Sony: Moving Focus Away From PSP "Was A Mistake"
The PlayStation Vita is Sony's new baby. And they plan to take really, really good care of it.
Sony came with the games for the Vita's launch, and software has been the company's biggest priority for their new handheld.
In a new interview posted at the PlayStation Blog, Sony boss Shuhei Yoshida talked about how the company made a few mistakes with the PSP, and they won't be repeating those mistakes with the Vita.
First up, don't shift focus away too soon. Said Yoshida:
"In the past we launched PSP and then shifted our attention to PS3 when that came on the horizon, which we now concede was a mistake. So with PS Vita we are working on this huge range titles and planning ahead for a constant supply of excellent games."
And the games for the future should be plentiful. Yoshida says development for the Vita will continue to grow, and they even have a "fairly firm plan right up to 2013." He's also positive that they'll "end up working on more games than we even know about at this moment." In addition to the launch lineup of 24 games, other big-name titles are in the works; that includes LittleBigPlanet, Resistance: Burning Skies, ModNation: Road Trip, and Killzone. All games we kinda want.
Now wait a minute, though...does this mean the PS4 is a long ways off, or does it mean Sony just won't forget about the Vita when the PS4 rolls around? Well, let's go with the latter explanation.
