Sony Senior Vice President of PlayStation Brand Marketing Guy Longworth believes the PlayStation Vita is the “perfect companion” to the PlayStation 4, he told GamesIndustry.Biz in an interview.
“With Vita, we’re only 15 months into launch and now we think that with the PlayStation 4 the opportunity for Vita is to be the absolutely perfect companion to the PS4,” he said. “What we’re seeing is that once people get it in their hands and buy it, they’re buying games and they love it. Now, it’s not had as fast a start as we would like, that’s common knowledge.”
“But we do really believe in that platform and think that is has a significant opportunity. We think there’s a number of things that we can do in the coming months and years that will make it a long-term sustainable business.”
Sony has yet to explain the connectivitiy between PlayStation 4 and PlayStation Vita.
The year-old console has received a price drop in Japan, but has not in North America.
Sony’s Shuhei Yoshida has said the handheld will not receive a price drop similar to Japan’s.
