Nintendo legend Shigeru Miyamoto has acknowledged that the PlayStation Vita is a convincing machine specs-wise, but argued that it isn’t enough to prove of being a strong product.

The Mario creator reckons that availability of games is a factor big enough to determine the hardware’s success. As such, he criticized the competition; particularly Vita’s crave for more software.

“It’s obviously a very hi-spec machine and you can do lots of things with it, but I don’t really see the combination of software and hardware that really makes a very strong product,” he told EDGE. “But I can’t really say”

“I’m not looking at Vita as happy that it’s not selling well, or scared that it would sell well – I’m not looking at Vita that way,” he concluded.

Sadly enough, it’s an opinion many gamers approve of. The lack of strong line-up since launch certainly hurts the PlayStation Vita; but once again, the Nintendo 3DS has been in the very similar plight – that’s before Nintendo woke up and addressed the issue by slashing the handheld’s price in August while confirming a plethora of AAA titles. Overall, do you agree with Miyamoto?

Other than his excessively biased enthusiasm toward gaming, and technology behind the whole industry, there's a huge fondness inside that drives him nuts to pick up his keyboard and start writing for the love of it.
