Is the PS Vita Having Problems Getting Support?

Gamers are no doubt beginning to wonder: “where are the PS Vita games at?”

Well in a report by CVG, Worldwide Studios head honcho Shuhei Yoshida admitted to PlayStation the Official Magazine that the company is having issues getting third party support for the handheld.

“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. 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,” said Yoshida.

Despite development for the platform allegedly being a little bit easier than previous PlayStation systems, there is clearly a lack of new titles on the forefront.

CVG also reported that Sony reduced it’s sales forecast for the Vita from 16 million to 12 million.

    Even though it might be easier to make games, it doesn’t make sense for developers that budget their large titles which need a much higher installation rate for them to even consider developing for it. Hell, right now, Id be happy with ps3 ports.

    I’m putting my vita on craigslist this week. I’m disappointed that Sony feels the need to invent ways to alienate is fans. I remember being able to buy a console only and go home plug it in and play a game, and save without having to buy a proprietary memory card when I have half a dozen sd cards just sitting in a drawer.

    I was tempted to pick it up a few weeks ago but honestly, I just don’t see myself playing any of the currently available games.
