Miyamoto: PS Vita isn't a very strong product


Shigeru Miyamoto isn't against slagging off the competition in the friendliest way possible, with the Nintendo loyalist criticizing Sony's PlayStation Vita efforts. The Mario creator believes the Vita isn't a strong product, and points to a lack of compelling software.

"It's obviously a very high-spec machine and you can do lots of things with it, but I don't really see the combination of software and hardware that really makes a very strong product," he told Edge. "I'm not looking at Vita as happy that it's not selling well, or scared that it would sell well -- I'm not looking at Vita in that way." 

Miyamoto admits that the 3DS wasn't doing too hot either, not until it got the likes of Mario Kart 7 and Super Mario 3D Land. To be entirely fair to Sony, I'd say the Vita had a far stronger launch lineup than the 3DS did. There just seems to be a lack of anything interesting now

I think both systems have felt a bit weak, lately. I've not had cause to turn either one of them on in a while and I've not been too impressed by most of the existing library. I love the pair of them as machines, though, so I hope for more reasons to use them in future.
