In the video, SCEA marketing suit John Koller claims that Sony had much bigger ambitions for PS Vita than simply creating a "PSP2", and so it banned discussion of alternative mobile devices and portable gaming platforms.

“We left all that in the past,” Koller revealed. “[Vita] is kind of superseding the market with an entertainment experience.”

The documentary is obviously a promotional piece, but it's not offensively so. And if you're interested in Sony's new platform, it's definitely worth watching and learning about how the system came together.
