Is Sony's E3 Focus on NGP/PSVita a Mistake?

Posted on Wednesday, June 1 @ 17:44:28 Eastern by

More and more and more information is coming to late suggesting that the NGP, formerly known as the PSP2, will soon be officially unveiled as the PlayStation Vita. While we may have trouble accepting such a name for the hotly anticipated portable successor from Sony, I think the hardware and software giant has some bigger issues at hand.

Maybe I'm thrusting some of my post-Nintendo-3DS-launch wariness onto Sony and the PlayStation brand, but the hardware manufacturer is in the best possible position in the video game industry. They've got the strongest home console and the biggest library of software, so why am I so worried about the PS Vita?

Pushing a new hardware product will be a lot tougher than relying on their software strengths coming year. E3 2010 was a split decision between Nintendo and Sony for two reasons: both had incredible software lineups. Nintendo got a bump from their Nintendo 3DS but the wide array of PS3 software kept Sony and Nintendo neck and neck.

I'm not nearly as concerned with Sony's ability to show the worth of the NGP/PSVita. I'm worried about the launch price point and the strength of the system's software lineup. I'm even more nervous that Sony will treat the amazing PlayStation 3 lineup as second fiddle.

Putting the PSN debacle behind us, Sony has a ton of amazing software waiting in the wings. How could the Uncharted 3: Drake's Deception possibly play second-fiddle to the PlayStation Vita's launch? Even the follow up to the PSP needs Drake's help to entice gamers.

Sony has even more games waiting in the wings, including the recently announced Starhawk or the still-shrowded Syphon Filter 4. How about The Last Guardian or Resistance 3? Sound off in the comments if you think PS3 software can possibly top the NGP and which titles you're excited to hear about out of E3 2011.
