Oh come on, he probably just misspoke. Like that Nintendo of Canada executive who said Rayman was playable in Smash Bros. People are not perfect. Give 'em a break.

Beetey1193d ago

Based on the way he said it, I don't think he misspoke. I'm gonna guess he genuinely had no idea.

randomass1711193d ago

That's the thing though. When you are put on the spot sometimes your mind thinks one thing and something else passes your lips. We can't really say for sure unless they ask him to clarify. It's not impossible for him to have had no idea, but I don't think that's the case.

Beetey1193d ago

@randomass Hopefully you're right that it is a mistake, but it just seems strange to me that the first thing to pop into his head would be a game that released months ago. Like you said though, it's impossible to know for sure.

BX811192d ago

Yeah, based off of the comment he seems like he really had no clue. Unless further in the convo he corrected himself.

Ezz20131192d ago

sooo....Patrick Stewart is Sony's Boss

XBLSkull1192d ago

Bought a Vita months back to pair with my PS4... Waste of money.

Prime1571192d ago

What if he receives early release editions and had been playing and lost track of its release? What if he's vp not because of video games, but because off his business smarts? What if he genuinely just lost track of time? What if he was thinking about tales of the borderlands? What if he was playing borderlands and said that because of top of mind association? What if?

Gaming media, pfft.

@randomass
If you are in a position like this, pressure or not, something like that should not happen. No excuses.

in my own opinion if the vita is mostly going to get use of remote play......I'm ok with it....BUT!!!

if its only for remote play, I still want it able to play old/ps3 downloaded games....like Scott Pigmen vs the World/Crash Commandos/Shank/Castle Crushers/etc....etc........

if this was possible, then i would get one just for that use.

SonyStyled1192d ago

mentions bosses dont know whats out on vita, only mentions one boss. perhaps the author misspoke too

Axios21193d ago

That's a bit embarassing

Hellsvacancy1192d ago

No, when you smoke in a toilet at the bowling alley and end up having the entire building evacuated because the fire alarm is going carzy, is embarrassing

Hellsvacancy1192d ago (Edited 1192d ago )

Sorry, damn double post

I'll make it worth reading, everyone listen to this AWESOME music https://www.youtube.com/wat...

The_Klank1192d ago

Thanks a bunch for that, new playlist added.

Geekman1192d ago

In the Vitas defense, it's not like Iwata knows that Zumba Fitness is on the Wii U.

Yodagamer1192d ago

Is Zumba Fitness made by nintendo themselves? I'd hope a vice president would know about a port that was co-produced and published by them.

randomass1711192d ago

I think that's from Majesco.

gangsta_red1192d ago

Definitely shows you the state the Vita is in. Thank goodness the PS4 is doing so well, Sony can afford to abandon this handheld if need be.

Theyellowflash301192d ago

They've basically abandoned the Vita. Shuhei Yoshida said they are scaling back PS Vita games development. Then Shuhei said they are focusing on the PS4 at TGS. At E3 and at Gamescom there were no big games for Vita announced. And multiple Sony executives have said they are focusing on PS4.

Theyellowflash301192d ago (Edited 1192d ago )

A majority of these games are ports and not made by Sony. LOL, you're linking Tweets saying Sony has plenty of developer support? LOL where is it in the game announcements dude? Where are all of Sony's big first party games of the PS Vita?

FanboyKilla1192d ago

wow they should stop selling it if they aren't going to support it. its like an insult to the people who supported it with their money. its like selling you a plane ticket to nowhere. wtf looks like sony is stretched really thin trying to fight this war. almost a year later and ps4 is basically what it was out the box. they dropped vita and vita fans like a hot potato. bbbbbut we sold 10milly. congrats. that sounds awesome for you and shareholders, but as a gamer, it does what for me?

you can fool some of the people some of the time, but not all of the people all of the time. sorry vita fans. wait, shouldn't sony be sorry?

Damn, look at that list!

Seriously, though. I can't even always keep track of my characters and what they were doing, even though I'm directly working on a story. This guy isn't making the games; a mistake or two just means he's human.

A lot of indies

Bit.Trip Presents Runner2: Future Legend of Rhythm Aliens is a Indie not by Sony was exclusive to Nintendo out the gate but this one is the first multiplatform since it debut on Wiiware and Dsiware.

xazingop1192d ago

oh sorry OtakuDJK1

sony didn't give up on the vita yet

you see, what sony's doing is actually brilliant.

basically, they're pushing the ps4 not for the ps4 itself... but for their entire ecosystem.

once the ps4 starts getting some amazing games, the ps vita will start doing better.

why?

because the vita's primary purpose within the sony ecosystem is this: remote play.

being able to play your favorite ps4 games without being confined to a couch.

the ability to play 1080p console-quality games on-the-go is the main appeal of the vita. and by pushing their ps4 and getting more devs to make games for it, the vita will also be benefiting.

sony will be able to say: "Look at all these ps4 games you can play on a portable handheld!"

and that's when the vita's sales will start to go up. people will be heading to stores in droves trying to pick up this little awesome piece of hardware.

look: sony is shaping the future as we speak. their objective is something our little pleb minds can't comprehend at the moment... but once they get everything rolling, you'll see.

you'll see the greatness that is the vita.

if you complain about ps vita price and small screen...Playstation tv/Playstation vita tv say hi

and PS Vita PS Now Beta Opens This Fall

VIVA LA VITA

greatness awaits

jimjam34421192d ago

better to drop it now than later. microsoft never could realise when enough is enough with kinect and it has hurt their buisness because of it.

TongkatAli1192d ago

Why are you even asking for exclusives ? I didn't see you giving Gravity Rush props and I know when Freedom Wars comes out to the states you won't be buying so, what is the point of you wasting your time on Vita articles, you never going to buy it no matter what games comes out for it.

You say ports ports, but Sword Art Online is coming out next and Tales is coming out this year too. You put your attention on the many ports and ignore the exclusives on purpose to help support the dissing of the platform, stay classy brahh.

Watch when that Digimon gets localized you will probably say "I have Pokémon there is no need to get that game" It's very obvious that the last thing you want is the Vita getting exclusives or PS4, you don't want your precious 3DS or Wii U looking weak.

Tito081191d ago (Edited 1191d ago )

One of the things that prevented me from buying a PSP have being the insanely pricey memory sticks, same with Vita, like if they're expecting people to buy them at those prices. Like sometimes they need a kick in the head for being too stupid when it comes to handheld, if they knew people didn't buy PSPs because of the memory sticks, how are they expecting people to buy Vitas with that same price scheme, and having to make a silly data plan with AT&T that became totally useless, having a lot of damn ports, and letting Nintendo have exclusivity with Monster Hunter. On consoles, they're smart, on handhelds they're idiots.

I know some of you might be disappointed since I'm a fan as well, but I can't just sit there and pretend everything Sony does is the right move, like I really want to buy one, but Sony's dumb business decisions are what's keeping me away from getting one.
