Creator Of Mario Says "PS Vita isn't a very strong product"

Legendary video game developer Shigeru Miyamoto (creator of Mario and Zelda) shares his thoughts on the Playstation Vita, details inside.......

EDGE magazine asked Miyamoto what he thought of the Playstation Vita and responded with:
It's obviously a very hi-spec machine and you can do lots of things with it, but I don't really see the combination of software and hardware that really makes a very strong product," said Miyamoto. "But I can't really say"  
He concluded with:
"I'm not looking at Vita as happy that it's not selling well, or scared that it would sell well - I'm not looking at Vita that way."
It seems as though Miyamoto's real opinion has been censored in some way as unlike EA, Nintendo have respect for their competitors and do not want to start an immature flame war.

However by reading Miyamoto's words it seems as though he might not consider the PS Vita as something "unique" due to it being relatively similar to a PS3 unlike the Nintendo 3DS which is on the other end of the spectrum when compared to the Nintendo Wii.

Let us know what you think Miyamoto is trying to say in the comments below!
