Kojima, Cage, Levine and Mikami Talk PS Vita

The PlayStation Vita is struggling. There’s simply no way for anyone to spin it otherwise. Hardware sales are severely lagging and early-adopters and would-be purchasers alike are waiting for announcements and reveals of some must-have games.

But do some of the industry’s most prolific developers agree? What is their assessment of the PlayStation Vita, where it is right now and where it’s going in the future? The June 2012 issue of PlayStation: The Official Magazine answers this question for us in a short article aptly called Developers on Vita.

Now just add Jaffe to that list haha jk

The vita is an amazing system and I think its doing fine. Because of Sony I know the vita will get mass software support and because of that it will do well. The vita has been on the market for a few months and with the imminent release of some big name games like resistance, cod, lbp, and a lot of core games, its destined to do well. E3 will entice a lot of people when they see all the new announced games for vita

Abash4043d ago

Let's see if it's struggling with Resistance Burning Skies and Gravity Rush releasing this month and next and all the Vita announcements at E3

kingdavid4043d ago

Are resistance and gravity rush system sellers?

Would they make people actively go out and buy a vita?

Probably not.

pandaboy4043d ago

resistance will probably make people avoid the vita...

dosn't matter if it has 2000 games, it must have the game that makes me want to buy it.

Well I hope Mikami's new game is coming to PSV then. I mean, if he believes that it needs more good games then he may as well roll with it because Zwei could be really good.

Nostalgia4043d ago

No way!
Zwei is the best news I've heard this gen.
I've been waiting for him to announce his next survival horror title for 5 years.
It better be for home consoles or I will be a very sad panda!

“It’s the pinnacle of current gaming technology,” - Hideo Kojima

Dark Sniper couldn't have said it any better himself. For those who are new to the gaming industry, Hideo Kojima is one of the forefathers of our genre. Hideo Kojima is responsible for revolutionizing the art and science of video games itself. Blending Hollywood motion picture cinematography and meshing with the Dual Shock controller provided the organic combination of something we have never seen before. These reasons above are why Dark Sniper always takes Hideo Kojima's words as gospel.

Hideo Kojima has always had a vision for the future. It's no surprise that Sony Computer Entertainment has once again crafted the finest piece of machinery known to humankind, PlayStation®Vita. What this means is that Kojima will be able to complete his grand vision of interactive gaming beyond the fourth dimension, not thinking about 10 year old remakes with cheap 3D attachments.

PlayStation®Vita is the nexus that provides the gateway between reality and virtual reality. Sony Computer Entertainment has always been the forefront of modern technology, going against the grain to only be proven right in the long run.

Dark Sniper carries his PlayStation®Vita more than his own cell phone. Giving him the ultimate satisfaction of staying connected to the PlayStation ecosystem at all times.

Once again, Dark Sniper is glad to have Hideo Kojima back on board. He is one of, if not THE primary reason of why PlayStation is the consumer leader in interactive electronics.

LeBronista4043d ago

Outside_ofthe_Box4043d ago (Edited 4043d ago )

I was on the floor dying of laughter when I saw it was you that was commenting and then saw the perfectly hand picked quote you chose to include in your comment.

badz1494043d ago

seriously, you sounds a bit like GeneralChaos or whatever his name is but he's all Nintendo!

Shikoro4043d ago

Yeah, they are contrasting each other...

Ascalon944043d ago

I'm sorry, but is this guy referring to himself in the third person?

JoySticksFTW4042d ago (Edited 4042d ago )

Yes, indeed!

That's just his style...

Man, I miss the old schoolers from the blu-ray vs hd dvd and the 360 vs PS3 wars.

And Open zone was crazy fun too. Newer cats don't know what they are missing.

Arguments and drama 24-7. Now most people are respectable and civil. Ah, well... :)

There are at least 40 registered PS Vita's in a 1km radius from me where I live. It looks like a pretty popular device to me considering it's only been 3 months since it launched here.

SandwichHammock4043d ago

I get an average of 30-40 users in my vicinity. The very peculiar thing though, is the fact that when I got it on launch, within 4 days it was picking up to 117 users/vitas, and then the number flatlined and started to decrease to where it is right now.

r214043d ago

i was surprised when i used my near, there was at least 10 other vita owners living nearby me, i seriously thought i was the only vita owner in my area :D good to know its slowly becoming popular in my country.

Solid_Snake374043d ago

How do you guys know that? Is there a feature that lets you see all nearby vitas??

Hicken4043d ago

I wanna hear that the ZoE HD collection is coming to Vita, Kojima! AND ZoE3!!!

Redcrimson1014043d ago

Dont tell the Sony fans that the vita is failing, they'll refuse to believe u and say it's a lie and that it is selling and has better games than the 3ds lol

kreate4043d ago

Which sony fan said that? I read all the comments above urs and nobody talked about lies or any mention of the 3ds.

kikizoo4043d ago

1/vita is not failing, only dumb sony's haters are saying that ridiculous thing (like the "bluray, ps3 is failing" from dumb people)
2/best hardware (nintendo 2017 approximatly)
3/ best games ? soon or later, like every sony's console.

and like kreate says, nobody is talking about 3DS, vita's owners don't care, only distiurbed fanboyz are always talking about sales, and competition.

Solid_Snake374043d ago

Yeah looks like they are pretty insecure about their purchased hardware
