  • Sony comments on PS VITA's Awkward Touch controls

    We all have been hearing mix response about Playstation VITA's rear touch mechanism (some says it is AWKWARD, whereas other says it is AWESOME). In the lastest issue of Edge Magazine SCEE President Jim Ryan shed some light on positive and negative points about handheld's rear touch controls.

    PS VITAJim Ryan said, "It’s a nice, unique feature, but it’s not something that can be used indiscriminately, because obviously you’ve got the issue of not knowing where exactly your finger is, unless you’re gifted with some sixth sense."

    The above statement from Ryan clearly says that VITA's rear controls aren't all that they're cracked up to be. He further suggests that PS VITA touch interface may suit better weaker gamers.

    "For someone like me, who’s basically a poor gamer, I can play Uncharted using touch functionality. Someone who is a very proficient and accomplished gamer can conventionally enjoy it at a different level."

    A user on official PS Blog complained that he already own four out of five PS3 titles that Sony is offering in their Welcome Back Program. Nick Caplin, Head of Communications for SCEE has responded to the user with the following message:

    I’m really sorry tha[t] there is nothing there that you want. We’ve tried really hard to put together a list of high quality BD games, rather than simply offering cheaper PSN titles. The average metacritic rating for these games is over 84%, so these are high quality games. Unfortunately with a user base of 77m people, it is really hard to offer something for everyone.
