Sony’s Worldwide Studios President Shuhei Yoshida has said that no Sony first party studios working on games for the PS Vita, crushing hopes for a new Killzone or Uncharted.
“Square Enix announced the new World of Final Fantasy,” he added. “That’s coming on PS Vita as well. And as you know and as I know, there are great games that come out digitally on PS Vita that are typically cross-platform with PS4. Volume is coming out soon and Super Time Force Ultra. There’s no lack of great games you can play on PS Vita.”
Yoshida seemed to lay some of the blame for PS Vita’s failure on a Sony success, namely the PlayStation 4.
“When we launched PSP, [it was] a big deal for people to be able to play PS2-quality games on the go on a portable. And that was great,” he explained. “But after that, when PS3 was announced, and people’s expectations for the high end graphics were raised above and beyond what PSP was able to handle. Those big titles and 3D graphics and action-adventure shooters are easier to play on a big TV. So the same things [were] going to happen, and are happening.”
Whilst bad news for PS Vita, Yoshida’s statement means that Gravity Rush 2 (forgotten about that, hadn’t you?) must be coming to PlayStation 4.
