Sony still very pleased with the PS Vita
Sony has poured cold water on any suggestions that they have reduced the amount of attention they are devoting to the PS Vita.
After showing two major titles Call Of Duty and Assassin's Creed for the Vita alongside revealing YouTube support for the handheld in their E3 press conference Sony received a bit of stick for not devoting more time to their new handheld.
The boss of Sony Worldwide Studios Shuhei Yoshida promised that they are very excited about the Vita and have brought a substantial library of titles to show off at E3. He said, "We had 25 PS Vita games playable on the show floor, some of which are really great titles I'm very excited about. We could have spent more time talking about those, but we had a very clear intention this year to make the total press conference shorter, because we're notorious for holding lengthy ones."
Yoshida-san continued, "I hope we accomplished that with this year's conference which I think lasted about 80 minutes but from the perspective of people who are waiting for more information on Vita titles, we weren't able to provide that. I got lots of tweets to my account complaining that there weren't many PS Vita games being talked about. In retrospect, we should've spent more time talking about our PS Vita titles. I'm hoping that journalists are looking at the games on the show floor and getting the word out that way."
