Jack Tretton defends Vita: Sales are “acceptable” so far
Jack Tretton has come out in defense of the Vita by saying that he finds the current sales of the embattled portable, “acceptable”. Now earlier we reported that Sony was having a tough time finding proper third-party support for the system, and it’s something they’re trying to rectify, so when you compare that with Tretton’s optimism, something feels missing.
“In this industry, you can’t get too high or too low, because it moves very quickly,” says Tretton. “I think there’s an acceptable number – and [the number] we’ve sold: That’s acceptable. If it was triple that, I’d be happier. If it was one-third, I’d be disappointed,” he told GI.Biz.
He also compared Vita’s situation to that of the PS3 and mentioned that it’s possible to bounce back.
“Anything with great rewards is going to come with great challenges. We felt if the tech was there, and the game support was there, then the audience would be there. … I feel much better about it now than I did four months ago.”
