Sony: Vita’s processor gives it an upper hand over the Wii U controller

Posted By | On 19th, Jun. 2012

Sony’s Scott Rohde has bragged that PS3-Vita connectivity has a lot more potential than Nintendo’s Wii U, because of superior tech. The Vita has its own processing unit unlike the Wii U controller which gives it an advantage.

“That Wii U tablet doesn’t have a processor in it, so it’s got to be fueled by that box sitting under your TV,” he said to GamesIndustry International.

“We can do some pretty special things that you’ll start to see on the [E3] floor this year and you’ll see more over the upcoming months about what you can do when you actually have a processor in the thing that’s in your hand as well.”

He praised the Vita and said that people who pick up the system end up enjoying it, and didn’t say anything about a price cut.

“It’s only been three months though, just three months. There are a lot of games on that machine and I think what we have to hang our hat on… Every single person that actually picks that thing up absolutely loves it. If you’re a gamer and you pick up a Vita, you’re going to have fun. And you’re going to use it over a device like this [points to an iPhone] if you really want a game.

“Look at two of the titles that are here at E3, PlayStation All-Stars and Sly 4, for example. Both available on Vita and PS3, and there’s some sort of interactivity across the board. Developers are interested in that kind of stuff,” he added.

“We have a lot of good things coming. And some of the games that we have coming out in the near future, they do cross out into the mobile space a little bit… it’s absolutely natural for games to do that. You see all the big third party publishers have been doing it for a while.”
