PS Vita "Isn't Currently A Strong Product"


Nintendo legend Shigeru Miyamoto has said that Sony’s latest handheld, the PlayStation Vita is currently not a strong product.

He suggested that the current crop of games wasn’t good enough to match the strength of the hardware in place. Speaking to Edge he stated the following:

“It’s obviously a very hi-spec machine, and you can do lots of things with it, but I don’t really see the combination of software and hardware that really makes a very strong product, When we launched the 3DS hardware we didn’t have Super Mario 3D Land, we didn’t have Mario Kart 7, we didn’t have Kid Icarus: Uprising,”

“We were striving to have all of these ready for the launch, but we weren’t able to deliver them at that time. We were kind of hoping that people would, nevertheless, buy into the product, find 3DS hardware promising, but looking back we have to say we realise the key software was missing when we launched the hardware.”
