I'm amazed that Sony didn't get together with SE, Capcom and all the major Japanese publishers for Vita the way they are doing for PS4. An RE, MH, FF, etc in the first year would have done wonders for the consoles trajectory and mind share.
Hell they could have been ports in most of those cases. Any mt framework games(DMC4, Lost Planet, RE5, RE:M, RE:R, Dragon's Dogma was dying to go portable and co-op to blow up much like MH, ) would have worked well on the platform. Any unity engine game should have been a go from SE such as TWEWY:SR+, Deux Ex:TF, Hitman Go.
When support should have been laughably easy Sony did nothing. Vita could never have been anything for that reason alone.
