VitaIn an interview with IGN, Don Mesa, PlayStation’s Director of Product Planning and Platform Software Innovation revealed that there are over 100 games in the works for release in 2013 on the PS Vita.

Mesa placed significant emphasis on the indie support the handheld will be receiving, but also stated that Sony’s first-party studios have big games in development as well. On these unannounced  titles, Mesa stated, “There are games that [Sony] Worldwide Studios guys are building that are… going to be very interesting and innovative, but to give it away too early… we’re always worried about copycats.”  I could insert a very fanboy-ish comment here, but I’ll refrain.

The rest of the interview focused on player feedback and statistics, which you can read about in IGN’s full interview.

Hopefully, these claims come to fruition, because if there’s anything the Vita needs right now, it’s more games.

About Devin Kotani

Devin is a Canadian, and as such, plays hockey (no he doesn’t) and drinks maple syrup (not really) while riding a wild moose (he’s never seen a moose). When he’s not perpetuating cultural stereotypes, he’s playing videogames, which has been, on occasion, very bad for his mental health, problems with which have plagued him for years. Now, at 20, he’s getting his mental health issues under control, and he’s trying to decide what to do with his life. He’s currently debating between journalism and trying his hand at the dramatic arts.

    With any luck, there is a good number of RPGs in the works. Currently between the lack of any games I want, and the ridiculous cost of the memory cards and system, I’m fine with my shiny new 3DS XL.

    Like was said in the comment below, I didn’t get a Vita yet because of a lack of any games I want. Not that I can’t afford it, but the memory cards are pricey, just as the system is. It makes me dig my 3DS XL even more, with the great RPGs coming out on it. And the price was much more reasonable.

  • No, not Monster Hunter

    Needs a solid exclusive RPG.

  • An Tran

    There’s only 4-5 games on Vita that I really want. With maybe only 2 or 3 of them releasing this year so far.
