Sony head of Worldwide Studios, Shuhei Yoshida, has said in an interview with Giantbomb that he believes gamers will never leave the console behind.
Speaking with the site during E3, Yoshida also said that it was difficult for the company to attract third parties to the Vita, what with all the other options out there for game developers.
“It’s understandable when that happens,” he said. “It’s kind of hard for us to get as much support that we’d like to have from publishing partners.
“I always believe core gamers will never leave core gaming consoles because consoles are made for games. We believe we understand what core gamers want, and it’s our role to provide the platform for game developers to really create deeper, immersive game experiences.
“We also appreciate people playing games on smartphones, as well. I play games on my smartphone, as well. Gamers play all kinds of games. I think the smartphone and tablet casual market will continue to grow, [because] what it’s doing is increasing the population of gamers in the world market.”
