Interview: Scott Rohde on Supporting Vita, the Last Guardian and Xbox Jibes | CVG

Unlike Microsoft, Sony's E3 press conference wasn't entirely focused on games that will be releasing later this year.

The truth of the matter is that, thanks to the early lead it has achieved with PlayStation 4, it has been afforded the freedom to take a more measured approach, perhaps even restrained, approach to announcements.

While there certainly were some big reveals at its E3 press conference, a trailer for Uncharted 4, LittleBigPlanet 3 and From Software's Bloodborne being a few notable examples, it also felt like the platform holder was keeping more than a few cards close to its chest.

"here's quite a large number of people who own PS4s that didn't own PS3s. A lot of people who maybe owned our competitors platforms and wanted to make the jump. We have real data that shows that. It's a shockingly large number."

Am I the only one who really wants to see this data now? Damn my curiosity! I know he said 31% but I'd still like to see the actual data and figures etc.

I believe it's mostly original Wii owners. There were a crap load of Wii's sold, so it's natural that those players are purchasing (now) the PS4 or X1, since nobody is purchasing the WiiU.
I also believe that some X360 owners also purchased the PS4... but remains to be seen if that number is in the low or high end.

31% owned a competiting system last gen and 17% didnt own a last gen console?
So nearly 50% of ps4 owners didn't have a ps3?

TheEternalGamer1590d ago

48% of people did not own a PS3. while probably 52% owned a PS3 last gen. which i am apart of the PS3 52% so yeah its half and half slightly leaning towards more people who own a PS3 bought a PS4.

Does this take into account the new generation of kids that had never owned a console and this was their first? I feel like these numbers could be said about any console. Millions of new gamers every year.

I was hoping that he'd say that there are going to be some more AAA games on the Vita, but then again he said that he'd love to play additional indies on it. What a disappointment. I would love to see an inFamous game on the Vita, or (Call me crazy) an HD remake of the first 3 Crash Bandicoot games.

aaa titles aside they really dont help the vita sell in any way. retail shops here dont sell vitas or vita games so the only option is online shops, which means unless you already know about it u will never get exposed to a vita.

also i noticed something funny on

"Sony PlayStation TV (PS4)"
basically they are trying to sell it as a ps4 accessory .... and you would only find out that it plays vita games if you bother reading all features, where its listed as a by the way
"Also supports PS Vita, PSP, and classic PS One titles (supported games TBC)"

TheGrimReaper00111590d ago

You know you didn't talk a lot about vita.
You're glad you didn't talk a lot about vita.
And you will continue to not talk a lot about vita.

It's such a shame.
A beautifull piece of hardware.
And Sony doesn't wanna make anything for it.
Indie is fine, but please! Give me an infamous on vita! Bioshock! Last of Us! Spyro! I don't care! Just ... something!

It pisses me off that Sony spent all that time talking about that Powers show, but couldn't show some of those 100 Vita games in development. Everybody is gonna get the show free anyways so did they really need to sell people on it for that long? Surely convincing tons of people to buy a Vita would've made them more money. I love indies and I'm beginning to love Japanese games, but that's not all i want on Vita. Stop treating Vita like a PS4 peripheral and give us more games like Tearaway.
