In the following video, The Motley Fool's Alison Southwick chats with Fool.com contributor Travis Hoium about Sony's upcoming new PlayStation 4 gaming system. While there is a lot of consumer excitement about Sony's mysterious new console, Travis tells us that gaming consoles on the whole may be losing relevance, and that rather than facing the traditional competition, Sony will now have to go up against the likes of Apple and Microsoft , as consumer spending moves increasingly toward mobile in the gaming world.

There's no doubt that Apple is at the center of technology's largest revolution ever and that longtime shareholders have been handsomely rewarded, with more than 1,000% gains. However, after the company's recent backslide, there is a debate raging as to whether Apple remains a buy. The Motley Fool's senior technology analyst and managing bureau chief, Eric Bleeker, is prepared to fill you in on both reasons to buy and reasons to sell Apple and what opportunities are left for the company (and your portfolio) going forward.
