Sony thinks Wii U isn’t powerful enough
VP of Sony thinks Vita has the edge.
The console war heads into the age of touch-screens, and it’s inevitable that competition between the big three will heat up.
“Because we have the Vita, I think we can do a lot of special things. And remember, that Wii U tablet doesn’t have a processor in it, so it’s got to be fuelled by that box sitting under your TV”, said the VP.
Rhode added that what Sony is bringing to the Vita is “pretty special”, promising that we can expect to 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.”
“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.”
So looks like Sony are backing their PS Vita to compete with the Wii U’s tablet, and with Microsoft recently announcing the SmartGlass application and their Surface tablet, things are about to heat up in the hardware race.
