Why no NBA game on vita?

I'm a big nba fan but don't have a ps vita game to play. I have mlb the show and that works and plays great I don't see why we don't get an nba game too.

Basketball games haven't typically sold well in Japan and no developer is going to create a Vita game solely for North America/Europe, sales are way too low for any big game to be profitable solely off sales in NA/EU.

That's too bad. The vita is awesome.

Haha yeah that's an expensive game if I buy a ps4. At some point I'll get one but for now I'll just relax.

I think the only method is to buy a PSP NBA game and copy it to the Vita. NBA 2K13 was the last version released for the PSP.

I really was looking for an NBA game too ... As well as a good boxing game.... But the only boxing game is Real Boxing.

Maybe their are backwards compatible psp basketball games we could try?

I often wonder how well MLB and FIFA sells since they put out new ones every year.

I've noticed that other than The Show, there haven't been any sports game of late on the Vita. EA put one Madden game on the Vita. And other than a few hiccups it was surprisingly good. I believe that most Vita owners are not sports game players and the companies that make Sports games don't feel like its worthwhile to put a Sports game on the system.
