Sony: Vita "Didn't Have A Strong Lineup For The Japanese Market"

The PS Vita was seemingly meant for US. The console has had a shaky start in Japan, with sales mainly tittering off since its launch, though the handheld's slow reception comes from competition with the 3DS and the staying power of the PSP in Japan. Shuhei Yoshida, Senior Vice President of Sony's product development, agreed with these reasons but still feels confident on the Vita's prospects in the US and Europe, in an interview with Game Informer:
One look at the Vita's US launch lineup and it's safe to assume that they have been catering to the Western market with Uncharted: Golden Abyss. I still believe our interest in purchasing another handheld has been dampened with the slow burn of the 3DS and shaken confidence with the PSP handheld (especially the PSPGo).
