Sony have revealed that they expect the upcoming PlayStation Vita to be a 5 – 10 Year Platform.
In a conversation with GameTrailers, Sony Computer Entertainment America’s senior vice president of PlayStation brand marketing Guy Longworth has said he is bullish about the prospects of the PlayStation Vita ahead of it’s European launch on February 22nd.
“If you listen to gamers, if you listen to the response people have had, [from people] who’ve actually got their hands on this thing, it’s just been a tremendous response, way ahead of our expectations actually, And also our customers and our third parties are very excited by this. We see this as a five to ten year platform, so we’ll judge the success of this in 12, 24, 36 months. We expect to have a great launch, but it’s really in 12 or 24 months we’ll know how successful it has been.”
He also pointed out that Sony’s major first party studios such as Sony Santa Monica (God of War), Guerrilla (Killzone), Naughty Dog (Uncharted) and Media Molecule (LittleBigPlanet) will all support the Vita at some point down the line.
