Ubisoft believes the release of Assassin's Creed III: Liberation will help generate increased interest in the PlayStation Vita this holiday season, and that it is too soon to write off the handheld as a failure.

"It's a really good platform and we've always liked it," Ubisoft senior vice president of sales and marketing Tony Key told IGN. "The way it's designed, it's a beautiful piece of hardware. It's got cool features that you can't get anywhere else. And Assassin's Creed, we believe, is the right type of game for that system. It's definitely too early to say that Vita's not going to be a success."

He added: "Assassin's Creed III is not the only big Vita game coming this holiday, and I think that's a good thing.

"We're actually very happy that there's another big Vita game coming for Christmas from a competitor because we think that will raise all boats. It's going to generate a lot of interest in the Vita this holiday season. Sony's going to be spending a lot of money and resources to make sure that the Vita is there and it's relevant and it's doing well."

Assassin's Creed III: Liberation will be released October 31, alongside the home console games.

It seems like a great platform and I know Id love to have one but I think whats stopping me is whats stopping a lot of people- price. When everyone has a phone that can play games and a lot have tablets too now the idea of spending so much not only on the console but games also is asking a lot. Il be waiting for a price drop on the console before I get it but the problem is without must have games it can die off before it gets to that point. Which is a shame for something like this that has a lot of potential.

More down to Sony's own stupidity at arranging an E3 conference. There were at least 20 titles on show at E3 for Vita, but Sony only chose to mention a couple (they didn't really mention many games at all, though).

I never had much confidence in the platform, but its lack of presence at E3 was very discouraging.

It's way too early to shun the Vita (says me who's been shunning Wii-U all morning). Sony haven't even announced a lot of their own big IP's for it yet. Even if it never kicks off in a great way, there's still going to be a few great titles released on it.
