Sony investigating PlayStation Mobile Vita TV support – report

Sony is believed to be casting early lures to PlayStation Network developers while it weighs up the possibility of bringing PlayStation Mobile to Vita TV.

PSNStores got hold of an email allegedly sent from Sony to PlayStation Mobile developers, gauging interest in the device.

The letter outlines the various drawbacks of the proposal, since the Vita TV doesn’t have a camera, motion controls, or location services, and only limited touch capacities.

The Vita TV does not currently support the platform; PlayStation Mobile is only available on PlayStation Certified devices – Vita and selected Android devices – although PlayStation Mobile games are also playable on PS3.

What makes this particularly interesting is that the letter is presumably addressed to a western developer, suggesting Sony may be warming up to the idea of bringing the intriguing little device west, something it initially didn’t plan on but hasn’t ruled out thanks to unexpected interest.
