    When the project manager at Capcom was asked why there is no PS Vita version, he replied.

    So it comes down to Capcoms laziness yet again basically.

    How exactly does a PSVita differ from a 3DS in respects other than resolution and not having a second screen, which admittedly helps with inventory management, but that's that?

    The Vita control setup is near-identical to a standard home console controler, either this person never held one in his hands or he's just dumb.

    More to do with the Vita's shit sales.

    It's just Capcom's reasoning is complete and utter crap.

    @Foxi4: Well you missed 3D.

    Their statement is just bullshit, they just didn't want to port it because of the sales, that's all.

    It's clear that Capcom doesn't want to port this due to horrible sales. They can easily do a washed down console port to the Vita with standard PS3-like controls (this isn't good anyway). Instead, they chose not to port anything at all.

    But on the bright side, one less crappy port.

    Because 3D is the make it or break it feature, entirely necessary for a RE:Revelations port. C'mon soulx, you can't be serious. ;)

    Vita is tanking because of poor sales

    Poor sales because no games

    No games because devs won't make them

    Devs won't make them because Vita is tanking

    Yeah...that makes sense.

    I think Capcom just sees that there isn't much profit to be had by porting it to Vita, not at this point anyway, and they don't want to say it. No developer wants to call the Vita dead or a wasteland, but its not hard to see that the 3rd party support isn't very strong for the handheld, at least not as strong as it should be at this point in its life.

    As TwinRetro explained, Vita has found itself in a vicious cycle:

    Vita is tanking because of poor sales
    Poor sales because no games
    No games because devs won't make them
    Devs won't make them because Vita is tanking

    Short of a string of high quality 1st party games that suddenly expands the Vita consumer base significantly, the only hope I see for the handheld, is both fixing its memory card issue and lowering the price. I don't see either happening anytime soon either. So it is what it is.

    Nintendo combat this by making their own games.

    Wanna know the real reason?
    Capcom hasn't published a single Vita game since UMvC and especially SFxT flopped.

    They've given up on the entire platform.

    It's funny that, of that entire run-on sentence, the most unbelievable and trollish part of it was "the last *good* resident evil game"
    RE:R...good.
    That's pretty funny.

    It's pretty much unanimously agreed upon that Revelations was a fantastic game.
    But don't get me wrong, I recognize your braveness for suggesting that a popular and well received game is poor. It's very refreshing to see this on the internet particularly.

    Well I've never been a fan of the series for various reasons, maybe that's why I found the game pretty sub par, uninteresting and boring.
    If I had actually spent money on the game myself I'd probably have loaded it into a gun and shot myself with it for making such a poor decision.
    But hey that's just me.

    Vita's sales suck because of a lack of homebrews. Why would I upgrade to my modded PSP to a Vita. At least Nintendo has games that appeal to me like Mario, Ace Attorney, Cooking Mama. Sony better leak some exploit if they want to save their system.

    I don't understand you, soulx... You hate the Vita and yet you own one :huh:

    Anyway, it's a shame since a game like RE in the Vita could help increase Vita's sales. (not because the game is a system seller, but because when you have few games any good game helps)
