    It seems Sony is taking a less hardware focused approach from the interview. It sounds like a good approach while Nintendo is trying to attract the "hardcore" player, Sony is doing the opposite. I hope I can see a more balanced market where you can find different kinds of genres in different platforms

    This doesn't answer the important questions though:
    Will it be able to play TV shows, watch movies, and toast my sandwiches simultaneously?

    They may want to see more than just FPS/realistic/etc games on it, but they surely won't stop a developer from making such a game if there's a large influx of them already set.

    If the PS3 and its early models is to take into reference, the console can do the first two easily (Bluray, Netflix, etc) and the latter will be made possible via heat generated by the console and PSU. :creep:

    More on-topic though, this is a typical PR stunt to appease the idiot masses. The PlayStation brand was never all about "FPS'es and realistic graphics", the PS3 had a slew of celshaded or otherwise "unrealistic from a graphics standpoint" games, it's just that its vocal haters carefully omitted mentioning them in their silly cursades.

    So in other words, Nintendo and Sony have switched places?

    I think it's more like Nintendo was too focused in the casual player with the Wii and DS while Sony was too focused in the hardcore player with the PS3 and PSP. They both realized that these approaches kind of limited their market so they are trying to find some sort of balance to attract both the hardcore and casual market. The 3DS had this exact idea in mind and many hardcore players were conviced to buy a 3DS instead of a Vita/PSP while convincing the casual player to buy a 3DS instead of the DS.
