Sony: The economics of AAA games on PS Vita 'simply don’t work with the traditional process'
|

According to Sony the economics of getting AAA games on to the PS Vita just don't make sense at the moment.

Replying to comments on a PlayStation Blog post about the US launch of the PS Vita Slim, Don Mesa, Sony Computer Entertainment's product planning and platform software innovation director, had the following slightly depressing things to say about the lack of big budget games on the shiny handheld

"The economics simply don’t work with the traditional process. We have to do something different to get AAA games on Vita."

"We accomplished it to a certain degree by making PS4 games work on Vita via remote play. PS Now will be another way, streaming PS3 games on Vita."

"I can’t wait until PS Now is out on Vita - I hope you’ll try out the experience and let me know what you think."

So there you go. It looks like the Vita might be becoming a pretty expensive PS4 peripheral that you can also play a lot of incredible indie games on.
