Sigh... I just want to see some next-gen footage already. Hell, last gen we had games like Dark Sector that were shown years before the console it came out on was even unveiled.
All you can find now are tech demos and those are mostly worthless.
They are putting way too much into Vita to be able to put out another console along with launch games in 2013. They have to make money at some point.
I understand your logic here but didn't they basically do the same thing with the PSP and PS3?
Any benefits would be outweighed by the drawbacks IMO.
