Worldwide Studios President for Sony, Shuhei Yoshida, has expressed disappointment in the lack of support the Vita is receiving from third-party developers. He has said he is ready to show developers that Vita is the right hardware for games.

Talking to Gamasutra, Yoshida has stated that once PS Vita is able to be defined, it will be an attractive platform. “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.

He also recognises the impact mobile and social games are having, saying, “There are limited resources that third party publishers have, and they have to diversify into new areas constantly; that’s a challenge to get the support that we want.”

Yoshida believes PS Vita to be the best hardware to bring an immersive gameplay experience to portable gaming.
