i completely agree but why shouldnt they all work? its supposed to be a psp with some ps3 capabilities in it, right? along with some smartphone additives such as "apps" and touchscreen.
No. It is not. While the Vita is portable, it is not a new model of PSP. That is why the PSP-3001 is still being manufactured and sold. The Vita isn't a replacement for it. It isn't even a replacement for the PSP-Go, not that the Go is being replaced with anything. Apps are nothing new. The PSP had those also. Sony is marketing the Vita as a new mobile console platform that combines near home-console quality gaming controls, near PS3-quality graphics, and motion-control/touch-screen capabilities that allow it to provide gaming experiences that have never been available on any other platform. While it hasn't done much of that yet, it is still the marketing concept for the product. So far third-party developers have mostly produced PS3 or smart-phone game ports for the Vita, which Sony isn't happy about; but at least the console has a library. Even Sony's first efforts with key franchises on the Vita, including Uncharted and Resistance, have been less than stellar. Regardless, Sony has made it clear that it regards the Vita as neither a new PSP, or a competitor to smart-phones.
so gkp you just saying people in the game industry have gotten lazy then...
No. I'm saying that game developers and publishers are spending their money developing other games for other platforms. It's a chicken and egg problem. People don't want to buy a console unless it has a lot of good exclusive games, but publishers don't want to fund development of games for a console that hasn't sold well, because there is a limited market for the game, and they might not make a profit. It isn't about being lazy. It is about making money.
