Sony Computer Entertainment Europe’s Jim Ryan feels that the 3DS and Vita are “very different propositions”. At the same time, however, Ryan said that the two portables could see “some collision” as Vita starts to “skew to a younger demographic”.
Ryan told CVG:
“I think the gaming offerings [of 3DS and Vita] are so different right now that I think there’s plenty of space for both systems to live side by side quite happily. …I think over time that the PlayStation Vita will – like all consoles to – skew to a younger demographic, so there will be some collision there.”
Ryan also noted that Nintendo “is always a competitor”.
