    Debating on “Fragments Note”, the game had a bit of a buzz on Twitter, but sadly it’s timing couldn’t have been worse. Might end up picking up the Android port if it’s any good 🙁

    OMG the reaction by the developers when this was announce was horrible, I screencaped a really funny one, but I’ll just throw the PC one out instead:

      Trust me there were better ones, the one Kyle and Tyler talked about on the Vitacast, I saw it too. Really sad episode, good people got screwed over by Sony, and they didn’t even get a heads up 🙁

    I was thinking about getting Cytus Lambda. But I guess theres no point now.
    This seems pretty premature, specially with the playstation tv not being that old and an ideal platform for this stuff.

    Boy that’s cold. Not giving warning to a community you as a company actively courted to develop games for your systems has to be an all time low. I would not blame any indie developer who decides to be done with Sony for good.

    PSM had quite a gems but admittedly, alot of the content was pure dreck. However, that in no way should serve as an excuse for not giving your developers fair warning. I always thought they should have continued the minis program in lieu of PSM anyway. Maybe some of the games on the format and those in development can be made into pure Vita games.

    how about supporting some android games

  • I am very, very disappointed at this. I was looking forward to releasing games on the Vita in the near future. Unity allows you to publish games for Vita via PSM. Now, that possibility is gone. And there several games that –I know– are in development, which aimed to be released for Vita though this program.
