Almost a year after launching, nobody wants to make games for the PS Vita. Via The Silent Chief:
“We’re having a more difficult time than we had anticipated in terms of getting support from third-party publishers, but that’s our job,” Sony Computer Entertainment Worldwide Studio President Shuhei Yoshida told PlayStation: The Official Magazine in a recent interview.
“We will continue to talk to development communities and publishing partners and tell them why Vita can provide a great experience for the IPs they have and I hope the Assassin’s Creed game will prove that.
It’s incredible to believe that Sony thought there would be a ton of developers clamouring to make expensive high-end games for the Vita. The days of the $40 portable game cartridge are over. The Vita, while an incredible piece of gaming hardware, sells in a market that is rapidly collapsing.
