Sony Liverpool and Wipeout 2048 game director Stuart Tilley has claimed that his team been able to get to grips with PS Vita “a lot quicker” than any other platforms it’s worked on previously.
Speaking in an interview with Edge Magazine, Tilley said that out of all the “PlayStations” he’s worked on, “which is actually all of them,” the Vita is the easiest one to work with.
“The guys have given us a really good set of tools, allowing us to get up and running a lot quicker than we have previously, which is really good.
“We had a smaller team at the back end of last year that got working straight away on the game stuff rather than too much of the underlying tech, which allows us to really start getting the game in your hands as soon as possible.”
This is great news obviously as Sony has tried its best to accommodate developers all the way through the design process of the device, often consulting them on design choices, features and more. It’s good to see that it seems to be working.
Vita is expected to land in Japan this year, with the European and US launch expected before March next year.
