During our interview with Sony Worldwide Studios president Shuhei Yoshida during this year's E3, one of the subjects raised was the PS Vita, which despite a lack of triple-A support, continues to attract indie developers and has a small but dedicated user base.

"So today our focus as first-party is to work on PS4 titles," Yoshida-san explained, "but we're offering digital games that works on PS4 and PS Vita, games that we release are this year like Helldivers, works really well on PS Vita as well.

"And there's no shortage of great Vita games coming out from great indies, like Volume or Super Time Force Ultra, that come with [their] PS4 counterpart that people can purchase one game and get the game on both platforms, and you can play at home on PS4 and you can continue playing on your PS Vita.

Yoshida continued: "People love it. I love it, the way I can play the games on Vita on the go, because I travel a lot. I've been playing Shovel Knight, and that's awesome, but I can continue my play at home on PS4 as well. So we continue to support these efforts, and some Japanese publishers are announcing new exciting titles as well, like you saw the World of Final Fantasy announced by Square-Enix, that will come on PS Vita as well.

"So I think PS Vita will continue to be a great platform to play games, and there will continue to be great games coming out on the system as well."
