Miyamoto 'doesn't see Vita as a very strong product'

Shigeru Miyamoto has shared his thoughts on Sony's PS Vita, and it's probably fair to say the Mario creator doesn't give Sony's latest handheld a ringing endorsement.

"I think I really can't say. It's obviously a very high-spec machine and you can do lots of things with it, but I don't really see the combination of software and hardware that really makes a very strong product. But I can't really say.

"I'm not looking at Vita as happy that it's not selling well," he added, "or scared that it would sell well - I'm not look at Vita in that way."

While sales data for other territories is harder to come by, Vita has consistently been outsold by 3DS in Japan.
