SCEE’s Jim Ryan had a lot to say about the PS Vita. He said in spite of the functions the Vita does, the ultimate goal of the handheld is just to play games. “The core principle is to provide the best portable gaming experience possible. It’s as simple as that,” he said in the latest issue of EDGE.
“Where it ends up is going to be hard to tell at this stage but it’s of considerable interest to us,” he said. “To the extent that PSP targeted the core gamer who was after a good gaming experience, the philosophy is basically the same,” he said.
“But I think the nature of [Vita] allows us to provide a differentiated gaming experience in a manner that the design of PSP simply did not allow.”
The Vita will release this year in Japan and next year in the other markets. What do you think about the Vita, tell us in the comments section below.
