Train2Game news: Sony praise “truly next-gen” PlayStation Vita as it launches in UK

PlayStation VitaTrain2Game students may be among those who now own a PlayStation Vita, with the Sony handheld console now available in the UK.

And Sony believes that the PlayStation Vita already represents next-gen consoles and gamers are going to love it.

agreed: “We have a truly next-gen piece of hardware and a great software line-up,” Sony’s senior VP of Worldwide Studios Europe Michael Denny told CVG.

“There’s no question that gamers have been waiting for something new, something that is truly next-gen, so certainly we expect to start with people who care about their games to want a PlayStation Vita.” he continued.

“You look at the specs of the hardware in terms of a portable device… there’s nothing out there like it – there’s nothing that competes with it. It really is a great device, but when you marry with that the great software – 50 titles announced so far – I think it really will appeal to core gamers.

“But going forward, I think it has enough about it with social connectivity and the touch screens to appeal to a wider audience down the tracks.” Denny concluded.

As previously reported by The Train2Game Blog, indie games look set to have a future on the PlayStation Vita, with Sony handing smaller studios development kits for the portable console.

Indeed, Train2Game students on work placements at Double Eleven are among those developing games for the PlayStation Vita.
