Sony Stops First-Party Vita Development
Sony has decided to stop focusing on the Vita. Masayau, SVP at Sony, told 4Gamers that all their focus will be shifted to Ps4 as the Vita didn’t have the success they hoped. Here is what Masayau had to say:
“Currently, first-party studios have no titles in development for PS Vita,” he said. “Since third-parties are working very hard on PS Vita, SCE’s own strategy is to focus on PS4, which is a new platform.
“At the beginning the PS Vita did not resonate with age targets under 20, but now the situation is changing and the popularity with younger demographics is increasing. Minecraft: PS Vita Edition has provided a boost.
Maybe this is the start of a larger PlayStationVR push? Just a thought.
Halo 5 Might Port to PC
During a live stream wiht GamesRader, Frank O’Connor stated that there is a change Halo 5: Guardians could be ported to PC thanks to the efforts of Microsoft to ease the transition of games from Xbox to PC. Here a quote from O’Connor on the matter:
“Microsoft has made a huge commitment to normalise the Windows experience across multiple platforms, so you’re seeing elements of Windows 10 are going to appear on the Xbox and Cortana and stuff like that, There is plenty of chance that Halo 5 could appear on the PC.”
