Just a quick note with a prediction: Sony's Playstation Portable will not be anything special, from the perspective of the history of video games.
I've had a hunch about it all along. I was compelled to spell it out (just for future reference) when I read this quote in a BBC news article: "It is only so often that an iconic gadget comes along. The iPod is one of them and this is the next one," said Jason Jenkins, deputy editor of T3 gadget magazine.
No way! The iPod is an iconic gadget, the original Gameboy was an iconic gadget, but this thing just isn't. Look at its nothingy design. That's not the only reason I don't think it's a big deal, but I'm not aiming to rant here, I just want to record the note.
