"Meanwhile the PlayStation Vita has sold in the region of 4 million units worldwide; a fraction on even the sales of its predecessor the PSP managed through its life cycle (It managed around 10 million units)."
Where did the author get these numbers from? PSP sold over 80 million units worldwide. Vita (+Vita TV) sales are over 5 million ... just in Japan. Did it sell negative 1 million in the US and Europe?
I'd agree with the statement that...
They didn't cancel this game because they didn't think Vita was a decent market, so a new platform isn't going to change anything.
They didn't cancel this game because they didn't think Vita was a decent market. Even if that was the case, PS4 would only be a worse one for a game like this.
lol at their Vita comment. Apparently the platform's strength is streaming content from PS4? That's not even an exclusive feature. If you don't have anything to say, don't.
I think they're trying to say these games won't replicate the experiences you'll find on Vita and PS4? I guess they're definitely right about Vita. You can't replicate the experience of getting 0 games from Sony if you're actually getting games from them.
If Chris is concerned about how it'll sell on Vita, he should have just laughed at the idea of a VR version. It' frankly a mindblowingly dumb idea. Severed is a dungeon crawler, not a 3D action game.
Kind of rich for a site called "1080players" to be complaining about entitlement.
Part of me is immensely amused that GR bombed on PS4 because I'm mad the sequel isn't coming to Vita. But then there's the part of me that wants the game to succeed. Oh well. Just another example of PS4 port beggars not putting their money where their mouth is. If Sony had any plans of porting WipEout 2048, Uncharted GA or Killzone Mercenary to PS4, the failures of GR and Tearaway should tell them to not bother.
Persona V(ita) [not] confirmed.
Not from Sony, Sega, Level-5, Konami or Capcom.
I don't think you'd want Breath of Fire 6 on PS4: http://www.bof6.jp/
I think expecting FFE to decrown MH is a bad idea. Its real challengers are God Eater and Toukiden.
PS3 turns 10 years old in Japan this December. It doesn't matter if it's sold 100 million units there. Eventually people are going to get tired of playing games on it (especially annual series like Yakuza) and move on.
With a lineup that lacks Monster Hunter you're not going to get a sizeable amount of kids on it.
Don't tag Vita if there's nothing for it in your article.
Nier, Street Fighter V, God Eater and Gravity Rush won't help PS4 in Japan either.
If it's PS4 exclusive how is there a PC version to compare it to?
Got to love "exclusives" that are on other platforms ...
I wouldn't want a male Samus and I don't want a female Link.
Square Enix's 2016 lineup for Vita is their best ever:
SaGa Scarlet Grace
Romancing SaGa 2
Final Fantasy Adventure
World of Final Fantasy
Dragon Quest Builders
Dragon Quest Heroes II
I believe that's larger than their 3DS lineup.
