Given the popularity of GTA games on the PSP, why didn't Sony and Rockstar release a GTA game on the Vita? Even a port would've been good...

I really don't get it and I think it was one of my most decisive factors of why the console never took off...

Lack of interest.
R* moved onto current gen consoles and completely avoided handheld gaming (aside from mobile phones).

There was actually one and it was dedicated-handheld exclusive to the Vita:

No it's not, that was a companion app for GTA V...
Which was also available for the iPhone/Android phones...

It has more gameplay than a visual novel and I never said it wasn't on phones.

You said it was "exclusive" to the vita, and like I said before it's not even a game at all, it's a companion app for GTA V, which is why when you view the app on the PSN store it's listed among other ps vita apps like nico nico or Hulu?

No, I did not say it was "exclusive" to the Vita unless you rip it out of context. It has both app-like features and gameplay.

This isn't a game?

so it's exactly like the visual novels this place goes crazy for. not a game.

ANYWAY

there wasn't a GTA on vita because GTA doesn't have almost naked pre-teen girls, so 90% of vita owners would have cried and not bought it.

I don't consider it a game. That "mini game" was only meant to affect the "happiness" stat for chop (Franklin's pet dog), and even then it was a f***ing useless stat.
Most of the core features for the app was moved to the web page anyways, so the companion app is practically useless now.
