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."

I've never really been a fan of sony because of how lacking (In my opinion) the first party games felt. Sorry Kratos doesn't do it for me. The contrast between Nintendo and Sony always was the expirence the games had on me and my interests as a gamer. Nintendo has innovated constantly for the past couple decades. I've felt that they have a better grasp of game development (not marketing and economic decisions).
I love my vita, but I do agree that sony needs some damn games!!!
I hope the Vita will be successful, and there will be a vibrant market of portable games and gamers that can pick and choose from great titles with Nintendo AND Sony! Game Boy fanboys (like myself) need to embrace the PSP and Vita because they help sustain the portable gaming market. Maybe, Sony and Nintendo can sell their portables for a LOW LOW price to those gamers that will own both handhelds... That's a GREAT idea!!!
"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."
wow, he really blasted it....durp
He should do it before
screw nintendo and its childish games
If Miyamoto says it, it's biblical. *throws Vita out the window*
Coming from the same man that said he can make a game similar to Halo.
What THE!!!! I have both and the VITA is better. It is the 2ND best to PS3!!!
