I agree with the article, That's just PS1.3 and 1.3.1 (Pro).
Microsoft and Nintendo tried something different, but failed to read the mood of their consumer base; Microsoft by forgetting that a console is mainly to play games and the Multimedia just on the side; Nintendo by alienating their consumer and not making clear that the tablet controller wasn't just an expensive add-on for the Wii. Sony on the other hand played it safe - too safe for my taste. We're just at the 4th evolution of the PSOne instead of really new consoles in my opinion.
