The PS Vita has had a difficult time since its release — that’s what happens when you fight a battle on two fronts, against Nintendo and Apple. But now Sony boss Yoshida Shuhei has admitted that Sony, as a company, has been having difficulties recruiting third party developers to support the platform.
“We’re having a more difficult time than we had anticipated in terms of getting support from third-party publishers,” Yoshida told PlayStation: The Official Magazine, “but that’s our job.
“We will continue to talk to development communities and publishing partners and tell them why Vita can provide a great experience for the IPs they have and I hope the Assassin’s Creed game will prove that.”
Interestingly enough, I managed to check out Assassin’s Creed III: Liberation late last week, and it was mentioned that Sony were super excited about having a game of that caliber created exclusively for the platform. It’s the kind of game Sony need more of.
That said, it must be a tough sell. The success of Assassin’s Creed III: Liberation seems like a pretty big deal right now for Sony.
