Even though the console’s name means life in Latin, Sony Computer Entertainment SVP Masayasu Ito told 4Gamers (Translation via DualShockers) that the company has shifted all focus to the PS4 and is no longer developing games for the Playstation Vita.
Below are translated quotes from Ito himself.
“Currently, first-party studios have no titles in development for PS Vita,” he said. “Since third-parties are working very hard on PS Vita, SCE’s own strategy is to focus on PS4, which is a new platform.
“At the beginning the PS Vita did not resonate with age targets under 20, but now the situation is changing and the popularity with younger demographics is increasing. Minecraft: PS Vita Edition has provided a boost.
“In addition to that, a variety of third party games is also planned for the future, and in order to further accelerate that flow, we decided to release new colors for the PS Vita this fall.”
Many people suspected this to happen, but not on this caliber. What do you think of this situation?
