'You'll see a number of games coming out from all of our studios', says firm's SVP of brand marketing

Sony is to throw all of its leading internal development studios behind the PS Vita, the company’s SVP of brand marketing has said.

Speaking to GameTrailers, Guy Langworth claimed the console giant would be releasing games from its studios such as Naughty Dog, Media Molecule, Guerilla and Sony Santa Monica during the platform’s lifespan.

“You’ll see a number of games coming out all of our studio’s” he said.

He added that Sony’s internal developers were “fired up” about the possibilities of Vita, and said that the handheld offered the chance to have a home-console like experience on the move.

“They’re really fired up about the canvass this gives them, a chance to create some incredible experiences for people,” he said.

“Never before have you been able to play some of the great games and great franchises on a handheld and really have a console like experience. It’s like having a PS3 in your hands”

The PS Vita has already seen Naughty Dog's Uncharted franchise hit the platform via Sony Bend's Golden Abyss, whilst Tarsier Studios and Double Eleven are currently developing LittleBigPlanet for the handheld, due for release later this year.

As well as looking to back the console with high profile games from its internal studios, Langworth also claimed that the upcoming Call of Duty title for the platform would be a “game changer”, but did not give any further details on the project.

Vita is due for release in Europe and North America on Wednesday, February 22nd.
