Sony Worldwide Studios president Shuhei Yoshida admitted he's disappointed by the lack of third party support for the handheld, but he told Gamasutra he's ready to show developers that the Vita is the right hardware for making games. Yoshida said Vita will become an attractive platform "when we are able to define what PS Vita is." He said Sony needs to show third parties what Vita players buy, and what kind of games work best on the platform. At that point, Sony will be able to entice more developers to support the handheld. "As we can expand our install base and articulate what works really well on the platform as compared to others, it will get easier for us to be able get support from third parties," he added. "...In retrospect, there are so many options for publishers now that we cannot take it for granted that our new platform would be supported by third parties, like [it would've been] many years ago." http://www.gamasutra...hp#.UGdZ-t4mS70 Well it's clear that the Vita has no chance of becoming a successful console like the PSP/DS (with sales worse than the Dreamcast). Losing Monster Hunter to the 3DS also reduces any chance of a revival for the system. All I hope is that the Vita manages to carve its own niche in Japan (it's dcompletely dead in the West) with some of the smaller Japanese games coming to the platform.
