i do have different standards for biting a successful idea and biting a failed idea. Different standards for different situations, not groups. Sony made the first dual analog controller. Everyone stole it. Sony started the dvd/blueray media format in games. Microsoft copied that. These are all successful ideas.
Sony created remote play with the psp, for use with ps1 games and lair. Sony later supported remote play with vita, for use with 2-3 HD remasters. Remote play on ps3 is a failed implementation of a great concept. Therefore I don't give sony credit for Wii U's perfect implementation of this concept.
If the Eyetoy was a failure Sony wouldn't have invested into three iterations of it. Think first.
