Sony's next-generation handheld has endured a tough start, but developers think it can still turn things around.
Sony continues to state that things are on track for the Vita, but not everyone shares this enthusiasm. Kenichi Ogasawara, producer of Dynasty Warriors NEXT, offers his views on the current state of the Vita.
"I get the impression that its spread in popularity is lower than expected. As a portable gaming device, I think it goes over and beyond the required specs, but at the same time smartphones have become very popular, so at this time I don't think that users in Japan, Europe and North America feel a strong need for it.
"I don't know what kind of expectations Sony has, but I think that all the developers and publishers probably feel that it is not meeting their expectations".
