The lights are on
Nintendo's creative visionary says that the powerful Sony handheld isn't "a very strong product."
While Miyamoto isn't known weighing in on his competitors, he definitely seems to have a low opinion of the Vita in a new interview with EDGE magazine.
When asked his opinion of the Vita, he commented, "It's obviously a very high-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."
He added, "But I can't really say."
Mr. Miyamoto, I think you just did.
However, he also acknowledged Nintendo's own mistakes in the launch of its 3DS handheld. Miyamoto said, "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."

Y'know, I have to agree with him all in all...all handheld systems at launch are complete crap. Heck, all console systems at launch are usually crap. The real test comes from what they do with the system once they're used to it, and whether they'll use their system to make good games that people want, or to have it be...well...crap.
Let em have it Miyamoto! I have to agree though, the software just isn't there. I would like to see the system pull it off like the 3DS did though, cause I need more reasons that Uncharted before I buy one.
He was asked and he answered it with his honest opinion. Easy to critize when no one cares about your opinion.
