If you are a PS Vita owner, then you most likely own a PS3 too. And since that’s the reality, you won’t be needing a Wii U, Sony reckons, because PS3 and Vita can do what Wii U is offering “quite easily”.
While the company is keeping numbers to itself, Sony Computer Entertainment America marketing VP John Koller told Endgadget that “you look at the Vita consumer and a very high percentage – almost all of them – own a PS3″.
So you see that crossover works.
He added, taking a dig at Wii U, that there’s no need to own a Wii U if you are a PS3 owner. All one must do is buy PS Vita.
We tell our PlayStation fans all the time that what the Wii U is offering is something that Vita and PS3 can do quite easily.
Koller concluded, however, that it was more about content than it was functionality, knowing full well PlayStation, as of now, is dominating in software diversity.
It’s dependent on the content. So we need to make sure the content isn’t force fed and, to us, making sure that the gamer receives the right type of experience is what’s most important. So we’re gonna pick our spots, but that technology does certainly exist here.
Sony’s most boastful Vita/PS3 compatibility will be demonstrated with LittleBigPlanet Vita and its Cross Controller DLC, which will bring a plethora of new levels that make use of the Vita’s touch screen.
