Sony’s Shu Yoshida has said that the hardware giants is planning to release “two or three” PlayStation Vita games per month.
When asked in an in-depth interview with GamesBeat how many games the company hopes Vita will have by the year’s end, Yoshida said, “We’ve been saying over 100 games in development. From a first-quality standpoint, we have about five or six games at launch, day one, and following up with two or three monthly. A pretty healthy pace. We’re hoping that third parties will catch up on the number of titles as well.”
Yoshida also went on to praise EA Sports effort, FIFA Football, saying that “it’s very beautiful, and the integration of touch to navigate the kicking. These experiments sound customized, but really, we have console-like quality in our third-party games.”
Two or Three games per month, from Sony alone, would be a very decent number and continue the great start provided by the launch. If third party studios also embrace the Vita, then we could be seeing a very successful device. Let’s hope it gets the support it deserves and not just empty promises.
