Yoshisa: Wii U will inspire Vita development

Sony Computer Entertainment’s Worldwide Studios boss Shuhei Yoshida, has said that he believes Nintendo’s Wii U will inspire developers who are creating games for Sony’s new handheld, PS Vita.

“It is very interesting the ways that Nintendo went with Wii U, and I was surprised it wasn’t exactly as it had been rumoured,” Yoshida told Develop. “Already people are starting to ask about linking Vita and PS3 to do something similar, in terms of using two screens, and having controls on the screen.

“That’s very interesting, and we will have to experiment.”

Yoshida went on to say that developers are already experimenting with ways to utilise PS3 and Vita together, “lots of the things that developers of Vita games are doing, as you may have seen, is experimenting with connectivities between Vita and PS3.

“The Wipeout [2048] team came up with their cross play ideas, and the other Vita teams have come up with ways of playing with two systems. It’s just a matter of time, as we provide the SDKs to developers so they can make use of both PS3 and Vita, and they might come up with something interesting.”

Nintendo unveiled its new console yesterday, while Sony officially named PlayStation Vita on Monday.
