In the dawn of a new era (PS4 vs Xbox One) I have wonder about this question. I may be like other gamers out there who has a lot of game downloads. I also first experienced the usage of downloading content like TV shows (the anime Moonphase which costs $1.99 per episode) and even though PS3 was not any longer PS2 compatible, it did have PSone downloads and could run PSone games off disc driver. For a brief time I ould download comic books for my PSP. I even had an adaptor tha allowed me to archive my memory cards onto the PS3. Nice. I recently had a little family crisis wher my idiot brother threw out all of my PS3 games while I was in the hospital. Okay, so the PS3 and computer were stolen, big deal! I originally purchased the 40 GB PS3 which died and Sony gave me another 40 GB model which failed. By the time the Sony warranty failed, Kmart was nice enough to give me a 160 GB slim model. Sweet. Sure, they aren't tablets. They need to be hooked up to a TV set. They are proprietary software and OSes. I wonder who many people like me waste their computing power on websurfing. Sheesh!
