Fight for the future

Polite Plea: After almost seven years and 7,000 articles, the number of stories is slowing down. Time and developers move on, but I'll always be posting, as the Vita becomes the new Dreamcast.
However, I do need a new Vita as my launch day model is starting to show its age. Please consider clicking an ad to help my new Vita fund!
Once reached, hopefully in time for Christmas, I will remove all adverts, leaving this island of Vita life an ad-free oasis!

Sega Studio ditching Vita for iOS/Android development

Add another one to the list of where-are-they-now developers for the Vita. Sega's UK-based Hardlight studios had a Vita game in development, which has now been put on hold. This might be until the Vita reaches a better user base, or it might just crumble into history.

The developer instead will be focusing on smartphone or tablets games for iOS and Android, aka "where the money is." There is no hint of what the game was about, but with the developer having access to lots of Sega IP and a remit to innovate, it could have been something pretty cool.

<insert usual hopeful comment here> that the Vita will sell well enough in the run up to Christmas and the project will get back underway.
