Economics for AAA games “simply don’t work” on PlayStation Vita, Sony says

http://www.gamespot.com/articles/eco.../1100-6419548/


Does Vita need more AAA exclusives, or are indies, remote play, and streaming enough?


by Emanuel Maiberg on May 10, 2014






The economics of producing a big, AAA game for the PlayStation Vita don’t work with the traditional process, according to Don Mesa, Director of Product Planning and Platform Software Innovation at Sony Computer Entertainment.

Earlier this week, Mesa wrote a post on the PlayStation Blog announcing the release of the slimmer, $200 PS Vita in North America.

In the comments section, one fan made the point that while the $200 price point is nice, and might get more people to discover the selection of indies on the platform, Sony did promise the Vita will get “console-quality” games. Sony has put a lot of effort into making the PlayStation 4 and Vita indie-friendly platforms, but the Vita hasn’t seen many AAA releases like Killzone: Mercenary and Uncharted: Golden Abyss.

“As for the big games: The economics simply don’t work with the traditional process,” Mesa responded. “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.”

PlayStation Now will allow users to stream a selection of PS1, PS2, and PS3 games to the PS3, PS4, and eventually the Vita and other devices. The service is currently in a limited Beta, but is set to launch this summer.

tbh, handhelds never seemed like the right place for AAA titles. Then again I always thought a lot of AAA games in general were bloated, overhyped nonsense

The Vita has had a few AAA titles with Uncharted, Killzone, and LittleBigPlanet, but Sony refuses to further support the system because not enough units are selling...

...but units aren't selling due to lack of AAA games...

....yeah.

And no, big budget blockbusters are not the only good games, but we as consumers deserve to get some good stuff if we are not into JRPGs or playing ports of games we already beat over and over on the PS2.

Sony handhelds were never popular in the US to begin with, and making "AAA" games probably cost them a whole lot more money than it costs Nintendo to make their big games on the 3DS. It makes sense that they can't really afford to release high budget games on a low selling system. Especially when all the "AAA" games they release are just worse versions of their home console counterpart anyway. Sucks they are just giving up on it, but at least it has the cool ps4 cross play thing.

Just my personal taste but I'd rather play big blockbuster games on my TV and have niche Japanese games and such on my Vita.

The endless circle.

I wouldn't mind AAA games being on the Vita. It would be good since I prefer handhelds, but I like playing those games on consoles as well.
I guess they shouldn't put them on there if it's too much of a gamble.
