“Having been in the portable space for quite a while, I think it’s an interesting move but one I’d like to see where they go from a demographic standpoint. Eight and nine year-olds playing 3D is a little bit of a stretch given where some of our research is right now.”

Koller went on to assert that Sony’s 3D focus remains fixed on PS3.
