Well it's good news they are still investing in Vita considering I have one. I would imagine there will be less AAA games like AC Liberation and COD and instead go for more smaller and unique games taking advantage of it's touch screen etc.

I really hope so if that's the case, as what I have played from those two games I mentioned is that they are just watered down versions of their console counterparts.

Oh... I half-hoped it would be Subterranean Games (currently Kickstarting a title I am trying my hardest to raise awareness of - spiritual successor to Dungeon Keeper in every way), who are also based in Brighton. But I did wonder why that would be the case, were it to be so... well, nevermind!
