On Wednesday morning, Capcom addressed questions concerning PS Vita’s omission from the re-release of “Resident Evil Revelations”. Mike Lunn, Product Manager at Capcom, replied to questions from fans and shared a couple of reasons as to why the PS Vita wasn’t a platform of choice.

Yesterday, Capcom announced “Resident Evil Revelations Unveiled Edition” for release on Xbox 360, PS3, PC, and Wii U on May 21 in North America. Immediately, fans noticed that the PlayStation Vita has been omitted from this new release and now fans are wondering why Capcom chose not to put this once 3DS exclusive on Sony’s handheld.

Well, the reasons may surprise you.

When asked why there is no PS Vita version, he replied:
Quote:
…. when we were developing Revelations for new platforms we really wanted to hone in on the experience you get with a large format screen, surround sound, etc. This type of setup really helps players get sucked into the horror vibe and enjoy the game to its fullest extent.

He later added:

Quote:
3DS and PS-vita infrastructure let alone developing games for them are extremely different beasts. Even just the screens as you mention are completely different resolutions/functions.

It feels like Groundhog day everytime I come to this board, SAME TOPICS EVERYDAY.

You DS owners must be really bored.

Ouch.


What they actually mean:

The two systems are completely different, and it doesn't seem like we can get away with a lame port. Making a proper port costs a lot of money, accepting an exclusive deal from Nintendo gets us a lot of money, so it was really a no-brainer.

All they would need to do is recommend you use headphones and do it like dead space on mobile phones. 3d surround sound effect.
