Indie is the future of gaming? Well I guess I don't have much to look forward to then. I don't like triple AAA games but indie titles are just as bad if not worse.
To add to this, a console sells based on it's software. Top tier developers push that software. When a game receives hype, it's usually due to its quality and how available it is. Example: The average consumer will purchase Metal Gear Sequel # 9292929 over Guacamole! The vita needs AAA games to be successful and pull in new sales. Indie games, while usually good, are not going to carry a system at all.
If I wanted to play an Indie game, I would probably buy it for my smart phone personally. the price point and low commitment plays well to phones and tablets.
I already have Persona 4 for the PS2 when it came out way back when. It's not enough to be a system seller for me.
I don't dislike the indie games themselves, but they hardly seem worth buying a Vita for. I know it's superficial to say, but it's hard to reconcile how those games couldn't be playable on the PSP (beyond no longer being supported, high piracy rate, etc) or something :/
Type-0 was supposed to be a new experience, and despite what feelings people have about SE as a company, their games at least have decent production value, and in the past have been system sellers for me.
(And waifu games do almost nothing for me. I want my huzbandos >3>)
