Tony Key, Senior Vice President of Sales and Marketing for Ubisoft has been praising the PS Vita in an interview with IGN. Key told IGN that “We need to put our best stuff on that system,” and that the Vita is “a really good platform” and that as a company they’ve “always liked it.”
“The way it’s designed, it’s a beautiful piece of hardware. It’s got cool features that you can’t get anywhere else. And Assassin’s Creed, we believe, is the right type of game for that system. It’s definitely too early to say that Vita’s not going to be a success,” he said.
“Assassin’s Creed III is not the only big Vita game coming this holiday, and I think that’s a good thing,” he added, referring to Call of Duty: Black Ops Declassified, which is little more than a logo at the moment. “We’re actually very happy that there’s another big Vita game coming for Christmas from a competitor because we think that will raise all boats. It’s going to generate a lot of interest in the Vita this holiday season.”
Sony’s going to be spending a lot of money and resources to make sure that the Vita is there and it’s relevant and it’s doing well,” he concluded.
