In addition to offering a superior gaming experience on his device, Marcus touts the $9.99 price for some of Sony's older games. And just to make sure that Josh understands what he is saying, Marcus calls him on the phone. It's all just another attempt to slow down the speed at which cellphones have become a legitimate gaming platform.
