LittleBigPlanet and Vita Take a Swipe at Nintendo With a Solid Wii U Impression

1up - As we approach the Wii U launch, Sony's not being shy about its imitation.

Agreed. Sony showed LBP2 being played with the Vita at the very E3 that revealed the Wiiu... and BEFORE the Wiiu was announced.

vita playsttion 3 does not equal to wii u when will people understand this. wii tablet doesnt even support multi touch

TBM2161d ago

why do we even care what the western gaming media thinks, and says anymore? professionalism is an extreme lost art for them.

telekineticmantis2161d ago

for trying hard... I wonder what they'll do next. I can take a guess

ChickeyCantor2161d ago (Edited 2161d ago )

So are we ignoring games like Four sword and FF:Crystal chronicles on the gamecube?

miyamoto2161d ago (Edited 2161d ago )

The gaming media of today always try to reverse the chicken and egg story.

Remember Sony showed the NGP PS3 dual screen remote play feature first.

It was a feature too good to be passed by Nintendo & M$.

we still have low life writers these days?

Why is this low? Sony would be stupid not to show Vita's capabilities and exploit its ability to play with the Playstation 3. It will be a tough sell mind you since what most people want for their investment is support.

Let's hope things improve but seeing as how the Playstation 3 is nearing the end of its cycle there's not going to be much hype for this feature. I fully expect the Playstation 4 to trounce the Wii U but for now the Wii U will have the upper hand as far as game support and how well the Gamepad works with the hardware as opposed to the Vita and Playstation 3.

He means that the website has reached an all-time low, by openly trying to incite a flame war.

And 3.....2.....1....

I could actually hear the


nevin12161d ago

So is this one step of whats to come?

Fullmetalevolust2161d ago

is it just me or has the vita already been launched months ago with the very idea of showcasing this kind of tech?
Sure it wasn't at launch but the conception of the vita interacting with the PS3 proves the existence of the tech and the idea behind it....I could be mistaken.

BitbyDeath2161d ago

The tech was first shown years ago on the PSP, it didn't take off at the time though

Technical World2161d ago

Really, it started back with the Game Boy Advance, just not very well. I was dissapointed with the PSP's remote play feature I thought it was such a good idea but nothing was done with it. Looks like the Vita's fixing it though.

You´re both right!

This is the thing, Sony has done a great job with hardcore gamer's, will those gamer's adopt this approach? Hardcore Nintendo fans wont switch from Nintendo's consoles, they like the Nintendo IP's.

I like cross play, I've liked it ever since Zelda Four Swords on the GBA/GCN. I'm just saying that this version of crossplay isn't spelling doom for Wii U.

Not sure why when there is a similar idea shown , people freak out and think its doom for Nintendo. When Move was announced people said the Wii was doomed, when the Vita was announced people said the 3DS was doomed. I think there are enough gamer's that each of the new consoles will find a level of success.

HammadTheBeast2161d ago

Chill out, this is years old from PSP days. Why so insecure about Nintendo? They don't seem worried.

ChunkyLover532161d ago

I'm not insecure about Nintendo, I think they are going to light it up this holiday with the Wii U. I want to grab at least two, one for personal use and one for Ebay, hoping to get a cool $1200-1400 for one like I did with the original Wii.

MaxXAttaxX2160d ago

Are we pretending that GBA-GC connectivity was good enough to brag about now and that it's somehow the same exact thing?

O_O2161d ago

Wasn't this shown before the Wii U was announced?.
He's either a poor troll or completely clueless.
