The only thing that stops the dust is the rain. It’s a sweet reprieve, but there is no middle ground. The land is either as dry as the Betty Ford clinic, or as wet as the ocean floor. Everything can be seen from the ridge overlooking Armadillo as John Marston gently bounces along atop...

Sony Unsure About Vita’s Future

Posted on Saturday, July 12 @ 09:52:13 PST by Alex_Osborn


While PlayStation 4 proves to be a massive success for Sony in the west month after month, its handheld counterpart hasn't seen the same level of promisingconsistency.

The portable gaming market in Japan is a bit stronger than it is in North America and Europe, so PlayStation Vita will continue see more big-budget support in its home country."I certainly think you’ll still see [Vita] as a triple-A machine in Japan where it has a different function with the console dynamic of the marketplace," Sony's Andrew House told IGN."That for me is a given.It’s hard to say in terms of the other markets."

As far as the rest of the world is concerned, however, House admitted that the company is taking more of a wait and seeapproach. For now, it appears Sony plans to rely on Vita's remote play connectivity with PS4 to help gamers scratch that triple-A itchand then see how the feature pans out in the long term.

"I think remote play is still in its nascent stages, I think we need to have better understanding," House added. "We know a lot of players are embracing it and using it and seem to like the experience a lot, but necessarily that changes the dynamic.You know, if you can play your PlayStation 4 content at will on Vita, then does that obviate the necessity of having Triple-A content or not?I think that question will stay unanswered for a little bit."

Do you own a Vita? If so, what are you thoughts on Sony's handheld gaming machine? Is it worth the price of entry? Does the apparent lack of upcoming triple-A support concern you?
