Console manufacturers are losing their flipping minds and bank accounts to the developing trend of mobile gaming.

So, tell me why Sony had to turn to HTC? When they have their own line of mobile hardware portable game systems and Android Smartphones. No knock on HTC as they are a very capable manufacturer of high quality hardware.
