SCE UK boss Fergal Gara has said the best is yet to come with Vita, and the holidays should prove to be a boon for the handheld, what with all the games coming out during the period.

Speaking MCV, Gara said: “We would love it to be selling more and we intend to make it sell more and help it sell a lot more. The feedback from many consumers who’ve got their hands on it is positive – so that’s a very good start.

“The key thing for the rest of the year is the key software drive for the console so as we look towards September, LittleBigPlanet, that really is taking the concept on another level because of the Vita functionality,” he said. “And of course the other key big third party IPs – Call of Duty, FIFA, Assassin’s Creed – will do tremendous things for the Vita.

“So it’s our job now to take that strength of software and give people more reasons to buy.”

Gara admitted Sony hasn’t quite “hit the spot with the killer software just yet,” but he has “every reason” to think it will happen in the next few months, and Sony will be working alongside the likes of Activision and Ubisoft to ensure there’s a reason the consumer will wish to add Vita to their collection.
