I have had Sony since the original Playstation before it was PSX or PSOne, and have had great experiences with all the generations. So I don't know what you are talking about?
You didn't think they dropped the ball?
The PS1 was great. I was poor, but my cousin had it and I was a kid who had access to a Japanese Einhander, which I got remember it from the demo if you remember demo disc (sooo expensive!). I cheated in FFT, we had Chocobo Racing, not Mario Kart, and Crash Bandicoot is still an amazing action adventure game, 3 especially.

PS2, we all know about FFX, MGS, GOW and KH2, as well as some series you never heard, and you probably know a few gems too. Worst console ever, best games. I have 3 semi dead ones, and I never abuse my hardware, the slim was awful, but I just got another one. I liked it that much.

Then this era:

Got a PSP, hacked it immediately and set to play it. Not many games. I didn't even pirate on it much even when I had the ability to, just played gameboy games and other such games that were from a better era. Some good games like KH, Disgaea (PS2 port, I love you PS2) and Macross, but not that many. Played more emulators than PSP games, played more ports than PSP games, and well, thats my experience.

PS3, too expensive, no games, and I have a semi broken PS3 sitting here and the homebrew scene exploded on it. I still don't care because I don't like the console or the games. Not even worth pirating, yes. Thats how I feel. It came out without rumble, they wanted you to update all your stuff, and bluray sucks. They are gonna drop the ball and the store isn't even online. Know the Thursday PSN updates? I always made fun of the people waiting for anything good, since I had access to all my PS1 discs that I kept, and converted myself.

Thats what I'm talking about. Sony is a horrible company and won't get my money. They used to make the best controller, now that it has rumble again its good, because they refused to settle and later lost. The 360 has stepped in, it has a huge failure problem just like the PS2, as many good games, and the best controller of this era. I hope you know what I'm talking about.

cons:
very expensive for whats in it
not a very big dev community(I think)
last gen hardware, not bad for it being a phone but will have a detrimental effect for it running games.
there are much better alternatives.

Someone else mentioned getting a PSP as well if you want to play games on the go, I agree. Phones aren't meant to be games consoles as well imo.
I think if I am not mistaken, the performance numbers of the Adreno 205 and Qualcomm is pretty darn good. At least all the Snapdragon vs OMAP vs Qualcomms vs Tegra2 articles I saw they all had their pluses and minuses.

I went with the Tegra2 for the dual-core and inherit GPU capabilities. I don't think the performance level though differs too much on the single-thread applications properly handled by developers.
