Although the PS Vita was a place where we saw an independent gaming heyday, criticism from independent developers of PlayStation’s policies on indie games has resonated in recent days. At the time, when the canceled unexpected closure of the PS Vita digital store was announced, there were those who regretted that PlayStation did not give notice of this decision.
Will there be more developers looking to bring their new games to the Sony laptop? Will we continue to see these types of exclusive releases on the platform? These are questions for which we have no answers, for now it should be remembered that, although the PSP store has been shut down, you can still buy their games on PS3 and Vita.
