A few months away is the PS Vita’s first anniversary in Japan, but Sony is still having difficulty convincing third-party developers to adopt the system. The PS Vita had a strong launch line-up, but suffered dry periods since, with new titles few and far between.
“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,” Sony Computer Entertainment Worldwide Studio President Shuhei Yoshida told PlayStation: The Official Magazine in a recent interview.
“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 and I hope the Assassin’s Creed game will prove that,” he continued.
The mobile space has been popular with casual gamers – the iPhone, Android and 3DS proves this – but the PS Vita has struggled to get a hold on the market. Hopefully, things will change later this year when big titles like Assassin’s Creed III: Liberations, Call of Duty: Black Ops Declassified and PlayStation All-Stars Battle Royale are released.
