PlayStation Vita Represents a 'Quantum Leap' for Gaming, says Sony

PlayStation Portable has been hugely successful in Japan, but it's no secret that it's had its share of struggles in North America. Sony is looking to change that with the new PlayStation Vita. The combination of an HD touchscreen, a touch pad on the back, dual analogs and motion sensing will allow for some interesting gameplay possibilities and this has SCEA SVP Phil Rosenberg very excited. He went so far as to call Vita a "quantum leap" for gaming.

it is an evolutionary piece of hardware. I wouldnt go so far as to hype it up as "quantum leap" by that they are making it out to be revolutionary.

Evolutionary = dual analog controls from single analog

Revolutionary = thought controls

It sure is a quantum leap when you can take a console/PC game and basically recompile it for a handheld with minor changes. You reach almost the polygon budget and can actually port shaders straight to a portable. Well, and keep the control scheme. From a developer standpoint that is a quantum leap. (well, vita isn't quite alone. Performance wise future tablets will be able to do the same).

Am I the only one think that Sony is trying to say that the Playstation Vita is Scott Bakula?

must have piece of hardware

I'm looking forward to it. I just hope it gets it's own games and isn't treated how the psp was.

Well of course they say that, it's they're console.

But if they make true on their claim that they will support the Vita the same way they support the PS3, than I wouldn't put this claim past them. This thing is really cool.
