Sony Computer Entertainment UK chief Fergal Gara in an interview with MCV wishes the PlayStation Vita was selling better. However he believes its best months are still to come. “We would love it to be selling more and we intend to make it sell more and help it sell a lot more,” said Gara.
“The key thing for the rest of the year is the key software drive for the console so as we look towards September, LittleBigPlanet, that really is taking the concept on another level because of the Vita functionality,” said Gara. “And of course the other key big third party IPs – Call of Duty, FIFA, Assassin’s Creed – will do tremendous things for the Vita. So it’s our job now to take that strength of software and give people more reasons to buy.”
“I think we haven’t quite hit the spot with the killer software just yet and I have every reason to think that will happen in the next few months,” added Gara. “Our first and foremost job is to drive install base and those IPs are owned by those guys so we’ll put our arms round them and work collaboratively with both teams to make the best of it.”
“You saw an example of how Assassin’s Creed may be presented there with the white Vita pack and bundle. That’s an example of how you can take the game and go the extra mile by working together.”
