It’s been widely accepted that the PS Vita is not going to be the success that Sony had envisioned it to be. To the extent that a representative of Sony claimed that the company wouldn’t be making 1st party games for the Vita anymore, instead they would focus on the PS4, which is dominating the market. But now, the Sony President in an interview GameSpot revealed that this may not be the case after all.
“I’ve been pretty honest saying our focus has shifted to PS4 and PlayStation VR, it’s not like we don’t have any development at all,” Sony Worldwide Studios president Shuhei Yoshida told GameSpot at Paris Games Week. “We do, but our focus is on PS4 and PlayStation VR, and we are happy to see third-parties and indies support it.”
He does admit that while there may not be big “AAA” titles coming for the Vita, there will be titles from Sony on the Vita. “Yeah I do, but we have to see. Nowadays, still people are excited and using Vita very frequently, it’s a great portable gaming system. As long as there is a demand, why not?”
We’ll have to see which is true, and what Sony has planned for the PS Vita soon.
