As we approach the first anniversary of the PS Vitas Japanese debut, worldwide sales of Sonys flashy new portable system can be described as slow but steady.

Despite an initial offering of what has been described as one of the strongest software lineups for any piece of hardware, Sony is still finding it difficult to attract third party developers to the Vita.

Were having a more difficult time than we had anticipated in terms of getting support from third-party publishers, but thats our job,Sony Computer Entertainment Worldwide Studio President Shuhei Yoshida told PlayStation: The Official Magazine in a recent interview.

We will continue to talk to development communities and publishing partners and tell them why Vita can provide a great experience for the IPs they have and I hope the Assassins Creed game will prove that.

The exploding popularity of mobile/ social sector has developers anxious to shift focus to that growing market, according to Yoshida. However, he still believes Sony can attract small,independent studios with the Vita and PS Mobile.TheSilentChief

Let's couple this with exceedingly poor sales for the Vita- the Vita and PSP combined were handily outsold worldwide by the 3DS last quarter, and the 3DS has moved half of the Vita's total LTD in the last two weeks in Japan- and you know the system is in trouble.

Hopefully, now cows will admit all is not rosy in Vitaland. When even Yoshida is outright admitting third parties don't want to develop for the system, you know something must be wrong, very, very wrong.

And just for you video games journalism elitists, here's a link to IGN with the same Yoshida interview.

...The Silent Chief.... who?

We are well aware of the Vita's difficulties there is no need for a thread every hour.

Looking at the source Implies you are scrapping the bottom of the barrel for doom news.

It's from The Official Playstation Magazine, bub. I just got it from The Silent Chief because they were the first site I saw it on. If you'd like, here's a link to IGN talking about the exact same thing.

How is Char been nothing but finding DOOM news for Vita? He wants it to do well (so do I, even though Sony's handhelds don't interest me as much as their consoles do). He's just sharing news about the Vita's struggles. Hell, I have done it for 3DS when it was having a hard time.

I saw this on IGN a few days ago but didn't post it because all the Vita doom and gloom stuff was getting boring, and I didn't find the article interesting either. Nice to see Char finds it so.

If the Vita is doing so well WITHOUT all the support, how well will it do WITH support? If you want real handheld gaming, Go Playstation :cool:

Near future it will be my most played system but for now it is covering dust, Sony really screwed themselves with the lack of Vita marketing and Mass Market games like Monster Hunter, only person to blame is themselves. If the Vita ends up being horrible if Sony is still in the game we can only hope they learn from their mistakes..

Developers are going to look at sales and current interest and simply go "No, Thanks" PlayStation seemed to think that the Vita would speak for itself on its release but truth is its getting no publicity anywhere expect for dedicated game shops. I can't remember a single Vita advert on T.V or a advert for any of there games, its almost like it hasn't been released yet.

Who pretends everything is rosy? People are just combating the truckload of glood and doom threads being made every day. I recall the shame happeing with the 3DS and many systems before it. The PS Vita is selling like crap currently and what happens from now on will depend on what Sony does however, as far as libraries go at this point in any systems life cycle (6 months) it did better then most. That part pretty much is true.

Hahaha no. I just like intelligent discussion ( i know this is hardly the place but this has sort of become my home on the internet) Not the same VITA IS DOOMED 3DS IS DOING X, every single day. It gets to be a bit monotonous and is kind of counter productive to the system wars machine.

What did you do? Go back and just cut and paste the words like 360 and PS3 out of someone else's post? Wasn't true then, and it isn't true now. Also, Sandow is the reason I stopped watching those shows. He made something bad ten times worse.

I'm not surprised in the slightest.

Ever since they showed off the Vita as the NGP it was clear that Sony was going into this portable generation with most of the same mistakes they had last generation. It's come back to bite them in the ass. It's too bad considering that the Vita is a nice piece of hardware, but you're not going to be able to move units with B teams working on AAA franchises and console ports.

I've always said I've been interested in the hardware, I'm just waiting for the high quality games that aren't found on other platforms.

In terms of the "Vita is doomed" stuff, it's been a lot less compared to what Nintendo suffered with the 3DS.Everyone was claiming it was dead and we'd have articles almost every day, the Vita has hardly been through the same from mainstream media.

I know they did, but the 3DS also had a lack of E3 presentation as well. I'm not saying the vita is in a bad spot because it obviously is. But do we really need to read it every single day?

Where did those 3 come up? Cows sure didn't mind saying 3DS was doomed even though the sales were way better than the Vita's in the same timeframe. Nope, I'm not mistaken about you. It's easy to get a grasp of someone's posting when they have 9k posts of the same thing over and over. Not to mention with that chick you always have in your sig with that gibberish streaming too.

For a while there I was dragging out zombie threads because of this, but got cautioned against it... but I felt if people are going to post the same old crap everyday, why not just drag out the same crap and see if any one can tell the difference.

I'm not surprised in the slightest.

Ever since they showed off the Vita as the NGP it was clear that Sony was going into this portable generation with most of the same mistakes they had last generation. It's come back to bite them in the ass. It's too bad considering that the Vita is a nice piece of hardware, but you're not going to be able to move units with B teams working on AAA franchises and console ports.

I've always said I've been interested in the hardware, I'm just waiting for the high quality games that aren't found on other platforms.

Luckily for me I always wanted a PSP. So the ability to download some older games while having some vita games at my disposal is great. BUT, I keep referring to the PS vita being in shape of the 3DS from the beginning. Ok starter games, pretty good backlog (3DS with the ability to play DS games was a lot better. PSP has ok games) I'd give it a full year and the holiday season to see what happens. We all heard how the PSP was doomed and yada yada, but it did make it to the end of the its cycle.

I know they did, but the 3DS also had a lack of E3 presentation as well. I'm not saying the vita is in a bad spot because it obviously is. But do we really need to read it every single day?Animal-Mother

When the media has a straw they grasp at it, especially this time of year. We got the same thing with 3DS last year. If it fails then I guess they win a medal for saying it failed. But look at all the times they've been wrong. We'll have to see what consumers say with their wallets.

For me, the memory cards are the main problem. They've made them expensive but you need them to play games. Why make it so high priority then charge the earth. At least Sony know there is a problem.

Hahaha no. I just like intelligent discussion ( i know this is hardly the place but this has sort of become my home on the internet) Not the same VITA IS DOOMED 3DS IS DOING X, every single day. It gets to be a bit monotonous and is kind of counter productive to the system wars machine.

For a while there I was dragging out zombie threads because of this, but got cautioned against it... but I felt if people are going to post the same old crap everyday, why not just drag out the same crap and see if any one can tell the difference.

You're absolutely right, system wars is kind of like the eternal return theory :P

lol, you guys believe this guy when he says he wants it to do good? Who goes around the web and find vita doom articles? How is that wanting to see the system do good? Y

Are you talking about Char? He has said numerous times in other threads that he wants it to do well. He's just sharing on what Shuhei Yoshida is saying on this. Damn!

Hilarious responses in this thread.

It's a topic that has been discussed for a very long time (Vita 3rd party support) and Yoshida just now acknowledges it as a problem, this is huge, he basically confirmed popular belief.

You tend to find doom and gloom if your looking for it or not on the internet. If not some website a forum will get hold of it. I'm still trying to find articles not involving Doubting Thomas and the theories on Wii U. Can't even wait for that one to come out before crying doom.

[QUOTE="Grawse"]So much asshurt. Don't act like you're above them. You are one of the biggest cows. You don't even own a Vita, but you flock to every thread to cry because of the Sony label on itGrawse

Above the likes of Atarikid, Loosingends and reach3? Youre damn right I am above them :D.

After 6 months I and a lot of people are just bored of the vita doom threads

And I think you have me confused with someone else, there are alot of posters with names starting with Z :)

Where did those 3 come up? Cows sure didn't mind saying 3DS was doomed even though the sales were way better than the Vita's in the same timeframe. Nope, I'm not mistaken about you. It's easy to get a grasp of someone's posting when they have 9k posts of the same thing over and over. Not to mention with that chick you always have in your sig with that gibberish streaming too.

Right I see, after 9k posts you know very well? you've been following my posting habits since 2007 when I joined GS?

Thats dedication, please find the thread I created bashing on 3DS, heck I was one of the defenders saying it was still in its infancy and would be fine :?

But since you know me so intimately please find the thread where I did any of the things youre accusing me of,

Its Ok I'll wait:D

he doesn't want it to do well, he's a fanboy and I'm not surprise to see a user blindly defending him when that user has nintendo is his name. I don't care if he continues to post these articles but don't post these threads and claim you want the system to do well, if he did he wouldn't waste his time looking for articles like this. If you wanted your business to do well would you go around and posting threads about how bad your business is doing? Thank you.

I spoke with a developer of games. He understands why developers do not want to work on Vita. The costs of making console experience type of games for an install base of a million is not enticing coupled with the fact that Sony makes crap developer tools which makes doing simple task much more difficult.

The difference to me is the 3DS still had a lot of great games to look forward to. Super Mario 3D Land, Mario Kart 7, Paper Mario, Luigi's Mansion 2, Kid Icarus: Uprising, etc. With the Vita, I don't know what else is on the horizon besides Persona 4 Golden and that Assassin's Creed 3: Liberation game (which I'm iffy about given the developers track record, but we'll see).

I agree, we'd be better waiting off a year after the holiday season to see how the Vita performs. In terms of software though, I don't know what else is on the horizon since Sony hasn't said much.
