Sony is looking to existing PlayStation 3 developers to get the most out of the PlayStation Vita, according to Nihilistic's Rob Heubner.

"We're a PlayStation 3 company. That's our engine, that's out technology. And really, they [Sony] were looking for PlayStation 3 developers to really milk the power out of the Vita, and I think that's definitely the right way to go because it's got a lot of power," said Huebner.

"It's got all the shaders, it's got a lot of CPU, so it's really not that big of a change for us to work on the Vita compared to the PS3," he added speaking to the PlayStation Blog.

Nihilistic is currently working on Vita game Resistance: Burning Skies, which was revealed at gamescom earlier this week. We went hands-on with the game and came away pretty impressed.
