Retro City Rampage creator says indie devs should 'jump onto' Vita after strong PSN sales

Following the success of Vblank Entertainment's Retro City Rampage on PlayStation Network, developer Brian Provinciano encouraged other indie developers to embrace the PlayStation Vita.

The game's creator took to Twitter recently to discuss the difference in release platforms. Retro City Rampage is available through Steam, Xbox Live Arcade and PlayStation Network, with a WiiWare release hitting tomorrow. Provinciano said that Sony "promoted the game incredibly well," and that Vita players "are hungry for games."

Provinciano added that the Vita was the easiest platform to develop for. Retro City Rampage launched for PlayStation Network and Windows PC last fall. The game was released on Xbox Live Arcade in January.
