PS Vita isn’t a ‘very strong product’, claims Miyamoto

Sony’s PlayStation Vita isn’t a “very strong product,” legendary Nintendo video games creator Shigeru Miyamoto has told EDGE magazine.

Asked what he thought of the handheld, Miyamoto said: “I think I really can’t say.”

However, he went go on to offer a rather damning critique.

“It’s obviously a very hi-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,” said Miyamoto. “But I can’t really say”

He concluded: “I’m not looking at Vita as happy that it’s not selling well, or scared that it would sell well – I’m not looking at Vita that way.”

Miyamoto certainly said a lot given that he “really can’t say”. Sadly for Sony, it’s an opinion many gamers will share – since launch there simply hasn’t been a strong enough line-up of software to maintain interest in the handheld.
