The new version of Revelations won't appear on PlayStation Vita, a decision Kawata shed more light on.

"The Vita is a very impressive piece of kit, but the fundamental concept of this release was to bring Revelations to home consoles. It's not a statement about the Vita or what it is, or my personal feelings towards it. It's just that this is the big screen, home console version of Resident Evil: Revelations."

Vita sales figures - which trail the 3DS by some margin in Japan - were not a reason, he concluded.

"The conversation literally didn't even get to the point where something like that would be a consideration. Once the decision had been made to release it for home consoles it was never a possibility."

So much for Sony advertising the Vita console quality on the go :3

lmao yes it was. It's just PR spin for them to stay in the good (or as "good" as they can get) with Sony.

So basically this whole thing says "We think there is no chance of a profit on the Vita." But I guess business is business which means less and less from my wallet.

Eh, after they said they are planning on bringing Resident Evil back to it's roots for whatever RE7 is going to be, I'm actually inclined to believe them. The port is just to test the waters for whether the market is there for a more "classic" RE game.
