EA to choose Vita over 3DS

Written by David Stellmack


Too many advantages for Vita
Electronic Arts has apparently decided that they are opting to develop for the Sony PS Vita over the Nintendo 3DS. While they are not ruling out the possibility of 3DS titles in the future, the company thinks that the unique features of the Vita make it more attractive than the 3DS at this point.

In addition to EA, it seems to be the general feeling of most developers that we talk with that the Vita just has more going for it and a much stronger title line up at launch than the 3DS had. Many people seem to be on the fence about buying a new handheld, but the unique cell data features and the other features just seem to leave the Vita ahead of the game, even though it has yet to be released.

While some do think that Nintendo could bounce back with the 3DS, most developers believe that it will be a lot of work; and no matter what Nintendo does, they still might not be able to gain enough momentum to get the platform going again. They need more software, and with the Vita coming they just might not have the time to make it work.

Vita will be DOA. Too little, too late. Sony just don't get it, and I hope they go bust.

This article was nicely spun. What really happened was that an EA exec said was that Vita has a better chance of success than 3DS and will have a better launch line-up than the 3DS did. However, he's skeptical of both handhelds. He said that they'll publish a few games and see how it goes.

And EA has no right to complain about the 3DS line-up when they cancelled one of its most interesting looking third-party games before launch and won't put online play into the sports games for it. They're releasing sports games without online play in 2011. No excuse for that.

EA has been tied to Sony's hip ever since the PS2 and even earlier. They were part of the whole conspiracy to destroy the Sega Dreamcast and Sega itself by denying games to their system. It seemed to have worked because after that Sega ceased to be a player in the console hardware market. This is no surprise.
