What Went Wrong with the Vita
Sony massively overestimated the appetite for downports of hit PS3/360 action games. The action game fanbase is tired of PS3/360 hardware and is eager for new consoles and newer devices with dramatically better technology. Taking mass market favorites like CoD and Assassin’s Creed and cutting down the already aging graphics and frame rates and game complexity and giving them a baby experience of the real game is just a losing proposition.
I predict a similar outcome with Killzone Mercenary. The excitement for new, dramatically more powerful hardware is going to steamroll over any interest PS3 and sub-PS3 graphics technology.

One of the reasons that I really appreciate the company behind our beloved console is that Sony does a fantastic job supporting small, unproven game developers. Sony gave thatgamecompany a three-title contract that resulted in the fine trifecta flOw, Flower, and Journey. In 2008, Sony made a similar deal with Giant Sparrow, and their first title, The Unfinished Swan (released exclusively to PSN on Oct. 16, 2012) is a winner.
