Sony denies rumors of Japanese companies canceling Vita projects

Recent reports allege major Japanese companies are dropping their PlayStation Vita projects.

According to a story published on Japan’s Nikkei on Wednesday, an anonymous Japanese game industry insider said that “Major Japanese companies are canceling all projects intended for the Vita and are changing development to the 3DS.”

The PlayStation Vita did fairly poor on the Japanese marketplace since its release in December after losing to its predecessor, the PSP.

However, in an interview with Gamasutra about the North American launch of the Vita, Sony Vice President of Worldwide Studios Scott Rhode denied rumors that third-party developers are cancelling their PlayStation Vita projects.

“I mean, obviously, there is no way anyone could stand in front of a camera and say that all developers are changing focus from one platform to another, no matter what it is,” he said.

“I know many, many, many third party developers and publishers are feverishly working on Vita titles, not just for now, but for the foreseeable future,” Rhode explained, adding that the report is “largely exaggerated. I know many, many, many third party developers and publishers are feverishly working on Vita titles, not just for now, but for the foreseeable future.”

The PlayStation Vita’s official launch date is February 22.
