Sony On Gamer Reactions To The Vita: "People Love It"
There are many who believe the PlayStation Vita won't last much longer.
However, despite the glaring lack of AAA support, Sony still believes the handheld is well worth playing.
During a recent GameReactor interview with Sony President of Worldwide Studios Shuhei Yoshida, he admitted their first-party focus is now on PlayStation 4 titles, but he still says "there's no shortage of great Vita games coming out from great indies, like Volume or Super Time Force Ultra." Added Yoshida:
"People love it. I love it, the way I can play the games on Vita on the go, because I travel a lot. I've been playing Shovel Knight, and that's awesome, but I can continue my play at home on PS4 as well. So we continue to support these efforts, and some Japanese publishers are announcing new exciting titles as well, like you saw the World of Final Fantasy announced by Square-Enix, that will come on PS Vita as well.
So I think PS Vita will continue to be a great platform to play games, and there will continue to be great games coming out on the system as well."
Yeah, well, that still doesn't tell us how the Vita is performing. Not well, of course. And if there are no Vita exclusives to showcase the power of the machine, and all it has are titles that can also be played on other platforms like PS4, then the future might not be very bright.
Even so, I'm keeping mine.
