PS Vita not so dead after all.
Mostly, it’s fair to say that SCEA has all but given up on the Vita; they ignore it, they don’t market it, they don’t try to procure or develop games for it, and many times, they even seem to actively sabotage it. But every now and then, to the surprise of all, they make a genuine effort with the system. Today was one of those days.
SCEA, you see, confirmed not one, not two, but three exclusives for the Vita releasing in the US– these include Soul Sacrifice Delta, the expanded version of last year’s hit action game Soul Sacrifice, Freedom Wars, another action game that is about to release in Japan soon, and Oreshika: Tainted Bloodlines, a JRPG. All three games are Sony Japan Studios produced (as they seem to be the only internal Sony studio still making games for the handheld).
Soul Sacrifice Delta will launch first, with a May 13 release date- the release dates for the other two will be announced later.
Still, for the Vita, this is a great boost to its library, especially considering that after its stellar 2013 last year, Nintendo seems to have eased off the pedal with the 3DS this year, giving the Vita a bit of an opening.
