    I would like to think most of the great developers embrace the projects they truly believe. So it's not that they are forced to be part of these projects. They are being paid too. And investing their time in something they want to see good results from. Sometimes it works better than others, but you can't really please everyone.

    I believe that the developers do the great work, but customers dictate the success of the masterpiece. If customers stop buying, the project is automatically sentenced and dies. And that's something you can see everywhere not only with gaming but with any retailing products.

    PS Vita is a good console, but it didn't have the same impact in numbers as PSP, for example. Probably due to the high demand of the popular DSi and 3DS consoles from Nintendo. So Sony feels forced to stop investing in this project and move on. But this doesn't mean they are not currently working in their next project for a portable console. As you know, companies this big are always thinking and planning years ahead. Same happened with Nintendo and the Wii U. But they ended up with an amazing new project when they released the Switch years after. This is already enough as a proof that they were thinking ahead when releasing the Wii U. As we know, the Wii U was not very good in sales, but as a result Nintendo developed the Switch inspired on it. The Switch is currently 3rd place in Nintendo's sales worldwide, only beaten by the Wii and NES to the date... But not for long, I would say, as they are still selling as we speak.:D

    Pc's are completly different than a Phone. Phones are created with the sole purpose of comunicating with others and not having games played on them. pc's are built for things like that and calling my point stupid just prooves your ignorance as a casual moblie user!

    That has been an argument for as long as games have existed, and it's still just as wrong. PCs couldn't be used to play games, because they're for spreadsheets. Some people still think this.

    Your point is even flawed at its root, phones aren't made "for the sole purpose of communicating with others", if that were the case then they would lack the hardware to play games on them.
    As much as we can dislike mobile gaming, it's ignorant to claim they're any less capable as computational devices.

    Crash Bandicoot is natural for this. It is surprising that this was not done earlier, runner games are old news and not in fashion now.
