Rohde: Vita has big advantage over Wii U Gamepad

Sony Worldwide Studios VP Scott Rohde has said in an new interview that he believes the PS Vita has a large advantage over the Wii U.

Speaking to GamesIndustry International, Rohde argued that since both the PS3 and the PS Vita both  boast their own processor, it make the process of the two interacting a whole lot smoother.

“That Wii U tablet doesn’t have a processor in it, so it’s got to be fuelled by that box sitting under your TV,” he said.

“We can do some pretty special things that you’ll start to see on the [E3] floor this year and you’ll see more over the upcoming months about what you can do when you actually have a processor in the thing that’s in your hand as well.”

Rhode also went on to defend PS Vita sales and software, saying that everyone who does splash out for the device loves it.

“It’s only been three months though, just three months. There are a lot of games on that machine and I think what we have to hang our hat on… Every single person that actually picks that thing up absolutely loves it,” Rohde said.

“If you’re a gamer and you pick up a Vita, you’re going to have fun. And you’re going to use it over a device like this [points to an iPhone] if you really want a game.

“Look at two of the titles that are here at E3, PlayStation All-Stars and Sly 4, for example. Both available on Vita and PS3, and there’s some sort of interactivity across the board. Developers are interested in that kind of stuff,” he added.

“We have a lot of good things coming. And some of the games that we have coming out in the near future, they do cross out into the mobile space a little bit… it’s absolutely natural for games to do that. You see all the big third party publishers have been doing it for a while.”
