Are Cross Platform Games a Help or a Hindrance to the Vita?

Push Square: "The mere suggestion of Soul Sacrifice selling its spirit to the PlayStation 4 in yesterday’s Talking Point pushed some posters into a Black Rite-esque fury. Their argument: the PlayStation Vita needs exclusive games if it is to reverse its current retail predicament. It’s a fair response – Sony’s flagship handheld has certainly struggled to summon a software catalogue of its own since launch. But wasn’t the promise of cross platform games the foundation upon which the handheld was constructed?"

some cross-platform games are fine just dont make it alot of times
the vita really need is its own exclusives to make an identity of its own

they can make the same games for ps3/vita or ps4/vita but make each others game unique and with different content
for example ubisoft's assassins creed 3 for consoles and assassins creed 3 liberation exclusively for the vita, same game franchise but with different story altogether ^_^
this is something the vita needs

and some very unique games that cant be played in any other platform, not a spin-off but pure original (gravity rush, tearaway are examples)

It's fair to state that all the "mainstream industry machine" is pumping out (right now) are day-one, return-on-investment projects (be it mobile or console or w/e). SCE is obviously aware of this and they are counteracting that with other other tactics that (they believe and is proven so far) will keep VITA alive for a long time.

Hopefully, the big companies shareholder's and CEO's snap out of it and follow SCE's lead in making quality games for VITA. Making VITA games obviously isn't hard; if a small team of Indies can do it - so can a multibillion dollar worth company.

yeah your right, thats why im glad ubisoft is supporting the vita
CEO yves guillemot says that there are some projects for the vita right now, and im sure one of them is another AC title this year.

i got some disagrees, i wonder why....
maybe they are the ones begging that gravity rush and soul sacrifice should be on consoles, lol ^_^

Ubisoft is a company you never really hear about having financial issues with their projects and they are always pushing their stuff on multiple platforms.

Hmmmm. Maybe the suits watching this ought to take note of Ubi.

Anyways, yeah. Consolelites, uhuh. Always treating their little brother like a rug rat. Haha. ^^

Come on, who can complain about taking a game on holiday then returning home with the ability to experience it on a bigger screen?

I honestly wish MORE games were cross-platform. There are some games I'd just rather play on my Vita then and on my PS3, and vise versa.

I'm pretty old school and did like that handheld games were completely different from console games. I would like the vita to have its own games, but I do see how it can be nice to take your game on the go. The only problem with the latter is that, well, I'd rather just buy 1 system (ps3/4) to play that game on the big screen.

Vita's cross-play shouldn't be at the forefront of what the vita can do. It should be it's own exclusive games that makes it its own must have system.

I like them since they give gamers options, do gamers want to play sly 4 on the go with the vita or on the big screen at home. Vita already has some exclusives like gravity rush, ac liberation, uncharted,p4g,soul sacrifice, more are coming and Sony should be announcing some new ones soon as well.
