Sony has defended the PlayStation Vita-PlayStation 3 mix vs Wii U, claiming that the handheld has its own processor and that gives them an advantage over controller of the Nintendo console.
Scott Rohde, vice president of Sony Worldwide Studios, believes that connectivity between both consoles offer more power than the natural configuration of Wii U with its controller. “The tablet of U Wii does not have its own processor, so you have to take the power from the box that is under your TV,” says Rohde.
“We can do several special things,” says Rohde regarding the combination of the two consoles of the company, “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.”
The example that Rohde uses is the PlayStation game All-Stars and Sly Cooper: Thieves in Time, as both offer some interaction between the versions for PS3 and Vita. “Look at All-Star and PlayStation Sly 4, for example. Both are available for Vita and PS3 and there is some interaction. Developers care about these things,” says Rohde.
“We are preparing good things and some of the games that will come in the near future will come across to smartphones as well… it is quite natural that games do that,” he concludes.
