Sony says Playstation 3 and Vita already offers Wii U features
As the release date for Nintendo's Wii U nears, Sony made an attempt to draw attention away from Nintendo and back to them. John Koller, Sony Computer Entertainment America VP of marketing, drew a comparison between the Wii U, PS Vita and Playstation 3.
"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 told Engadget recently.
We've seen some Playstation games that allow the player to hook up the Vita to the PS3 and act as a remote, but Sony isn't about forcing it.
"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."
Although we have yet to see the Vita and PS3 bundled together, it is not impossible to see them bundled up and competing against the Wii U for the holidays.
