Sony should’ve talked about Vita at E3 more, says Yoshida

Friday, 22nd June 2012 14:56 GMT By Stephany Nunneley

Sony Worldwide Studio boss Shuhei Yoshida has admitted the firms should have shown more Vita games during its E3 2012 presentation.

Speaking with Develop, Yoshida said he received a lot of tweets from the public complaining that “there weren’t many PS Vita games being talked about.”

“In retrospect, we should’ve spent more time showing and talking about our PS Vita titles,” he said. “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 said he hoped the journalists on show floor provided enough information on the games available.

    Good to see Sony continue to acknowledge this, but you have to wonder why they didn’t show more of Vita. Everyone was expecting a big Vita showing for E3. Puzzling how Sony seemed to miss that.

    Yep, too little too late, sold mine, 3ds XL all the way baby!

    Sony could end up squandering one of the best gadgets ever at the rate they are releasing games!

    Only 2 “Boom” games werent enought. Not everyone is desesperated for more AC or COD. Sony needed something else big, like GTA, RE or MH… And no news for the moment.

    Maybe its not his fault, but they really need more contracts for the big third party games.

    I saw the list and except for Little Kings Story and Soul Sacrifice i can’t say i really care much for it. I want a great JRPG for it, i want some cool third person action shooters/adventures for it. I really hope the Vita will get some great games eventually…cause the thing is full of potential. Gravity Rush, nice game…more like those please.

    Hopefully, they will correct their mistakes at gamescom, otherwise vita will remain underperforming rest of the year.
