Sony Regrets Not Talking About PS Vita at E3
Sony regrets not showing off more of the PS Vita at its E3 press conference.
Sony Worldwide Studio chief Shuhei Yoshida expressed his regret over the company's decision not to show off much of the PlayStation Vita at their recent E3 press conference.
The company was lambasted for treating the PS Vita like a stepchild, showing very few titles of the fledgling platform at the press conference, giving its owners little reason to feel confident in its future.
"In retrospect, we should’ve spent more time showing and talking about our PS Vita titles," said Yoshida in an interview with Develop. "We [had] 25 PS Vita games playable on the show floor, some of which are really great titles I’m very excited about. We could have spent more time talking about those, but we had a very clear intention this year to make the total press conference shorter, because we’re notorious for holding lengthy ones.
"I hope we accomplished that with this year’s conference, but from the perspective of people who are waiting for more information on Vita titles, we weren’t able to provide that."
Yoshida says he hopes that journalists who attended E3 paid the Sony booth some attention, because they had plenty of Vita games to showcase on the show floor—just not at the press conference.
