SCE Boss Thinks There’s Still Demand For Non-Smartphone Mobile Gaming Devices

Sony Computer Entertainment boss Andy House noted on a video on the EU PlayStation Blog that the 3DS has done really well for itself since its rocky start last spring, and that fact demonstrates that there is definitely still a demand for mobile gaming devices that totally aren’t smartphones.

I think that shows that there is, in general, a lot of demand for a gaming primary portable device, which is how I would describe Vita. [However] our device in contrast has just so much more to offer. What I think we’ve done is point to a market that has really started out with potentially casual games on other devices, but now wants a deeper or better or more premier gaming experience.

Oh yeah, the PS Vita is soooooooooooooooo much better than the 3DS. Of course! Derp.

Ha! we’ll see how well it does in the current economy. I think ppl have proved with the 3DS that a price point over £200 is too much.

Of course there is, albeit the fad is long gone but there’s a market for everything but I think some expected a 250 dollar handheld to cook them lunch and rub their feet too or something not just play games.

So the disappointment ensued and stuff.

I believe nowdays most people rather buy an iphone rather than a vita.
