Hopefully more exclusive games for the PS Vita will come from this effort ,as it has tons of untapped potential.

Actually in terms of handheld games, Vita already has many handheld exclusives as plenty of Japanese games tend to get released on PS4/Vita or PS3/PS4/PSV.

Many of them just get ignored because the west seems to prefer home consoles to handhelds even if the PS4/Ps3 version is actually the ported version.

I am guessing that popularity of PS Vita will only grow in the future since it was kinda a head of it's time at launch like PSP was. (3DS can barely hold candle to Ps2.. hence lower development costs on games)

I myself own a 3G PS Vita and the more quality exclusive games the better for the PS Vita. Not to mention I've enjoyed more Indie games than AAA games this and last gen!

So he's talking about bringing some old franchises back.

I like that.

Great to know. Not really onto Japanese indie games but it is comforting to know More Vita games are coming at least.

Knowing Yoshida, he'll encourage every dev to port them to PS4 and only advertise the PS4 version.

A new Tokyo Jungle would be awesome.

Indies are still better than most EA, Activision and Ubisoft Games.
