Sony: 'We should have spent more time on Vita at E3'

Sony games boss Shuhei Yoshida reflects on lacklustre E3 showing

If you don't think SOny said enough about Vita at E3 this month, you might be pleased to know that Sony Worldwide Studios president Shuhei Yoshida agrees.

"I got lots of tweets to my account complaining that there weren't many PS Vita games being talked about," said Yoshida. "In retrospect, we should've spent more time showing and talking about our PS Vita titles," he went on to admit.

"We [had] 25 PS Vita games playable on the show floor, some of which are really great titles I'm very excited about. We could have spent more time talking about those, but we had a very clear intention this year to make the total press conference shorter, because we're notorious for holding lengthy ones.

"I hope we accomplished that with this year's conference (which I think lasted about 80 minutes), but from the perspective of people who are waiting for more information on Vita titles, we weren't able to provide that," Yoshida told Develop (thanks VG247).

Sony Computer Entertainment CEO Andrew House has recently insisted that, despite a slow start at retail, PS Vita is not in need of a strategy/pricing re-evaluation.
