (3DS, Vita) as much as possible to stop Apple and others, then maybe now is the time that Sony plays the role of the wounded soldier on the battlefield who tells his buddy Nintendo to leave him behind, because otherwise they will both die.
And what interest would Sony have in this ?
- more profits for Nintendo = more resources to fuel console war
- more sales of dedicated Nintendo handheld = less sales of Sony smartphones and sony software on android market
Of course there's also a question of how attractive would 3DS as only handheld be to core gamer to win him over tablets/smartphones
