Did you miss the Vita at E3? Sony hears you
I’m pulling for the PlayStation Vita, not gonna lie. A portable system with a touchscreen on the back and fantastic graphics? Plus an online store with games cheaper than retail? There could be amazing things in the Vita’s future, but unless one of you guys suddenly came across a working crystal ball, that future is still pretty hazy.
Sony’s E3 conference undoubtedly lacked any really hard-hitting Vita software, but at least they’re owning up to that fact. In a recent interview with Patrick Klepek of Giant Bomb, Shuhei Yoshida (head of worldwide studios for PlayStation) said “I think that’s our fault to not be able to meet expectations [...] Our marketing department said we’re going to make it short and sweet, and we were really selective in terms of what to show.” At least they were trying to make things less painful for the people at E3.
Despite a fairly barren showing, there was “a respectably wide-ranging lineup of [Vita] games” at the Sony booth according to Klepek. Maybe there’s hope for it yet.
