Miyamoto says the PS Vita needs more of the right games
Shigeru Miyamoto has been musing on the PS Vita and comparing its progress to Nintendo's experiences with the 3DS.
In a recent interview he spoke of his admiration of the technical capabilities of Sony's new handheld but said that it needs the right games to back that up and the software lineup isn't there yet.
The Mario and Zelda creator began, "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."
Miyamoto-san continued, "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."
The PS Vita's lineup will gain more potential system-sellers with Gravity Rush and Resistance: Burning Skies out next month and interesting titles like Phantasy Star Online 2 and a Call Of Duty in the pipeline too.
