ESH | Can Indies Save the Vita?

The PlaySta­tion Vita, cur­rent­ly the biggest under­dog in the portable con­sole mar­ket, has had a bit of a rough start since its launch last year. Orig­i­nal­ly it tout­ed itself to be a true home con­sole expe­ri­ence in the palm of your hands. The strat­e­gy was start­ing to sound eeri­ly sim­i­lar to that of the PSP; a strat­e­gy which, by all accounts, had not been ter­ri­bly suc­cess­ful last time around. Since the announce­ment of the PS4, Sony has enhanced their rela­tion­ships with inde­pen­dent devel­op­ers and brought much of that love to the PS Vita. The one remain­ing ques­tion is whether this will be a boon for the portable, or if it’s too lit­tle too late.
