Will the Vita see a turn-around before year-end?

Though the PlayStation Vita has seen a tough time since its release with a high price tag, limited range of exclusives and competition from the Nintendo 3DS, President of SCE Worldwide Studios Shuhei Yoshida stated to CVG that the company is still going to continue pursuing the handheld market. ”Yeah I think we can still pursue it, and I don’t think we have to make that decision now.

“Also, the distinction between the portables and mobile is [blurring], because there are all kinds of hybrids, different form factors and operating systems can still be conceived, in terms of how we characterize portable and mobile. We still like PS Vita and we know people who buy it really like it.”

This was exemplified in the Vita’s Remote Play feature, which uses the power of the Cloud to play PS4 games on the device. Gamescom 2013 was also devoted the Vita, debuting exclusives, indie titles, a price drop and much, much more. Will the device see a turn-around? Time will tell.
