Upon releasing Retro City Rampage, Developer Brian Provinciano has nothing more than praise for the PS Vita. The game has sold more on the Vita than XBLA, PS3 and Steam.

It comes as a surprise to many that Retro City Rampage has done far better on PSN than Steam, where games like Retro City Rampage seem to thrive. For most gamers, the usual complaint about the PS Vita is the lack of games. “Vita players are hungry for games” he said, beckoning other developers to “make them more.” Brian Provinciano also praises the simplicity of Sony’s software stating that the “Vita’s been the easiest console platform to develop for, and I’ve dev’d for just about everything.”

The huge success of Retro City Rampage has lead Brian Provinciano to pledge another game for the PS Vita, as well as his ongoing support and encouragement for developers to jump on the wagon and make more games for the PS Vita.

Look out Vita owners/fans. With support like this, the PS Vita may yet start making a comeback with exciting titles to be released on the console. This is a good sign for the PS Vita’s growth in the industry.

Retro City Rampage is available on Steam, PSN, XBLA and now WiiWare.
