Sony’s PS Vita has benefited from Sony offering up first-party titles like Uncharted: Golden Abyss and Killzone: Mercenary, just to give some examples, but unfortunately if you were hoping for more first-party titles from Sony, you could be disappointed as the company has announced that first-party support will no longer be the main “talking point” of the PS Vita.
This is according to Sony boss, Shuhei Yoshida, who spoke to the folks at Polygon. According to Yoshida, “When we launched the Vita with Uncharted, it was amazing; PS3-like quality in your palm, but as time moved on, you are seeing PS4 quality and people’s expectations for the graphic fidelity has gone up.” He was also asked if the PS Vita would eventually receive fewer first-party titles, to which Yoshida answered in the affirmative.
This does not mean that Sony will be completely neglecting the PS Vita, so you can rest easy knowing that. Instead it seems that indie and third-party titles will be the main focus of the PS Vita moving forward. This isn’t a bad thing as there are plenty of amazing third-party and indie games designed for the PS Vita, but we guess a little bit of first-party love wouldn’t be such a bad idea, right?
