Nintendo komt met een nieuwe gameconsole, de Nintendo Wii U. Deze nieuwe gameconzole maakt gebruik van een controller met touchscreen en de gameconsole zelf die je natuurlijk aansluit op je TV.

Volgens SCE Worldwide Studios baas Shuhei Yoshida kan deze technologie leiden tot innovatieve ideeën van ontwikkelaars om de PlayStation Vita en de PlayStation 3 op een soort gelijke manier met elkaar samen te laten werken.

“It is very interesting the ways that Nintendo went with Wii U, and I was surprised it wasn’t exactly as it had been rumoured. Already people are starting to ask about linking Vita and PS3 to do something similar, in terms of using two screens, and having controls on the screen.

That’s very interesting, and we will have to experiment.

Lots of the things that developers of Vita games are doing, as you may have seen, is experimenting with connectivities between Vita and PS3. The Wipeout [2048] team came up with their cross play ideas, and the other Vita teams have come up with ways of playing with two systems.

It’s just a matter of time, as we provide the SDKs to developers so they can make use of both PS3 and Vita, and they might come up with something interesting.”
