Well, maybe not necessarily better (since Wii U has time to prove its worth), but definitely sooner! Last year, Nintendo no doubt stole E3 with their announcement and official unveiling of their next console, Wii U. However, the highlight was the console’s controller. In fact, the multifunctional controller was focused on so heavily that many people were confused and believed that Wii U was just the tablet-styled controller. That should speak leagues about how much Nintendo believes in their newest offering and the possibilities it contains, but is Sony already moving in on their market?
Sony believes in the PlayStation Vita (despite some less-than-impressive sales numbers), so much in fact, that they are finding ways to pair the handheld to their existing console. We’ve seen Remote Play, cross-platform play, interesting cooperative mechanics and video service announcements for the handheld. Just take a look at PlayStation All-Stars Battle Royale, Sly Cooper: Theieves in Time and the newly-announced patch for LittleBigPlanet 2 for an idea of the PS3/Vita connection. All of these features are exactly the same as the features Nintendo has been proudly going on about for a year now. The issue lies in the fact that Nintendo is trying to hype people about features and mechanics that their new console is built around when Sony is making all of these available now.
