The Wii U gamepad and the PSP Vita are both touchscreen devices. The vice-president of Sony Worldwide Studios, Scott Rodhe, says that the PSP Vita is better. (Well it is the vice-president of the company that developed the PSP Vita. So it was completley biased). He’s basing it on the fact that the “Wii U tablet doesn’t have a processor in it.” Unlike the Wii U tablet, the PSP Vita and the 3DS are handheld gaming devices. Like the PSP Vita, the 3DS has it’s own processor; also like the PSP Vita, the 3DS can connect to a console. I believe that Nintendo has already confirmed that the Wii U will be no more than about $300 (USD). The PSP Vita was about $500 (also USD) when it first came out. Then there’s the additional memory. I don’t remember exactly how much it is to get more memory storage for the PSP Vita, but it’s a lot.
“That Wii U tablet doesn’t have a processor in it, so it’s got to be fueled by that box sitting under your TV.”
“We can do some pretty special things that you’ll start to see on the [E3] floor this year and you’ll see more over the upcoming months about what you can do when you actually have a processor in the thing that’s in your hand as well.”
“It’s only been three months though, just three months. There are a lot of games on that machine and I think what we have to hang our hat on… Every single person that actually picks that thing up absolutely loves it.”
