Sony: Balance For This Year's TGS To "Shift Towards Vita"
Sony is dedicated to the PlayStation Vita. They've made that abundantly clear.
And you'll see more evidence of that at this year's Tokyo Game Show, apparently. In speaking to Famitsu (as cited by Andriasang), Sony Computer Entertainment CEO Hiroshi Kawano said the next Game Heaven event focusing on the new portable would be held "soon."
Further, he said he thinks the balance for this year's TGS will shift to the Vita, which sort of implies the PS4 won't be the center of attention...as if anybody was really expecting that. Anyway, the more attention for the Vita the better; software is critical and the fall is shaping up nicely. Assassin's Creed III: Liberation and Call of Duty: Black Ops Declassified could be huge, and there's the rumor that Medal of Honor: Warfighter is also Vita-bound.
Of course, many gamers are waiting on news of a price drop, too. Maybe if the focus will be on the Vita at TGS, that's when we can expect news of a price cut...? You never know.
