LOS ANGELES -- If E3 2012 is The Year of the Second Screen, then what does that make Sony, a company that seems to have one too many solutions to a single problem? The PlayStation Vita and the PlayStation 3 form a perfect hardware tandem, theoretically: with as many inputs as a Wii U tablet and a screen just an inch smaller, the Vita could the PS3's best friend.
And yet, less than six months after the Vita's U.S. debut, Sony's E3 press conference seemed to do precious little to expand the Vita to new landscapes of opportunity. It's a game system. Yet, where are the other apps, the remote wireless play capabilities, the second-screen possibilities for Blu-rays?
