psp. We were promised something that could do everything, and it just failed spectacularly. The way sony talked about it, it would make the iphone look rubbish. A few really good games but nothing compared to what we were promised. Might sell mine tbh, havent used it in donkeys years.

NDS is more fun than PSP but getting bored of that too. Could sell both.

Lol. I'd forgotten about HD DVD. I'd probably put Sony ATRAC in the list too.

3D is a fail. I wish they'd stop making every film possible in 3D, thus making it crapper than it could be and then, as if that's not bad enough, charging you a boat load more money to see the damn thing!

The only thing that will be worse is the Nintendo 3DS.

WTF.

If you want a screen got for the Nano/Classic/iPod Touch/iPhone.

Ahh I completely forgot about HD DVDS

bluray is doing well and the picture is definitely better than DVD. Where is the failure?

Though I don't know anyone with actual blu ray players, most ppl have ps3s
