“The larger format is not all that compelling for the consumer,” he said of the XL.
“And although I think the XL will help sales, I don’t think that the impact will revive weak sales of handhelds overall.”
And speaking of weak sales, he doesn’t think the Vita will do much either.
“Vita’s too expensive for most, priced pretty much the same as the PS3 everywhere,” he said. “While I think the Vita is a good value and a great device, when compared to the PS3 it’s pretty expensive.”
“Also, there is not much of a library of Vita games,” he added, suggesting that the software levels are still too low, “so sales will probably be slow until we see more content.”
