Sony Have Confirmed There Are No First Party Vita Games Coming In The Near Future

ps_vita_systemPoor PS Vita. The handheld device was once a pretty exciting prospect, but Sony has not supported their tech after launch. The device is still an incredible console for indie games on the move and remote play, but it hasn't seen major first party support for a long time.

And nor will it in the near future it seems. The developers under Sony's umbrella aren't currently working on anything for the console right now, instead focusing solely on the PlayStation 4. Speaking to 4Gamers (via DualShockers), SCE Senior Vice-President Masayasu Ito, has said:

Currently, first-party studios have no titles in development for PS Vita. Since third-parties are working very hard on PS Vita, SCE's own strategy is to focus on PS4, which is a new platform.

…In addition to that, a variety of third party  games is also planned for the future, and in order to further accelerate that flow, we decided to release new colors for the PS Vita this fall.

It's good to at least see that third parties are still embracing the system. I genuinely adore it as a portable gaming device, and I think it provides the best experience on the move. Seeing something like a new Uncharted on the device could have been really neat though.
