Sony has assured that the PlayStation Vita will receive its killer software.
SCE UK chief Fergal Gara said he would naturally like to see the PSP successor performing better commercially, but stated the handheld's best months are still to come. The executive referred to a strong line-up of games for the platform that are due for a release this Christmas such as Call of Duty: Black Ops Declassified, FIFA, Assassin's Creed and LittleBigPlanet.
"The key thing for the rest of the year is the key software drive for the console so as we look towards September, LittleBigPlanet, that really is taking the concept on another level because of the Vita functionality. And of course the other key big third party IPs – Call of Duty, FIFA, Assassin’s Creed – will do tremendous things for the Vita. So it’s our job now to take that strength of software and give people more reasons to buy.
"I think we haven’t quite hit the spot with the killer software just yet and I have every reason to think that will happen in the next few months."
Gara continued to say Sony would be working closely with developers such as Activision and Ubisoft to ensure titles such as Assassin's Creed 3: Liberation and Call of Duty compel consumers to purchase the device.
"Our first and foremost job is to drive install base and those IPs are owned by those guys so we’ll put our arms round them and work collaboratively with both teams to make the best of it.
"You saw an example of how Assassin's Creed may be presented there with the white Vita pack and bundle. That’s an example of how you can take the game and go the extra mile by working together."
Elsewhere, Sony revealed losses of $312 million, with their games division underperforming. The firm refused to respond to shareholders during their investor call when asked to break down individual platform sales for the PlayStation Vita.
