PlayStation Vita development costs 'closer' to PSP than PS3

Games on the PlayStation Vita are more often compared to PS3 titles than PSP, which could make developers wary of high development costs.

"Michael Denny [Worldwide Studios Europe VP] has said that development costs of a Vita game is closer to a PSP game," said Yoshida. "I wouldn't say it's the same costs as a PS3 game but when you compare to what our teams spent on Blu-ray based PS3 games it's much, much less. Part of that is that because the screen is smaller and the media is much smaller in terms of a card, so developers have to be smarter to create the asset. ... So that helps to reduce the development costs of Vita games." Read more »
