98w ago - SCEE Manager James Gallagher has shared an interview today with the PlayStation Vita designer on the perfect screen size and battling engineers below.
To quote: Last December I attended the Tokyo launch of PlayStation Vita, which is going to be in your hands just about one month from now.
While I was there I got to chat with Tokashi Sogabe of the Sony Corporate Design Centre, head of the team in charge of the aesthetic of the console.
Sogabe-san has 27 years of experience working with Sony, in which time he has designed the Walkman, Vaio notebooks, the current slimmer model of PS3 and many other electronic
