It’s Time Sony Proves The PS3+Vita Can Do Everything The Wii U Can Do.
Since the Wii U was announced, Sony has been quick to state the PS3 and Vita together, can do everything the Wii U can do. To add to this, Sony fans have backed those claims on forums and websites across the web with little to no evidence. While this may be true, Sony really hasn’t shown us anything to the level Nintendo is doing with Wii U. I’m not saying Wii U gameplay can’t be achieved with the PS3Vita combo. If anything it would be cool if Sony can adapt that technology to their IPs. The only problem is, we’ve only seen cross platform play, not asymmetrical gameplay like NintendoLand’s Find Mii mini game.
