Vita “the best portable game machine we’ve ever seen” – EA’s Moore

BeefJack: "The PlayStation Vita has “that cool factor,” says EA Sport’s Peter Moore, and he believes Sony’s “great hardware” and pricing will keep the portable gaming market an important part of the games industry – even if the 3DS is struggling at the moment." (3DS, EA Sports, Nintendo DS, Peter Moore, PS Vita)

Bruce Lee is smaller and therefore more portable.

I wonder how this new UI will work

Does that make the PSP 'IP Man'?

I love the reference firemassacre!!
Etseix  +   1528d ago
IP MAN its way better than Bruce.

Steven Seagal is the DS .
dc1  +   1528d ago
But IP Man was his teacher/predecessor.. do you see the problem here?

By the way Steven Seagal is the DS or perhaps David Carradine.
(Not as refined but much more assessable)

i really hope this handheld is succesful and theres no way to hack it either, homebrew is what killed the psp with all the non stop pirating
StbI990  +   1528d ago
They will hack it, it will be hacked, and pirates are gonna pirate...

Things for sony right now are in the willing of people to keep their OF, for the features such as cross gaming, chat, psn, trophies and such, just like now with the ps3, doubt people are willing to loose these key features these gens for simply playing an iso/s, kids would tho.

I'm not trying to take away from the Vita because I too think its the bast portable handheld however when companies are investing in to this machine, they will say things like what Peter Moore said. It helps sell unit which in turns sells games. Its call great PR.
pain777pas  +   1528d ago
Call it what you want but when you add up the features and compare to any other handheld gaming device can you argue the point? It would be hard. PR is one thing common sense is another. No handheld gaming device minus "3d" value is in the Vita's league.

No the Vita is the Ip Man of handhelds!

Dear EA...
Please bring Dead Space series to Vita.

And maybe...

Battlefield / Bad Company for Vita too.
Baka-akaB  +   1528d ago
i think thats a given ...

EA already brought everything they had on most platform already (they even supported the ngage of all things)
tigertron  +   1528d ago
Never thought I'd see the day when Peter Moore would praise a Sony platform. ^_^

I have to agree with him, it definatly has that cool factor.

A portable Dead Space and Mirror's Edge please, EA.

Does he still have that tattoo on his arms, or was that just a sticker
tigertron  +   1528d ago
I think it was just a transfer.
Mr Patriot  +   1528d ago
It was his viens
banjadude  +   1528d ago
Dead Space on PSP Vita, would be God-sent :)
Darth Stewie  +   1528d ago
I hope EA uses the transfarring tech for games such as Madden,NCAA,Fifa,NHL,etc. Also please bring a new Dead Space and Mass Effect game for the Vita not ports.

A console is only as good as its games imo. The biggest problem I am seeing with PSV is that its getting ported games rather then new games or IP's. This is part of the reason why Nintendo have owned the handheld market for so long because the dont port console games to the handhelds.
The PSV is looking like it could walk all over the 3DS in terms on what it can offer but this was the same with the PSP and DS but look what heppened there. This was all because of Games and price.

Im looking forward to getting the PSV but I can still see my self getting more games on my 3DS.

"A console is only as good as its games imo. The biggest problem I am seeing with PSV is that its getting ported games rather then new games or IP's. "

this zombie statement will just not die it seems.

this is going to be just a port machine? really?, why its not is very simple, because there are quite a number of games already in development,that are made an brand new IP's that have not been on any handheld yet, an many of them are being made for pretty much every freaking Handheld anyway...All new games.

So How does that Help the Vita with the idea of Exclusive games that take advantage of the PSVita's Hardware?

Its very simple, it does not need too, that's right it does not need too because it's still a new game on the PSVita there are over 1000 of these games in development ranging from quick pick up an play to some extensive adventure games.

"The Playstation Suite was made for that very reason"

the PSVita will be far an away of being "just a port machine"

that zombie statement keeps getting out of the grave when the zombie was shot in the head along time ago, let it that Zombie sleep for god sake.

1 nintendo actually had as many ports and multiplatform games on each handheld even look right now at ssf4 and zelda 64 leading the 3ds pack) . It just wasnt indeed well balanced on psp , at least in the west .

2 . Even for said ports and old ip , there is a huge difference you dont account for . Till vita , those ports were vastly inferior .

Not just in the obvious power and graphics department , since vita will be a tad too obviously . But mostly with the controls .

Ever played a fps on handheld ? you had to deal with a meh control scheme at best and make due with what's lacking .

Same goes for other genres . Now at last we get an handheld that control everybit as well as an home console .

It's not just having a cod port on the console (yeah yeah i hate the game too , its an example) , it's being able to play it as well than at home , wich is an experience we actually never had yet . That alone would be a novelty and fresh

Here is the thing there is an unique input interface and AR tech to toy with here. This is not the PSP people. From what I've read it cannot be stressed enough that they can bring new experiences to the handheld. ME would work best on the Vita.

Vita's only objective is to reach John Connor and terminate him.

EA Sports...? This man's opinion is worth less than the typical N4G fanboy's.
Mykky  +   1528d ago
Yeah yeah what ever, show us quality games and I'll buy.
jaizenmonillas  +   1528d ago
