EA : Vita has “a better chance” than 3DS
Who can predict the future of Vita better than EA? After all last 10 years they are the company who releases almost all of their games for every single console on the market. If they don’t know the formula of success than no one do. So what does the company think of the new portable gadget coming to the market ? This question was answered few days ago when EA Labels president Frank Gibeau was interviewed by CVG.
In his opinion the Vita is in much better position than the failed 3DS because Sony’s combination of innovation, technology and a strong software line-up.
“I think that part of the videogame business is tough right now because they have had some significant competition come in that was totally disruptive, and that was the smartphone,” said Gibeau.”I think Sony has got a shot because they have some really unique innovation in the control scheme, the technology and the screen. It’s got a lot of social features now so that you can actually communicate with your friends and be social. You can’t ring them up by putting the device up to your ear but in general I think they’ve got most of the capabilities that you’d find in a smart phone, with some unique capabilities that make them stand out.”
He continued on the difference between PSVita and 3DS market :
“I don’t think they’re quite in the same boat as the 3DS… the 3DS was a really interesting piece of technology but I think there was some confusion over it and the title slate was a little different.I think Vita has a better chance because it has a stronger title slate at launch. PSP’s had a great run in Europe as a device, it seems to have reached a much larger audience here than it did in North America. So I think they’ve got a good shot. We’re going to publish a few games on it and see how it develops.”
