The cost of launching a mobile game is skyrocketing

EDGE - The developer behind Cut the Rope: Time Travel has spent $1 million on marketing. (Cut the Rope: Time Travel, Mobile)

Good. I hope more developers flock to the 3DS, Vita, consoles, and Steam. ^_^

I think Cut the Rope would be awesome on the Vita :O

I agree. Actually, I'd love to see Sony cut a deal with Google to get the Google Play store on the Vita. In return, Sony could release some exclusive games for Android, possibly giving it the boost it needs over iOS. ;)

I personally think a Little Big Planet release for Android would sell like crack!

EDIT: Oh...and simultaneously creating a working relationship with Google. God knows they'll be a good ally in the future. Glass is going to take off like a rocket!

Sure Google could easily port their Google Play store to Vita. But to get the full catalog of games they have to Vita would require porting them all which they simply can't do.

Besides if Mobile dev wants their game for Vita, they can do so trough PlayStation Mobile. Some have already done so.

Very true. Most developers, however, cater to all the new phones that come out, making sure they run fine with their apps. I'm sure they wouldn't mind throwing the Vita into the mix. That means people who own a system strictly FOR gaming will be able to access your app!

It's not just a matter of porting something like Google Play to PS Vita. It is actually a hard problem, because the PS Vita OS isn't Android.

So past stuff isn't likely practical possible, but new stuff could be made available, but then you have Sony asking why do we want to share our profit with Google?

Sony would have to be pretty desperate to do that, but then again PS Vita sales is in the dumps. They might just try it.

Yep. Just turn it to where the screen is vertical.

a time-killer app is worth $1,000,000 0_o

This is mostly because Apple is doing really bad job at separating the gems from all the garbage that's been thrown in to the store.

Many good new games get nearly no visibility from the store which is rapidly making Android and Windows phone a lot more tempting platforms.

I know what you mean. I have seen some scams. Like a fake Pokemon Yellow and some kinda Minecraft carting game.
